Adults begin to Sew with Jo

Miss Jo

Miss Jo will get you started on a fun way to create your own ADULT clothing

A little bit of fabric, trim, thread and a LOT of imagination.   Throw in someone who can help you make that creation come to life!

Try some of these projects first (if you have never sewn before).  Then, you can only imagine where you will go!
If you have sewn before, Miss Jo will work with you on whatever project you would like.  Otherwise, if you are a beginner, this is a 4 week class to get you started..  Students will start with the pillow case, zippered bag and pajama pants.  THEN, they will discuss with Miss Jo what to do next.  That is where the fun begins.....
