Zakka: a Japanese design principle by which everyday objects are imbued with qualities that bring joy to the maker and user. 

The focus is on bags. Make a project bag and the Ultimate Zipper Pouch. Bring the joy of making into your life with a Zakka-inspired machine sewing class. We'll work through projects that combine creativity and skill to make beautiful pieces you can use and admire every day. Elevated fabric choices and refined finishing techniques. Personal style and fabric design are an important part of this class. 

You'll learn how to measure fabric to get the most out of it, safely use a rotary cutter, various seaming techniques, quilting techniques, and wrap your head around the inside-out-and-backwards nature of sewing. We'll also cover how to clean and maintain your machine, and trouble-shooting techniques to reduce trips to the machine doctor. Time permitting, additional projects will be added to the class.

No prior experience is necessary.

Class fee includes all materials.


Possible projects include:


Bucket Style Project Bag

Ultimate Zipper Pouch

Kiss-Lock Coin Purse (Time Permitting)


Class projects may vary in fabric selection and size.

Class fee includes a selection of high quality designer and imported fabric, and use of a sewing machine/tools while in class.
