Re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose—that's the theme of this class! You will start with re-purposing a pair of jeans: get your scissors out, save the pocket and pants legs, and invent your own tote bag! 

You will learn basic sewing machine skills on BARN's sewing machines in the process, and you'll get ideas for using hand-stitching and other techniques, too. From there, we will share other examples of up-cycling fashion from thrift stores or your own wardrobe, allowing you to design your own projects. BARN Fiber artists will be there to mentor you along your way.
