About the classes:
Kerrie’s classes are fun and friendly with expert advice and guidance enabling you to learn to sew with confidence or improve your own sewing skills.
During the course, you will be making the popular ‘Greta Bag’
. Please note there will only be four spaces to allow for lots of support during the classes. This bag was designed by Kerrie to be perfect all rounder, featuring pockets on the front and back of the bag. The front of the bag has a super-useful almost hidden zipper which is located to the left of the triangular pocket which means this is perfect for slipping your mobile phone in and keeping it hidden and secure. Accessible by a 6″ zipper, the envelope zipper pocket that features on the back of the bag is perfectly located for easy access for your keys and small change. The main pocket of the bag features an extra long recess zipper allowing you to open up the zipper and access the full contents. The bag has an adjustable strap featuring an adjustable slider, two D rings and two swivel hooks.
