Zippy Notions Bag

Posted by on Jul 14, 2017 in Programs | 0 comments

The Zippy Notions Bag is a multi-zippered bag with storage space in and between 2 zippered pockets and a convenient front tray. When the front tray lies down it becomes a handy place for your sewing notions which keep them contained while you sew. Stops tools from rolling away!

PLEASE read the brochure and have your pieces cut before you arrive. Your preparation gives you a chance to actually finish this project by the end of the day.
