Let's Sew a Maya Bag
Let's Sew a Maya Bag : Coffee Chat Stitch and Sew
Let's chat, have a coffee, meet new people and sew a Maya Bag. This is not an online course. It is a live, interactive online session where you can see what I am doing, I can see your work you can chat and ask questions and we can all sew together.

Let's Sew a Maya Bag
About the Event
I will be using the Stitch Clever Maya Bag pattern. This is available to purchase either in PDF instant download format or as a traditional Paper Pattern. There are also kits available in the online shop on the website. Both include step by step instructions.
I will sew a Maya bag along with you. You will need a small amount of fabric for the main section of the bag and a contrasting section for the top, and a purchased pair of round bag handles. Depending on your skill level, we will all be well on the way to finishing the bag before the end of the hour. If you haven’t finished, don’t worry as the pattern includes full instructions for making and you will be able to finish it in your own time. I will stay online for 15 minutes after the session to answer any questions that you may have and for a general chat.
What are Coffee Chat Stitch and Sew Sessions?
I have planned these sessions for those of you who want to have like-minded company when you are sewing. Sewing can be quite lonely, we are generally in a room on our own. I find that I can sometimes be much more inspired if I sew whilst chatting to others. What could be nicer than sewing with other people. This has not been possible during lockdown and even after lockdown it will still be great to “meet” new people and getting inspired by people we would never bump into in the “physical” world.
Each sewing session lasts for one hour, followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers. Every session includes a different project. The sessions are interactive, not the traditional online sessions that you have to watch on your own. You can enjoy sewing and chatting with everyone and I will be there to guide your sewing and answer any questions you may have along the way. All you need is a computer and internet connection. Sessions take place over Zoom, which is free. When you book you will be sent a link, simply click on the link and it will take you through. It only takes a minute or so, but I will log on about 10 minutes before, so you can log on early and be ready to start on time.
