Anita Goodesign Workshop is June 11, 12 or 13th. Choose the date and time that works best for you. Gather your friends for another fun workshop on a Zippered Butterfly Bag created completely in the hoop, zipper and all! The bag uses a unique technique that places the zipper on top of the bag instead of the side for a look that differs from traditional In the Hoop embroidery. It is the perfect size for makeup, toiletries, or school supplies. The butterfly motif is beautiful and adds the perfect finishing touch. The workshop is scheduled for June 11, 12 or 13th, with both morning and afternoon slots available. Each workshop is limited to 8 per session. All machines and supplies are furnished for a $10 fee and receive a classroom placket valued at $59.95. Sign up soon as spaces are limited!!
