2021 New Year's Eve Sew-Along
Ring in the New Year by making a brand new, exclusive Aurora Bag by Sallie Tomato with sewists from around the world. We'll join each other virtually to learn new techniques, make a fabulous bag from start to finish, and celebrate the start of 2022 together!
Once you pay the cover charge, you'll have access to the Viewing Room, where you'll watch the event on New Year's Eve. Choose the time that works for you! We'll be LIVE at 12pm noon EST, but you can watch anytime that's convenient for you after the event ends.
We'll start with the optional machine embroidery, learning how to create freestanding patches in the hoop. Ellen March from Sulky will show you the ropes. Alternatively, if you choose the "basic" kit (without machine embroidery supplies), your patch is premade and ready to add to your bag where desired!
Jessica Barrera of Sallie Tomato will take you through constructing the Aurora Bag from start to finish in REAL TIME.
Toast to the New Year early with fellow sewists, doing what you LOVE! Wear your bag out THIS VERY EVENING for more celebrating!
