studio sew.

Aw yea, Hello Stitch studio day all up in this biz! My zipper workshop came with a free studio day and I was all over it. I wanted to practice sewing more zipper pouches.

I prepped all of my fabric before heading into the studio so I could maximize sewing time. I wasn’t sure how long it would all take but I had prepped for seven pouches.ย I ended up sewing four pouches in four hours. The first pouch took the longest and it got easier to follow all the steps the more I made.

I used fabric and zippers from Joann and Black Squirrel. Dreamy! I am loving mixing and matching fabric designs. And I’m learning more about what fabrics work best for this type of project.

What’s great about a studio pass is you get access to all the space and to sewing pros. It was so convenient to have areas set up for all aspects of sewing – the ironing area, the cutting area, and the sewing area.ย There’s also a lounge area, beverages, and a small market space if you need a break. And, you can also become a monthly member for added perks, too.

There were a few classes happening while I was hanging out; it was fun to see what people were working on. Here are my finished pouches:

I met two of the owners – they were super helpful when I got stumped. I learned a few tips to troubleshoot missteps and to try for next time. Until we meet again, Hello Stitch!

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.
