If you need help with these steps often craft store employees (who you can meet with personally) and/or youtube videos are of great assistance. Please let the instructor know prior to class if you are still struggling and we will find a way to help. We will be using sewing machines and irons. An adult must be in the household and available during class time in case of emergencies!
