You can make...


The Bucket Hat ($12 kit fee)

What's old is new - function meets fashion as the Bucket Hat is roaring back in popularity. Choose from many fabric options, figure out your size, cut your pattern pieces, and sew up an adorable hat to wear around the Expo and surprise everyone at home!

Zippered Bag ($5 kit fee)

Come see how easy it is to print your own design on nearly any type of fabric, including canvas, using the Ricoh (Direct-to-Garment) DTG Printer provided by Juki. It's not just for garments! Once you've printed the design on the canvas, we will show you how to finish the bag, zipper & all, on a Juki Serger. This bag is the perfect size to keep all your sewing notions handy and organized and is super quick & easy to make. Kits are limited, sign up at the Booth!


Ice Cream Koozie ($5 kit fee)

Make a koozie for your late-night snacking on a hot evening. This clever item will keep your hands warm while enjoying your favorite frozen snack. Originally intended for pint-sized ice cream containers, this koozie can also be used in the microwave with single-serving soups to keep your hands from getting hot! This project will be made on a Juki Sewing machine & is microwave safe (if the correct batting & thread are used - both included in the kit). They make great gifts & are fast and easy to make! Kits are limited, sign up at the Booth!
