You can make...


The Infinity Scarf ($12 kit fee)
Perfect for a crisp fall or winter day, the Infinity Scarf is a must-know technique to create a matching fashion accessory for any occasion. Choose from many fabric options and make one to wear around the Expo.


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!
