Everyone seems to be enjoying a day of sewing at the Bali Briefcase workshop today. This is our "classroom". It doubles as a living room and makes for an intimate and cozy experience.
Our fall workshop schedule has been posted on our website. Please check it out and get in touch if you have any questions or wish to register for one or more sessions.
