Design and Sew One-on-One
=========================
Are there parts of designing and/or sewing that you don't understand or
want additional help with?  Melissa will sit at a design table with you,
explain things one-on-one, and teach you how to accomplish what you want
to do.

Bring in your patterns, fabrics, thread, pins, scissors, seam ripper, etc.
Eliminate the stress of hauling in your sewing machine, you can use ours.

Please bring a list of the designing skills that you need help with.  Each
person learns at a different rate, so don't try to learn everything in just
a couple of hours.

$15/hour
Contact Melissa Lea at 505-803-6966 or melissa@AbqApparelCenter.com to
schedule a session.
