For students booking a room for the weekend, we suggest booking for Fri/Sat night, as we will be starting early on Sat and Sun mornings

Sept 30 - Oct 2
Sept 30 - Fri - 6-9p
We begin this project on Friday evening, after the typical work day and a chance to catch some dinner and settle into your hotel room (if needed). All kits will be prepped and set up prior to your arrival.
Oct 1 - Sat - 8a-6p
A full day of sewing with a break for lunch! Most of our bag construction will be completed during this block!
Oct 2 - Sun - 9a-2p
The last (few, but time consuming) steps are completed during day 3. Final piecing of the main front/back with the gusset and binding closures are saved for this special day. This way, we hit the last few steps with fresh minds! Typically, we can finish before a lunch break, but enough time is scheduled for those who need a little extra on these last steps.
Class prep is included for the weekend workshop, however, you will provide your own main and contrast fabric (can be purchased directly from Sew O'side). All fabric (1.5yd each of main and contrast) need to be received at Sew O'side Headquarters no later than Sept 10, 2022 (mail or drop off is ok). All other materials and tools will be provided in your kit, as well as some pre-made pieces.
Although the Ultimate Travel Bag *can* be completed with a domestic machine, a semi-industrial is highly recommended. A small handful of Semi-Industrial will be available for rent for the weekend. We currently have Juki 2010q and TL18 machines available as rentals for advanced projects classes.
