      Event Description:
      In this class, your instructor Fanie will guide you through the process of creating a full-bodied reversible chef’s apron.

      We ask students to be comfortable using a sewing machine and be 16+

      Students are asked to bring their own style/pattern of fabric to class.

      To make a reversible apron, please bring 2 yards of fabric (bring 1 yard each of 2 different fabrics)
      If you don’t want a reversible apron, then just 1 yard of fabric is needed.

      Fanie will instruct students from cutting the material to the pattern, to adding pockets, and connecting the lace for tying the apron on.

      The cost of this class has been greatly discounted thanks to the generosity of the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut and their dedication to equitable education in Eastern Connecticut.
