Fee: $62/$55 members
Registration: Registration is closed. For info on future sessions, sign up for our e-list.

Baskets can be made in many ways, and in this workshop artist Molly Hassler will show you how to use a sewing machine to create baskets from clothesline and colored thread. Once you master the technique, you can make baskets of different sizes and you can sew them into totes or backpacks. You will learn (or relearn) the basics of machine sewing as you construct your own reusable baskets. Hassler will guide you through threading the machine and will teach you how to use different stitches and settings. You’ll get plenty of practice as you work your way through two baskets. Sewing machines and all supplies provided.
Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for studio work as well as the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.
