What you'll learn in this bag class:

Who doesn't love a giant tote? Join us to make the perfect big bag for all your weekend getaways!

In just one afternoon we'll walk you through how to sew a sturdy, lined tote bag, complete with two pockets and a zip closure. 

We'll cover:

  • Bag construction fundamentals
  • How to create a wide, square bottom for your tote
  • How to use interfacing to add body and strength to your bag
  • Making a lining for a bag and attaching straps
  • Installing a zipper
  • Installing a magnetic snap

Fabric and other supplies will be available for purchase in our retail shop at a 10% discount to students. All tools needed to complete this class will be provided and sewing machines will be available courtesy of BERNINA of America.

Skill requirements: This is a confident beginner sewing workshop; you do not need to have any experience sewing bags, but you must have basic machine-sewing skills. Our Sewing 101 class (or equivalent) is a prerequisite for this class.

Refund Policy


We do not issue refunds on workshop registrations.

If you register for a workshop and later become unable to attend, we will gladly offer a school credit if you notify us at least 48 hours before the workshop. We are unable to offer credits of any kind, or honor reschedule requests, with less than 48 hours advance notice. 

About Our Policy

Our workshops require a great deal of pre-planning, including ordering supplies and tools, booking staff, and making commitments to pay our instructors -- all based on the number of students who register. When students ask to cancel or reschedule at the last minute, we lose money. As a small business, we are unable to absorb these costs and still keep our class prices low.  

In fairness to all of our customers we are unable to make exceptions to our policy, including for reasons of illness or travel. If you are unable to attend a workshop at the last minute, we suggest giving your spot to a friend!

Thank you for understanding!

Sew A Weekender Bag
Reviewed by taylor m. on 8/30/2022
This class was great. The fabric options were amazing. The instructor was very nice and was able to explain every step to every person. I loved that everyone in the class moved at their own pace. The instructor was very knowledgeable regarding sewing and made every one comfortable no matter what level of sewer they were. My bag came out perfectly!
