If you already know the basics, these classes might be of interest:

• “Versatile Wave Purse,” an intermediate-level class in which students create a purse with a zipper closure and pockets on the inside, then make interchangeable, reversible covers. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 30. $32.

 

Two free classes will also be held:

 

• “Sewphisticated Ladies,” a show-and-tell and discussion of techniques for owners of Bernina 820/830 sewing machines. 12:30 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month for three months, starting Sept. 17.

 

• “Monday Knitters,” in which participants work on their own knitting projects and on hats to be donated. Canned goods or non-perishable food items are requested, so that they can be donated to local food pantries. 10 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. on the first Monday of each month.

 

“For 25 years, our mission statement has included ‘passing down the craft,’” says Patchwork Plus co-owner Judi West, who notes that the shop offers a variety of demonstrations and other educational programs throughout the year.
