Lisa Wood asked:
I would like to take your hexagon coin purse workshop - I don't have a sewing machine but can sew well by hand - can I take this class? Lisa
bitterpurl answered:
hi Lisa, we do the hexies by hand but sew them to the body and then do everything else by machine. it's a lot of layers to sew through with the interfacing we use. maybe if you trim the interfacing so it doesn't reach the seams, reducing the bulk, it would be doable. I'd hate to say yes and have you be disappointed, especially since I haven't tried it.
