  1. I’m wondering how many spaces you have available for the April 2011 beginners classes and when you will be having your next beginners classes(May, June). Also what would I need to bring? I have my own sewing machine but it’s pretty old and I don’t know if that will make a difference or not. I have no thread or fabric.
