Neal's Monthly Classes
Neal's has several classes that meet every month.  
There is no long term commitment required. 
Come to as many as you like as often as you can.  
Pick the class that suits your sewing needs. 

  Long-Arm Sew & Tell
If you own a long-arm, or even if you have been contemplating a long-arm you will want to attend this club.  Mary will begin each class showing a project, or tip and then it is your turn.  Bring a project you have finished, or one you are starting.  If you are unable to do that bring a question or a tip to share.  Sharing makes everyone a better sewist.  We can learn from each other's triumphs and tragedies.
