Klum House - Little Package Cycling Caps

Portland: Learn to Sew a Cycling Cap Class!

If you’ve wanted to set aside the time to finally make yourself a cycling cap, why not book a class? Meet some new people, have help to get over any tricky bits, and check that project off your list?

Ellie at Klum House, a professional seamstress and sewing instructor, is teaching cap sewing classes in Portland, Oregon on August 9th and October 3rd. The classes are $60, but you can use the coupon “LUCKY YOU” to get 50% off. And I’ve jumped on the wagon and am offering 35% off Little Package downloadable sewing patterns. Just use the coupon code “AUGUSTCAPS” during checkout. Coupon expires end of day August 9.

Next class is October 3rd!

Have fun!
