Free quality vinyl in several colors for your purse!


    Thanks to a generous donation of quality fabric, Van Wert and Sew Fun neighborhood groups are offering members a daylong "Purse-palooza" workshop where we will - you guessed it - make a purse! The fabric is a nice weight vinyl and there are plenty of rich yummy colors - including black, beige, gray and more. Perfect for a leather-look purse for yourself or as a gift. Here's the scoop:

      Purse-palooza Workshop

      Friday, August 17, 2018

      10 a.m. to 4 p.m. - or as long as you can stay

       Aboite Community Room, 11321 Aboite Center Road, Fort Wayne, 46814

       Lunch is on your own - there are lots of restaurants nearby

    Pick out your favorite purse pattern to use! Use all vinyl or we will also have some pretty upholestry fabric available. Or, bring your own fabric to mix with the vinyl. Use your pattern to get your supply list for any lining fabric or hardware, etc. you need for your purse. We will only provide the vinyl and upholestry fabrics. Be sure to bring a leather needle for sewing the vinyl - it will make the job easier.  

    We will be there to help so if it is a pattern you have been wanting to make but feel it is a little challenging have no fear. Together we will make it work. 


    Special thanks to Pam Reichhart for the fabric and Carolyn Hormann for spearheading this fun event. If you can come, please call or email Carolyn at or 260-749-0763 or Marilyn Morgan at or 419-203-7016.
