Vivian Handbag

2 Fridays: June 22th & 29th       12:30 -4:30 pm      

Vivian has a classic vintage style with a modern appeal. The handbag size is ideal to use daily as a large purse. The traveler can carry everything you need for your next adventure (and probably more). Two exterior slip pockets are perfect for your keys and phone, and one lining zippered pocket for extra organization.  Quilting the exterior fabric can give your bag an expensive designer look to be admired by all.  I’ll say it—Vera who?

Edge to Edge Quilting on Your Embroidery Machine
