BRING A BAG LUNCH OR SNACK AND SOMETHING TO DRINK. We will have time to socialize, listen to good music and eat together for about 30 minutes.

No sewing is necessary in this creative class using fabric to embellish a basic pair of old canvas sneakers or new ones. They will be absolutely waterproof afterwards and fun to use all summer long at your favorite activities like the pool. Class good for guy’s n gals, the sky is the limit; any kind of cotton themed fabric, flat lace, ribbon, and decorative trim, will work. Show your interest in anime, cats, dogs, super heroes, books, astronomy, let your new sneakers show your true self. This is a great DIY project to breathe new life into an old pair of sneakers or tennis shoes. Be the envy of family and friends with sneakers that express your favorite colors and imagination. Bring a friend, mom bring your daughters, or Grandma bring your grandkids and do the project together. Great bonding activity. Christmas is not far away.
