The “How to” series of workshops with experienced teacher and textile artist, designer Gary Mills, are short micro workshops to help you improve and develop skills in varying sewing and textiles processes. In this workshop Gary will show you how to make a lovely case to hold your fabric rotary cutter, fabric sheers and embroidery scissors.

What You Will Learn in this Workshop
