Class on making a Non-slip Foot Pedal Pad

This pad really works to keep your foot pedal from slipping away from you as you sew.  All supplies will be provided except those listed here.  Bring your sewing machine & supplies, a new sharp #10 needle, and thread to match your fabric.  Pre-cut  (2) 2 1/2″ x WOF strips of any fabric.  This is a good place to use up ‘ugly’ fabric.  It goes on the floor, after all.
