Do you know of ‘By Annie’ designs? If you don’t you will soon. Annie’s bags are seen everywhere and made in every sort of amazing fabric. The distinguishing feature of Annies bags is the use of her ‘Soft’n’Stable’ bag wadding and her very own range of bright ‘bag hardy’ interchangeable zips & mesh. Her range also includes hard to find sturdy hardware such as D rings, rectangle spacer units and spring clip sets in nickel or antique brass. Annie’s bag designs are innovative and diverse and the patterns are very popular and easy to understand. We are incredibly lucky in Berry to have the chance to host Annie Unrein so you can all learn to make her best selling Ultimate Travel Bag! (And a second smaller project if you are fast!) OR the Bon Voyage Tote (And a second smaller project if you are fast!).
We’ve chosen the projects to give you the choice of a useful, large bag with loads of bag construction learning opportunities or a smaller more manageable project with different construction and zip insertion techniques. We imagine that there will be two groups in class, some working on the large Ultimate Travel Bag and some working on the Bon Voyage tote. Each group will see and hear about the techniques the other is employing during the course of the two days so it’s almost like two classes in one. Also if you are speedy, you may of course begin a second smaller project while we have Annie on hand to guide us!
