Jodi Otto, an Administrative Assistant (and sewing enthusiast) decided to give one of the classes a try! She decided on the “Sew a Luckyjuju Owl Doll” class (taught by: Katia Ferris). She began by gathering all the materials and then started watching the videos. In this particular class there were 9 videos totaling to 1hr and 13 minutes. See her process and the final result below:

Jodi said she loved how thorough the sections were and how easy it was to follow. She enjoyed making the owl doll so much that she is making two others. One will be on display at each of our branches, so check it out in person!
