Degen Sayer a Venice bag maker and textile artist will demonstrate samples of her purses and explain how she makes the fabric for her custom designed bags and purses. She will not be teaching or selling, but will answer all your "How did you...." questions. You will be delighted in her presence.
  
After Degen's presentation, there will be time for a deep dive Show 'n Tell. You will have ample time to share what you completed or what you are in the process of. We can offer suggestions if you are indecisive or stuck on your project.
