Learn in person with No Trace


Holiday Gnome Ornaments!

Sunday, 12/11, 3-5pm at the No Trace sewing studio in Capitola (near New Brighton Middle school) -$40.

We’ll make these adorable gnome ornaments using a mix of hand sewing & machine sewing & working with all natural materials (cotton & wool & wood).  All skill levels are welcome – total beginners & more experienced sewers.

All supplies will be provided.

Winter classes are held inside my sewing studio so your child may want to wear a mask.  

Space is limited so reserve your spot ASAP!  Email Liz at contactus@notraceshop.com for details to reserve your spot.


Financial aid is available!

Classes are limited to a small group and we’ll be working at Liz’s sewing studio & attached outdoor patio in the warmer months! Winter classes are held indoors & you are welcome to wear a mask. 

Space is limited! To reserve a spot, email Liz at contactus@notraceshop.com with your name & age.  

Minimum class size is 3 students.  If fewer than 3 students register, class will be cancelled with a full refund.
