Everyone’s been asking for group classes, so here they are!
First Tuesdays will be Quilt Clinic. We’ll be playing with modern quilting methods while making simple projects such as totes & zippered pouches. The emphasis being on “play”, this is what helps our creativity-when was the last time you actually played and experimented with fabrics, color and thread? October 4th we’ll be making a tote using a couple different fabrics and in-line quiting-this really changes the look of fabrics when using different colors of thread-this is easy but very impressive!
Second Tuesdays will be Alterations Clinic, some months will have a specific topic as well, so bring something that applies, as well as some other garments to work on. I’ll guide you on each step – hems, taking in or letting out, etc. October 11 will be Hollywood hems, learn how to hem your jeans leaving the original stitching, very cool – seriously!
Third Tuesdays will be project classes. Easy stuff like skirts, accessories, wine totes, applique pillows, and more! October 18 will be a skirt workshop-I am in love with all the maxi skirts at Anthropologie and just can’t get enough! I”ve made two so far, using our fabulous Amy Butler Challis. Flowing fabric like challis, stable knits or soft cords would be perfect!
November classes will include a fun quilted zippered pouch, open alterations clinic and a quilted wine tote. Stop in to see the class samples – I’ve been having lots of fun working on them! And, of course, your class suggestions are always welcome-if you see a project you’d like to learn, let me know!
Remember to sign up early and bring a friend! Each session is $35 and meets from 6-8:30pm. We do have a minimum of 3 students to hold the classes, and payment is due upon registration, which must be made at least 5 days in advance, you’ll also get your supply list and homework at that time! Class sizes are limited. And, don’t worry – we still have lots of time open for private lessons!
Many of the projects require you to cut and prepare before the class-that way we can get sewing faster!! You can always stop in to prep your class projects in the studio, too, just call ahead and we’ll make room for you! Group classes are for intermediate seamsters, you should be familiar with your machine and sew confidently. Private lessons are suggested for beginners.
You are encouraged to bring your own machine & sewing kit (be sure all your tools are labeled!
Tuesdays just got fun!
