Sewing Bootcamp

Textiles

Note: This workshop is held on two consecutive Saturday mornings (9/2 & 9/9) from 10am-1pm. Learn to upcycle or alter your own clothes in this beginning sewing “bootcamp” series! Get familiar with the care and use of your sewing machine and solving basic sewing problems, take accurate body measurements and learn to fit items to your own aesthetic and body type! Sew a knit cap in the first class, and move on to constructing a garment or other project of your choice, such as a knit or woven dress, top, skirt, or pant. We will focus on embellishments and finishing touches specific to your project, i.e. pockets, zippers, buttons/buttonholes, hems, etc. Take away a short guide and reference list to assist you in applying your new skills at home. Please note that you will be working on the Ragfinery Baby Loc machines and we will not be working with patterns.
