Sewing Bootcamp

Textiles, Class/Workshop

Learn to upcycle your own clothes in this beginning sewing “bootcamp” series. Get familiar with the care and use of a 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 sewing an upcycled knit/sweatshirt dress or tunic in the second session. The final class will focus on embellishments and finishing touches, 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.
