Pants-Making Intensive at Workroom Social

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS:

Weekend Garment Workshop at Finch Sewing Studio
February 24-26, 2017
Finch Knitting & Sewing Studio, Leesburg, VA
Come spend a weekend working through a sewing project of your choosing with meeee as your guide! We will spend 2 glorious days in Finch Sewing Studio, working in a small group, to focus on sharpening your sewing skills and working through fabric, pattern and construction issues to help you take a big leap forward in your personal sewing practice.

Jeans Making Sewing Intensive
March 2-3, 2017
Workroom Social, Brooklyn, NY
Let me show you how fun and fulfilling it is to make your own jeans! In this class, we will work out way through the Ginger Jeans pattern (my personal favorite!), learning the basics of fitting and construction for making your own jeans. We will also go over all the fun extras that separate jeans from mere pants – topstitching, fancy seam finishes, and installing hardware. Yay!

Weekend Pants-Making Intensive
March 3-4, 2017
Workroom Social, Brooklyn, NY
Pants Party in NYC! Join me in Brooklyn for a fun weekend of pants-sewing, where you’ll learn basic fitting and pattern alterations, fly front installation, adding pockets, inserting a waistband – among other things!

NASHVILLE CLASSES:

Select Thursdays, 2016 6-9PM
Tailor Night at Craft South, Nashville, TN
Join me on select Thursdays for Tailor Night! Just like my big weekend workshops, except shorter times/lower price ($35!) and RIGHT HERE IN NASHVILLE! Tailor Night is structured the same as a typical Craft South Class – except you get to pick the project you want to work on! Want to make some jeans? Trying to figure out how to fit the armscye of your bodice? Just want to hang out and socialize with other sewing peeps? This is the class for you!

I also do lots of other classes and workshops at Craft South! Classes change monthly, and you can check out the calendar and sign up here. I am also available for private lessons at the shop on Fridays; either via drop-in (you’ll probably want to call first to make sure I’m there that day!) or you can schedule an appointment online!

      Sometimes I go to NYC to teach a pants-making workshop at Workroom Social in Brooklyn! Dunno if pants are your jam or not, but you should totally consider coming to the next one we do 😀
