Updated Class Schedule for 2016, Fall Classes

Index for class schedules:

LEGGINGS, October 24th – 10am to 4pm.  This is a one-day class on leggings which have grown to be a most instrumental garment in a fashionista’s wardrobe.  You can wear long shirts, tunics, long tops, and all sorts of wonderful things over leggings that can be a staple for wardrobe.  After you have your black ones made, then you can think about some colors, and I even like them in stretch lace for evening or more formal looks.  Now…..leggings are NOT PANTS, but they are a vital part of your wardrobe.  You must have fabric that has 50% stretch, or go to Helen Enox Fabrics (here locally on NW corner of 74th & S. Penn or call 405.685.1279 and the gals will fix you up), for fabric.  I recommend black for first pants.   Call Bernina to reserve a space: 405.840.8911.  One day: $60.

 

MANNEQUIN, October 31st & November 1st –  10am to 4pm.  Put on your best Halloween cap and come make a mannequin. Ya’ll this is one of the best tools you can have in your sewing studio and I am still astonished at how intuitive this tool is.  Go here to learn where to order the inside form ONLY.  Do NOT ORDER THE COVER.  I don’t like the cover it comes with.  Instead get some cotton duck or canvas muslin  and and long (22″) upholstery metal separating zipper and Vogue 1004. We will make a cover from that.  The last hours of class are spent tissue fitting a pattern or a garment on your mannequin (be prepared to name her too!).  Call Bernina to reserve a space: 405.840.8911.  $120.
