The class listings are going up at the end of the month for Sewing at the Beach 2018 and I want to add more photos of the classes I am offering. I will post each class individually so it is easier to find and update as SATB gets closer. Here is the Link for any and all information: http://www.sewingatthebeach.com/
The two day workshop for Knits:
Students have a choice between a t-shirt (sleeveless or short sleeve,) 4 panel skirt, or pillow. These below are a few ideas. Yardage will be provided for this class and the colorways will be announced at a later date.
We are all familiar with Alabama Chanin and her beautiful intensive hand work and design using Jersey knit fabric. I take inspiration from her work but create my garments using the sewing machine and machine embroidery. Come to this 2 day workshop and learn reverse applique and working with knits using our sewing machines, sergers and embroidery machines. However a machine embroidery machine is not required and the designs can be manually stitched for the same effect. Student will be given yardage for the one of the projects being offered. The options are: Knit Skirt, Knit T-Shirt, or knit pillow. Knits are wonderful to create garments with and the embellishments can turn a simple T-shirt in to Haute Couture. What ever you choose to make, no two garments will be the same. These will be one of a kind art wear!
Yardage fabric will be supplied. The pattern will be created the first morning, the design layout will be the first afternoon. The second day is dedicated to stitching and creating!
Bring your best fitting T-Shirt to copy the pattern if you want to make a t-shirt.. I want the best fitting and favorite wearing shirt for you, especially at the neck and shoulder seams. If you would like to make the skirt, the pattern is a simple four panel skirt made with your measurements
Tissue paper/ drafting paper, or crafting paper to trace and make your pattern pieces. Paper scissors and marking pencil/pen and tape measure.
Good sharp scissors for comfortably cutting and trimming. Lace applique, blunt tip ginghers or havels, everyone is different so bring a couple. SHARP is essential!
Basic sewing supplies, Machine in good working order. Embroidery Unit and assorted hoops. Extras like clover clips, needle threaders and favorite readers for better viewing, all help!
When you sign up for class please tell me your format for machine embroidery designs and your email address for receiving the designs ahead of time.
More classes will be posted later
