Learn how to fit and sew clothing from your own handwoven, hand-printed, dyed, quilted, felted, commercial or other special fabrics, as well as how to achieve more polished and professional results in your garment making. Newcomers will construct a basic custom-fit, unlined jacket or lined vest with pre-washed fabric brought to class, while learning inspiring construction techniques. Returnees may opt to make a variation on the jacket (swing version, lining, etc.), or a tunic, or bring their own patterns and agenda. Gain confidence in your skills and reflect your creativity, no matter what level. Sewing machine in good working order required. (For air travelers, a limited number of sewing machines are available to rent for class use.)
