This class is designed for all fiber artists: weavers, felters, dyers, and surface designers—to inspire and help you make a beautiful, unique jacket from your own fabrics, during a week of fun. We’ll begin with a Mary Sue Jacket Trunk Show. With help you’ll choose a suitable style for you and your fabric (approx. 5 yards of 30″ width), alter your pattern if needed, and sew, using contemporary and classic methods. Weavers have the option of weaving their fabric in class. (Looms and weaving accessories provided.) Sewing machine in good working order required.
