SASHIKO DENIM • Hand Sewing Class, October 13 (9-12 pm) Saturday$75.00
Learn to personalize your clothes with mesmerizing sashiko patterns in this class taught by Jessica Marquez, author of Make + Mend. Students will learn how to transfer patterns directly onto their garment, how to adjust the scale of the pattern to make fit the dimensions of their piece, best tools and materials for this application, and how to stitch sashiko. Tips and tricks will be shared, like how to create a flawless finish inside your garment and line the garment with a base fabric patch. Please bring an article of clothing you’d like to embellish. While these techniques can be applied to all kinds of garments and textiles, heavy weight jackets (denim, twill, cotton, linen), button-up shirt, or denim jeans are recommended.
