Ginger Jeans - 3 session weekend
You’re finally ready to take on jeans or figure out just what you’ve been missing. You want a true weekend of sewing, with other people that are passionate about sewing. You've been dreaming of 15 hours at gather here making something truly awesome.
We will start our "weekend" on Friday, taking measurements, tracing the pattern, and cutting out your jeans. There will be samples to try on and you can grab last minute supplies. Saturday we'll focus on basting and fitting our jeans. Then it's all about modifications and stitching. We'll take a 30+ minute break to grab lunch so we can keep our heads in the game.
Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
