Ginger Jeans - next session
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 18 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 refreshments and time to 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 6 students (16 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
- Level: Intermediate. You are way beyond pj pants and are comfortable using a sewing machine. You have a closet of Scout tees. You finished the last project you did with Virginia.
- We provide: samples of the jeans in a nice size range, studio space, tracing paper, tools, machines, refreshments, and expertise.
- You bring: A copy of the pattern (available in the store), fabric you love (it doesn't have to be denim - a stretch twill works great, too), interfacing, pocket lining fabric, a hardware kit, jean zipper, and coordinating thread for stitching your jeans as well as topstitching thread; we offer 15% off materials purchased for any of our classes. Don’t forget lunch! Or visit one of the great local eateries in Inman Square!
- Class length: 6 hours on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
