We are so excited to announce a new class here at Pintuck & Purl – our Master Class series. In this new series we will bring in special guest instructors who are sewing experts in garment, quilting or knitting fields. As those of you who have taken classes here at the shop know already – there is so much to be gained from a hands-on in-person class. Someone else might have a similar struggle as you and you can learn together, someone else might have one of those little tips to share that you never thought of. So this expert level class will be the ultimate in-person experience. Just imagine getting full access to these extremely talented people and their wealth of knowledge. These classes will include more exciting perks as well…
To kick this series off, we are beyond excited to welcome Lauren Taylor of Lladybird (I am a total fangirl!) to Pintuck & Purl this October 5-11th. If you are not familiar with Lauren, you can check out her blog, lladybird.com. Here you can view the astounding range of garments that she has crafted over the years. Her areas of expertise are garment making, fitting, drafting and construction techniques. This knowledge is bundled all together with a fun, bright personality. She has done numerous workshops around the country and we are so excited to bring her here as our inaugural instructor for the Master Class series!
Will this be normal class? No way! To make this series extra-extra special we will be closing down the retail portion of the shop so we will have the whole space to ourselves. The class fee also includes a welcome party, lunches, local excursions, signature drinks and a swanky dinner out on Saturday night. And oh will there be sewing. Lots and lots of sewing! We will have all the machines set up – or you can bring your own – and any tools needed will be at your disposal.
What will we sew? That’s up to you! After you register for the class, you can pick the project that you want to work on, and then will email Lauren a week or so before the class to let her know what you decided. Then we will get a jump start on the projects if needed (making muslins, getting initial questions answered, etc.). Is that Archer calling to you but you fear its plackets and collars? Or do you want help tweaking the fit of your favorite pattern to create your very own Tried & True pattern? Or maybe you need some hands-on help with that pesky coat pattern? Then this is the weekend for you! It is the best kind of choose-your-own-adventure sewing class that you could ever dream up!
Dates: October 5th – 9th
Limited to 10 Spaces
Registration Deadline: September 4th
How do I sign up? We are working on online class registration, but it isn’t quite ready yet. In the meantime, you can either call the shop, or swing by if you are in the area!
