In just under a month, we will see the arrival of one our newest classes and formats for the shop, the Capsule Club. This class is based around building a capsule wardrobe. Never heard of a capsule wardrobe? No worries! A capsule wardrobe means creating a compact collection of staple pieces in a coordinating color scheme. This way they are able to be mixed and matched throughout the seasons. Fun, right? We are combining that with the fantastic line of Bernina sergers to get you out of your sewing rut and learning new techniques! ‘Do I need a serger?’ is a question we hear frequently at the shop, so if you aren’t sure if one is for you, this is the best way to find out!
In this class we will focus on making four pieces each quarter. That is the goal, but if you want to only make one per season, that’s fine too! We will have four suggested patterns for each season, but we will also have some other ideas if the ones we have selected don’t fit your aesthetic or lifestyle. This is YOUR wardrobe, remember. There is no point spending time on pieces that will just take up space!
The class will be split up into two parts. Once a quarter we will have a lecture/class night where we will go over the focus for that quarter, watch a webinar made by Capsule Club creator Jaime Hock, and then learn a hands-on technique with our machines. The second part (which is optional) is to come to one of our monthly sewing sessions (or purchase a punch card for use of our Studio at a Capsule Club Member rate). We want this to work with your needs and schedule!
The first focus will be on Summer and the first class/lecture will be on March 16. You can sign up for the class here. This is where you can also sign up for the punch card. If you are interested in attending the monthly sewing sessions those can be found here: March, April, and May. You can do one part, or even all three! This a customizable class!
Any other questions? Let us know. We can’t wait to see you!
