wouldja like to sew up a li'l sexy chic slouchy dolman top with me? wouldja like to have a drink after and gab with sewists and swap fabrics and patterns and make general merriment? WELL COME ON THEN!
jennifer of workroom social is hosting a special manhattan pop up event, this may 2-4, and saturday boasts not one, not two, but three classes dedicated to sewing knits.
knits get a bad rap. i fell in love with jersey before anyone could tell me "oooh that's hard to work with." it's super NOT! this wonder material and i have had affairs on straight stitch machines (yes it can be done) on zig zags (where it can be done even more so) and of course with ye olde serger (where it can be done once you wanna drop a dime or two). all three machines can produce great results, so long as you play with jersey the way it wants to be played with. then it'll take all the fondling you can give.
in this two hour class, we'll be working with a zig zag, and the pop up studio will be filled with all the tools and equipment we'll need. you'll be supplied with oak tag paper patterns and a class guide chock full of resources and fabric suggestions. the class is small: 6 seats, plenty of attention, and the end of class will find you in a brand new me-made ultra comfy super chic top, which of course you should wear to the party directly afterwards.
oh, did i mention, jennifer set my class up riiiiight before the cocktail party? good thinkin, gal. GOOD THINKIN.
here's the full line up:
12:30-2 jersey leggings with fleur
5:30-7:30 slouchy dolman top with moi!
8 PM PARTAAAAAY
again, that's saturday may 3rd. together we shall sew up a warm weather wardrobe and positively FORCE spring to come out of hiding. this vixen is in need of some coaxing. come sweet talk that lass with me!
