Class Description:Find a use for those jeans that are no longer mendable! We'll be making use of the denim by creating yardage that can be used for many projects - a bag, a skirt, a pillow. Not your typical 70's refashion, the results are boutique-worthy.
Student supply list:
3 or 4 pair of jeans or other equivalent denim pieces that are similar in weight and complement each other in color,
thread for topstitching,
a serger if you have one in good working order (there are sergers in our shop for your use as well)
Number of hours for class: 4 hours
Class Level: Fascination – These classes will introduce you to a new skill, concept or technique and are open to all levels. The student may, however, be required to have a basic skill or have taken a certification class. For example, for a flat-pattern drafting class one need not know anything about flat-pattern drafting but should have a basic understanding of the sewing machine. Any prerequisites will be listed in the class description.

Why I sew: When I think of all the reasons I sew – saving money, getting a good fit, not being limited to what’s in the store, being conscious of how my clothing is produced – the reason above all is that I can be unique. I know that when I choose my own pattern and pair it with a fabric, I will be creating a garment that no one else has. I can also create home goods that are as individual as I am. In a day and age where uniformity is difficult to avoid, creating my own sewn garments is a way to express my voice.
