Time for a new coat? When you live in Minnesota, your coat should be more than something to keep you warm. It is a wardrobe essential that can be fashionable and change with the season. Whether you want to move into winter in a toasty warm wool or be a step ahead for spring in a new trench, why not sew what you want? Learn what to look for in patterns and fabric, when and how to use underlining and interfacing, and which techniques work best for what you have chosen. Please bring pattern or fabric choices you are considering to the first class.
