June Classes! Sign Up Now!

School's not out at Treadle! It's your time to learn something fun and new!



Use your favorite tee pattern to make the quintessential summer cover up (hello, sleeveless dresses and tops!) Our one session class should get you pretty close to a finished garment-especially if your knit lends itself to unfinished edges.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Fee: $40
Instructors: Material Girls Debbie & Kristin

Tuesday 1:00 – 4:00 June 11



Looking for a perfect fit? Let's make pants that fit like they were made for you. We will draft a sloper based on each student's individual measurements using a system created at the American Fashion Institute and cut a muslin the first session. You will assemble the muslin and bring it along to session two. We will work together to fit each muslin and demonstrate how to use your sloper to adjust commercial patterns. Students should have sewing experience and understanding of garment construction. Suggested prerequisite: Make It Fit or experience with pattern alteration.

Skill Level: Intermediate
Fee: $125
Instructor: Michele Hoaglund

Sew your next costume, cosplay, reenactment garb, or vintage wear! Choose your project: corsets, dresses, suits, outerwear, or a complete ensemble, from your favorite time period: Renaissance, Jane Austen, Victorian, or 20th century vintage style. Go all out with handsewn historic accuracy, or just make a fun costume! We’ll cover fitting, research, and the best historical sewing techniques to create your vision.
