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 spring in a new trench or be a step ahead for next winter in a toasty warm wool, 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. Students will have the opportunity to choose pattern and fabric with Michele’s help before the first class so that you can hit the ground running the first day.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Fee: $195

Instructor: Michele Hoaglund

Saturdays 10:00 – 5:00 (with 1-hour lunch break) February 22, 29, March 7


Is there a classic shirt on your list of projects? The Granville Shirt from Sewaholic Patterns (pear shapes) or Harrison from Cashmerette (more curvy, full bust) have front bust dart (princess seams for Harrison), back yoke and back princess seams for optimal fitting options.  Try it out of stretch cotton if you are looking for something more comfy. Great pattern instructions and drafting for collar, stand and cuffs.  
This is a sew along so while there will be fitting help, we will focus on collar, cuff and placket techniques to be sure the shirt is completed.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Fee: $70

Instructors: Material Girls Debbie & Kristin

Tuesdays 1:30 – 3:30 March 3, 10, 17
