With Lorna McKillip & Angela Gladwin
THURSDAY, MARCH 22 6-8pm shopping
SATURDAY, MARCH 24 10am-4pm sewing

This class is an introduction to refashioning clothing, using pieces purchased on the shopping trip to Value Village (Bayers Lake location) or pieces from your own closet (your husband’s, your kids – whatever). You will need to bring a measuring tape and know your own basic measurements. The shopping trip is to help you find useful materials, understand what the possibilities may be for refashioning a piece or several pieces of clothing and/or other textiles into a garment. We will talk about where to find raw materials, what you can do with them and help you start to visualize various ways of combining them. This shopping trip is optional and set a couple of days ahead of time so that you will have time to launder and iron the items and perhaps even do some preliminary work on them if you know what you want to do on the sewing day. You may decide to just bring some items you already own as your raw material and that is okay as well. Our sewing day will be when you create your unique garment, with the help and advice of two people who have some experience with this type of sewing and creating! Prior to our shopping trip, we will provide you with some references to look at which may help develop ideas as to what you would like to accomplish. We hope you will enjoy this opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind garment for yourself that you will be proud to wear!

  1. I eagerly look forward to taking a pattern alterations course. So, here’s hoping there will be several long ones in the near future!

    1. I’ve forwarded your message and email to Josee in case she doesn’t get this in time. I gave her the option of replying directly to you and/or posting here for others also to see.

  2. From Josee…

    Hi Beverly,

    The only thing you need to bring is a small pair of scissors, sewing pins, and something to take notes with. I’m providing everything else. And yes, we start at 9:00.

  3. Vickie: Great job in pulling together so many teachers & interesting classes! Looking forward to that wonderful roster!

  4. Are there any classes coming up? I’m disappointed that i missed the one on Re-fashioning. I guess I should check this site more often.

    1. Hi Angela!
      Thank you very much for your interest in the Atlantic Sewing Guild. We have one more booked for the rest of this season (2017-18) at the moment, & plan for many more interesting sessions in future.
      Our classes are currently for members only, but becoming a member is easy – just show up at one of our Tuesday evening meetings (which location will change in September). Your first meeting is free & we always welcome new faces.
