Teaching a sewing class


Custom pet jacket sewing class

There are many things I'm enthusiastic about in the new year, and near the top of the list is teaching. I've always loved learning, and now I get to share with others that awesome feeling of learning something new.

My first class is a two-part workshop where students will learn how to design a one-of-a-kind jacket for their pet from scratch. In the first session, we'll walk through drafting the jacket pattern step by step, and each student will leave with a complete pattern to test fit on their pet and measure for their fabric selections. This is where to get creative -- some ideas include an upcycled tweed jacket (my favorite), pieced fabric scraps, or an old flannel shirt. In the second session, we'll sew the jackets together and finish with snaps.
