Sewing with Faux Fur: One day workshop
with Colleen K
This special class will cover the basics of sewing with faux fur. We'll learn about pile, cutting strategies, minimizing the bulk, and finishing. Samples of several kinds of fur will be provided for testing and practice.
We'll have a one-day workshop to cover the details. The first part is all about the fur, and the second half is starting on a holiday stocking with a fur cuff. (With a break in the middle for a quick lunch.) We might only get part of the stocking finished. I'll provide white fur for your cuff; you provide the rest of the materials (1/2 yard of outer fabric and 1/2 yard of lining is usually sufficient).
Class is suitable for ages 13+, although you should already have basic sewing skills. Bring your sewing machine and favorite tools to the first class.
