Green Sewing: Old Threads to New Threads

Since cloth makes up a large portion of our landfill, we will explore a variety of useful and fun tips to repurpose, recreate and reuse some of this cloth into useful and decorative items. A garment made out of a beautiful fabric, can be transformed into new fashion or home decor. Such as, a new top or vest out of a skirt or a pair of pants. Place mats can become a stylish bag; old sweaters make great pot holders; baby socks stuffed with catnip makes a fun cat toy, etc.

Instructor will supply some patterns and supplies. You bring to class something you can’t throw away and we’ll get creative. You will leave class with loads of ideas and some unique items. All levels are welcome but a basic knowledge of sewing is helpful.

Bring your sewing machine, scissors, pins, seam ripper, tape measure and marking chalk.

Class fee: $75

Dates: TBD
