sewing classes at Home Ec

Two new workshops have been added to the ever-changing schedule of sewing classes that we offer at our studio, Home Ec. Take a look:

How to Sew a T-Shirt Workshop
(Taught by Cal Patch)
$50 plus materials
One day only! Sunday, June 14th from 11am - 2pm

Has the thought of sewing knits always intimidated you? Do you think you needed a serger to sew with stretch? Cal will show you that it's easier than you think to make your own knit tops, including several options for finishing necklines.

Skirt Patternmaking Workshop
(Taught by Cal Patch)
$50 plus materials
One day only! Wednesday, June 10th from 6:30 - 8:30pm

This introductory lesson in basic flat pattern techniques will give you the basic skills to draft patterns to fit any body! We will take measurements and make a simple skirt pattern with darts, which can be customized in all sorts of ways to suit your personal style.

Cal Patch is a designer, teacher and the creator of "Hodge Podge Farm", a handmade one-off clothing and accessories line. She is also the author of "Design-it-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified", an instructional book on pattern drafting, due out in September of 2009.

You can sign up for these, or any of our classes, through our website or by calling us at 718.852.2889. Home Ec is located at 303 3rd Avenue, between Carroll & 1st Streets in Brooklyn.
