a visit to tamar mogendorff”s studio feels very dreamlike and magical… there are piles of fish, sea horses and birds, whales hanging in antique fishing nets, a wall of bird houses, and piles of fabric… i loved visiting her workspace and photographing her project for lines & shapes, volume eight. tamar gave me such a special present– one of her bird cages, which i’ve been admiring for years (bottom two photos). see more from tamar here and here.

JULY sewing class with cal patch!

this one-day workshop will take you through the steps of built by wendy pattern
#3692, and you will have a completed garment by the end of the day. these classes are a lot of fun… and it’s so satisfying to have a dress to wear by the end of the day. vegetarian lunch included.

the top photos is from curiousbird, and the bottom image shows the various options with this pattern.
try to email me right away if you would like to sign up— spots are limited. and feel free to write me with any questions.

intermediate level, no clothing/pattern experience necessary

one 5-hour workshop
11am – 4pm
saturday, july 18th
$125 + supplies

cal patch will be in town briefly and i’m very happy that she has time to teach this class! if you know how to use a sewing machine, but following a pattern on your own is intimidating— then this class is perfect. or if you just enjoy the structure of a class and sewing with others! we will be using the simplicity 3692 built by wendy pattern. students must arrive at class with pieces already cut out and marked, as this can take up to 2 hours and it will be otherwise impossible to finish the project in the allotted time. you will need to bring your own sewing machine to class. if you can’t, you can email me and I will try to arrange to borrow one for you.

* * ALSO, spots are still available in the jewelry making and screen printing t-shirts classes!
