I am reposting this information for those of you who are taking my classes at the quilt show next week. There might still be a slot available in the MAKE YOUR OWN HAT PATTERNS! class, but I’m not sure since teachers don’t get a full roster until the day of the class. On-site class registration starts on Sunday, October 30th I believe. Email me or post a reply if you have any questions.
Wednesday, November 2nd: MAKE A MINI MAD-HATTER TOPPER! (Class# 336)
Step into Alice’s Wonderland to make a real showstopper! Make and trim a small-scale top hat using proper millinery techniques. The skills learned in this class can be translated into a full size hat. Knowledge of basic hand stitches is helpful. Millinery supplies will be provided.
Sewing thread to match fabric, Thimble, Pins, Fabric scissors, Paper scissors, Paper and pencil to take notes, 1 yd 45 inch wide suiting or bottom weight fabric or thick cotton such as pique.
Anyone who might be worried about taking their hat home on an airplane: I am offering to ship your hats to you for $10.00, 20.00 for international. To keep this cost down, I will not be able to send anything else except your hat.
Friday, November 4th: MAKE YOUR OWN HAT PATTERNS! (Class# 527)
Learn to draft patterns for a variety of hat shapes and styles. This class is a great introduction into the skill of patternmaking. Focus on three basic crown types, a basic brim and an easily adaptable visor. Construction and trimming will be discussed.
Paper scissors, Compass (plastic or metal, get the school kind, not drafting calipers), Scotch Tape (one roll), 18” View-thru ruler (see picture). It’s not mentioned in the class catalog, but if you have a tape measure, bring it. If not, I’ll have a few available to use in class. Pencils, drafting paper and oak tag will be provided for you
Please feel free to leave a comment to this post if you have any questions about either class.
To avoid confusion, below are pictures of some of the supplies you’ll need.
