Sewing classes on the calendar at Ginger Root Design

Erin with a customer
I have chosen to resurrect QL to give you this breaking news: more sewing classes added at Ginger Root Design.  All the hot deets, below:

Beginning Sewing   
Wed 11-17, Tues 11-23, or Thurs 12-2         
7:30pm-9:30pm          $40

The ultimate class for those just starting out, or needing a refresher since those home ec classes in junior high. This course offers all the basics of hand sewing: how to begin and finish seams securely, 4 different stitches, attaching buttons (both tailored shirt and winter jackets), and affixing other closures. A great class for those who want to tackle a variety of wardrobe woes.

NEW!!   Sweater Deconstruction  
Tues11-30 or Mon12-6        
7:30-9:00 pm                 $35

Beat the winter chill (and perhaps a jump on holiday presents!) with our Sweater Deconstruction Class.  We show you how to turn an unflattering, pilling, or shrunken sweater into a slouchy winter hat.  Perfect for keeping out the cold, this hat is a great way to go green this holiday season.  If you are feeling ambitious to make 2 hats from your sweater, and are in the spirit of giving to someone in need, we will be collecting extra hats made by our students to donate to a local charity.  NOTE: This class requires a sweater to cut up and repurpose.  No machine necessary.

Get on this, my children. Sewing will save your closet.
