Learn about the design process, reading patterns, cutting fabric from paper patterns, garment construction and finishing skills. We also encourage experimenting with re-styling existing clothing as it can be a great way to learn more about clothing, while re-working clothing that is longer being worn!
We also cover finishing techniques including hemming, zippers, button holes and working with elastics.
We have patterns to make just about anything here, but if you have a special pattern in mind, you are welcome to bring it along.
Skill requirements: Clothes Club is geared towards ages 12-18 who have either been to Fashion Camp, taken private lessons, aged out of Make Club and/or practice machine sewing regularly at home.
Material requirements: Use of sewing equipment and patterns are included in the cost, however you will need to purchase the main fabrics for your clothing projects. We do sometimes receive donations of fabric from local sewists, which we offer up to student's from time to time, helping to keep costs down. If material costs are a barrier to joining this program, please let us know as we can always source within our amazing fabric community.
We offer a 20% student discount on all your supplies or tools purchased in preparation for or on the day of your class!
Equipment requirements: We highly encourage you to bring your own sewing machine, however if you don't own a machine, one will be provided for you. If you’d like to bring your home machine, please remember to bring the manual (and foot pedal/power cord).
Snacks & Refreshments: We encourage you to send snacks and refreshments as it’s much easier to be creative when you have fuel for the brain!
