Hand Stitching & Embellishment Workshop with Karen LePage on Thursday, January 26th

48.00

Join us on Thursday, January 26th from 6-8PM

Spend a couple hours in a cozy environment and good company while you embellish a fair-trade, reusable tote and learn techniques that will be useful for every kind of hand stitching. In this workshop you will learn simple stitches that highlight beautiful materials like cotton jersey, hand-dyed wool, and organic cotton fabrics. 

You will also see examples of these same stitches used as visible mending, an on-trend embellishment style and repurposing technique that can bring new life to your favorite almost worn-out garments or bags.  

Karen LePage is a garment designer and pattern writer/illustrator. She co-hosts Sew Ann Arbor, designs sewing patterns for herself and others, consults on getting sewing patterns to market, teaches sewing classes, gets other designers started using Adobe Creative Cloud (beyond fumbling around in Photoshop) and volunteers in the Ann Arbor and Detroit crafty communities. In addition, she makes bespoke garments for people who are sensitive, hard-to-fit, or just too individual for clothing off the rack.

Karen is the Founder of Gentle Clothing, launching in Fall/Winter 2017 offering handmade garments and sewing patterns to cultivate a wardrobe of clothes worth mending.

Karen is a true collaborator, working on patterns for Monaluna, Made by Rae, Simple Simon and Co., and Alison Glass Designs, as well as for other designers. She was regularly featured in Stitch Magazine, and teaches classes on CraftDaily.com. Her first book, Sewing for Boys, was released in 2011, and her second and third books were released in Spring of 2016: Alison Glass Sew Woven Essentials and Alison Glass Sew Knit Essentials.

Karen’s teaching style is compassionate and encouraging, bringing kindness to otherwise intimidating concepts.
