Make Your Own Leggings Sewing Workshop

Melody WangComment

We're getting excited for our Sewing Workshop on Thursday, March 24th, where we will leave class having created our very own pair of leggings to add to our wardrobe. We went to the fabric store a few weeks ago and selected quite an assortment to choose from (see picture below), so you'll be able to choose whichever most represents your personal style! Even better, the skills learned in this class can translate further to all sorts of other sewing knit projects, like skirts and dresses! *Note: This workshop is now SOLD OUT, but sign up for our mailing list and you'll be the first to hear about the next one! Check out our events page to see all of our future workshops!

Our instructor, Rebecca Saylorhas taught many past gather workshops and owns her own business, Oodlebadoodle, where she creates adorable San Francisco themed plushies with whimsical fabric patterns. She will provide the knowledge for you to go home and create endless pairs of leggings with all the fun knit fabrics you can find!

During this workshop, we'll learn the following skills: 

  • Cut a pattern
  • Sew with stretchy knits
  • How to add an elastic waist band
  • How to create a hem

For this workshop, we'll be provided with the following:

  • All fabric and materials
  • Sewing Machines (although feel free to bring your own if you have one!)
  • Wine and snacks  (for the perfect night out! )

Sewing Workshop: Leggings - Thursday March 24th 2016 - 7:00pm-9:00pm: $50
*Note: Beginner craft class for adults 18+. No previous sewing experience required.
