Want to have fun designing and sewing projects that are eco-friendly? This course will kick off with a brief introduction to sustainable fashion terminology and inspire you to create upcycled fashion products.
Materials that I incorporated into the pictured projects include: Surplus canvas, Men’s neck ties, Button Down Shirt, Jeans, Belts, Upholstery Samples, etc. View examples of possible projects (pictured), on display in the Portland store.
- Aprons Styles: Utility or Button Down
- Bags Styles: String Pak, Cross Body or Tote
Let Jayne, recently retired high school sewing instructor & Palmer Pletsch Certified, guide you in the design & construction, of your project. Sign up for one or more classes. Make any of the items pictured or something similar. Some sewing experience and familiarity with your machine is necessary. Jayne will email you prior to class to find out your project interest. Kits will be available to purchase and an equipment & supply list will be provided.
