I love to teach, but I haven’t had much time in my schedule for teaching during the last year. It’s time we fixed that, right? I’m going to be coming out of semi-retirement to teach a special one-day-only class at Purl Patchwork in New York next Saturday, May 30 from 9:00AM-noon.
Purl just told me that there are still a few slots left in the class, so if your home base is New York and you’ve always wanted to make a sailboat top or learn to sew from a pattern, please join us.
Here’s the course description from Purl:
Join Liesl at Purl Patchwork in New York for a special one-day only workshop session.
If you’ve never sewn from a pattern before or if want to pick up a few tips to improve your sewing, this workshop is appropriate for you.
The session will focus on teaching you the steps involved in making the Oliver + S Sailboat Top. Liesl will demonstrate how to prepare and cut out the pattern, and then she’ll assemble the top while providing tips to help you improve your sewing. She’ll cover shortening and lengthening a pattern, sewing buttons and buttonholes, setting in a sleeve, and proper pressing techniques.
By the end of the demonstration, you’ll be all ready to make a Sailboat Top or many of the other Oliver + S patterns on your own and will feel more confident in your knowledge of sewing. Basic machine sewing experience is required.
