#500 Julie Benac – Sewing for Fiber Artists       Full day Sunday 9am-4pm   Bldg 10 Center  $100

Skill level: Intermediate.  Students should know the basic workings of their machine: threading upper thread and bobbin, basic seam-sewing, presser feet, etc.

Workshop Description:  Pull that sewing machine out of the closet and learn fun, unique ways to use your handspun yarns in all sorts of clothing and home projects. We’ll learn different ways to use that sewing machine, such as free-motion work, as well as using specialty presser feet. Did you know you can create fabric with your handspun art yarn without weaving or knitting? We’ll also explore various methods of seaming handwoven fabrics and other methods unique to sewing handwoven items. By the end of class, students will have a book of samples for later reference. Join in this exciting workshop and learn to enhance your (already beautiful!) fiber art with your sewing machine!

Students should bring:  Portable sewing machine in good working order and all accessories; handspun/art yarns in different weights and thicknesses; and matching, all-purpose poly sewing thread (Gutterman, Metrosene, Coat's & Clark, etc). Optional: Handwoven fabric (ideally, bring a hand-woven project that must be sewn together - and we'll do it together!) and commercial fabric scraps (larger). Students might also prefer to bring their own seating for a more comfortable day!

*It is also very helpful if you are able to bring along a good-quality extension cord*

Homework:  None.

Material fee: $15 covers yarn and fabric samples, embroidery hoop, as well as the silk bias strips that we will be using for some techniques.

Class Limit: 12
