DESCRIPTION

Please Join us for a free class to learn how to make your very own COSTUME!

This is a 2 day session, each 1.5h long will get your idea to costume ready. This class is for those how know how to sew already or have took our Sewing 101 class.

Please do come 15mins prior to set up your machine, get comfortable, meet a few new sewers and munch on some light snacks and refreshment as we will be starting on time. This will ensure we leave home with a finished COSTUME we can brag, YOU MADE IT!

Students will learn:

First Class

  • Learn how to choose thread, where to buy your materials for your costumes
  • getting your ideas and solidifying how we can make it (note some costumes may not need much sewing)
  • Measure and get started

Second Class

  • Cut, Sew, Glue, Iron....
  • Step by step guide on how to sew your costumes
  • Costumes with more difficulties may need to be finished at home, please be prepared to take notes


All students are not required to have sewing supplies for the class, but we encourage those who have supplies to bring them as we have limited things to share.

  • sewing machine and all accessories
  • seam ripper
  • chalk, marker, pencil
  • scissors
  • snippers
  • pins and pincushion
  • rulers
  • thread



This Class please prepare the following:

  1. Three different costume ideas we can choose from (we will pick one that is suitable to make). Bring lots of photos printed out or on a digital device or sketched out ---NOTE: Must be age appropriate, G
  2. sketchbook, coloring pencils, pencil and eraser
  3. fabric if you have it already

We do not have sewing machines for students, therefore, each student must bring their own machine if they have one or borrow from a family/friend. If you are without a sewing machine and do not know anyone who can lend a machine for the workshop, please contact the organizer to indicate you are in need and we will buddy you with another student or provide you with a machine.


We are excited to start this class so please RSVP to guarantee your spot!



FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, 14+ years.

There is another event called "Make your COSTUME!" being held for kids and beginners

What if I don't know how to sew or use the machine?

This class you must know how to sew or have taken out Sewing 101 class.

There will be future classes for beginners.

What if I don't have time to purchase fabric for the class?

We will offer fabric at a reasonable price, please bring cash. We can not guarantee that it will work for your costume as we have limited colors and types of fabrics.

What if I am only able to come to one of the classes and not the other?

That is okay, we can get you started and you can finish on your own since this is a intermediate class. Please Let organizer know in advance when you sign up.

Can my children come to the event while I learn?

We advise children stay home as we would like everyone to have their hands on machines only. Note, if mothers have infants and are needed for feeding than that is understandable.

There is no childcare provided.

What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking

What can I bring into the event?

All students are not required to have sewing supplies for the classes, but we encourage those who have supplies to bring them as we have limited things to share. Please see list above.

What should I do to prepare?

If you have your machine, please plug your machine in prior and make sure it works. We would not want a surprise if you show up with a hunk of metal.

Arrive on time and bring your smile!
