Our February newsletter is now available – check it out for all the latest guild happenings!
Ever thought about garment sewing? Ever wonder what all those different types of fabrics are about or why a pattern designer recommends certain fabrics for a pattern? Rayon? Lawn? Double Gauze?
We’ll be holding Garment 101 after our February meeting on to talk about garment sewing and how to dip your feet into that area of sewing. We’ll be discussing different types of fabric, tools, and general information about garment sewing.
If you’re signed up or thinking about signing up for the Scout Tee class in March, this is the perfect introduction to some of the things we will be covering in that class.
We will be having a Scout Tee class, led by guild member Kristyn Jansen on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The class will be held at Quilt in a Day from 9:30am-3:30pm. The cost of this class is $25 and lunch is not included.
The Scout is a woven t-shirt with capped sleeves and scoop neck. Fitted at the shoulders, this top falls into a loose shape below the bust.
This class will teach you foundational elements of garment sewing such as reading a garment pattern and selecting the correct size, setting in a sleeve, hemming, and bias binding.
- Scout Tee pattern – either in an assembled PDF or paper pattern
- Light to medium light weight fabrics such as cotton, silk, lawn, voile, charmeuse, crepe de chine or wool crepe. Extra fabric needed to match plaids, stripes or one-way design fabrics.
- You will need between 1 2/3 and 1 7/8 yards depending on your size – see the size chart here for more information
- Coordinating thread
- Sewing Machine
- Fabric Scissors or Rotary Cutter
- Pins or Clips
- Seam Gauge
- Marking Tool or Pen
At this time, we are accepting registration from dues-paying SDMQG members. If there are still spots available, we will open the class up to the entire quilting community.
