Back-to-school Sewing Class with Rae and Karen

I’m teaching a class at Blue House in Ann Arbor starting September 12 called Handmade Kids’ Back To School Wardrobe with my friend Karen of One Girl Circus (whose book “Sewing for Boys” is coming out VERY VERY SOON!). We thought it would be really cool to do an intensive class over five weeks where we show how to put together a five-piece wardrobe using both of our patterns!

We’re teaching it together so that means we can offer as much one-on-one instruction as possible and it’s going to be really fun because the two of us always have a hoot. So if no one takes this class we are just going to sew together for five weeks and it will still be so much fun. But it would be even more fun if you could join us, right? So sign up now or tell a friend or significant other (this could be an awesome birthday gift or early-Christmas gift!). The contact info is on the image above (click to enlarge).

  1. Ugh! This sounds SO cool! I’m from the thumb region of MI and would totally have made the trek to take your classes (so original and cool). BUT…of course, I live in NY now! Blah! πŸ™

  2. Wish I was closer and could attend….received the Sewing Book for Boys Tuesday and I have been drooling over it. Can’t wait to get sewing!

  3. I would love to attend – but I live in New Mexico…. Guess that’s not going to work. If you ever decide to make this a tutorial, or an online class, I’d love to attend!

    • Hi Karina:
      In order to complete the five items we’re hoping to in the time we have, some experience with the sewing machine is necessary (must know how to thread your machine, sew forward and backward), but you don’t need a ton of experience to take the class. It’s definitely not advanced. Some experience sewing simple things like pillows or curtains is recommended. Hope that helps! We’d love to have you join us!!! πŸ™‚

  4. I would love to be taught by you Rae, unfortunately the commute from Canada would be too much, I don’t think Mr. would approve. Lucky Ann Arbor folks!

  5. Congrats! What a fun thing to do. Wish I lived closer, and I’d be there! Good luck, I’m sure you’ll have so many sign-up that you’ll start to turn them away. Fabulous!

  6. I was practically ready to part with my cash until I realised this IS NOT an online course πŸ™
    I’m in the UK!

    • Aw shucks Georgie, sorry about that! Well if we ever decide to offer an online version we’ll be sure to let you know! πŸ™‚
