The Eliot School in Jamaica Plain, MA has asked me back again this year to teach a really fun class - Making Old Coats New.
In this 5 week class, students will bring in a coat or jacket from their closet or a vintage find, and learn how to take it apart, reshape and restyle, and then reassemble it to create a fresh, new style for the season.
If you have any interest in learning some basic tailoring, repair, and design, this is definitely the class for you! Basic sewing skills and experience with a sewing machine are required, but no design or tailoring experience is necessary.
Class runs from October 24th through Nov. 21st. You can get more information and sign up now at the Making Old Coats New class page or visiting EliotSchool.org.
