Transform your favorite worn sweater into a pair of wearable mittens! This class will cover the basics of using a sewing machine and working with a pattern to make a polished pair of fleece or flannel-lined cozy mittens. Participants are welcome to use their own vintage sweaters to use for this project (this project requires 1 sweater), or they may choose from a variety provided by Perennial (choose upon pickup). You’ll also receive a pattern to make an optional matching hat from the same sweater, which you can complete outside of class.
Participants should have basic knowledge of how to use a sewing machine or have taken Perennial’s Sewing Machine Basics workshop.
This is a live virtual class that will be conducted via Zoom, and participants will receive information about how to participate by email prior to the class. You will be able to pickup a kit of supplies containing a sweater, fleece or flannel, pins, thread, and a pattern on Thursday, January 14, 11a-5pm, or email email@example.com to arrange a different time. You must have a sewing machine in working order setup at home, and you will need scissors and an iron as well.
