Sewing classes for the beginner to the advanced stitcher!
Devore (aka, fabric etching)
Saturday, April 19, 2-5 pm, $74 (includes Fiber Etch kit)+ supplies
This centuries old French technique is used by many top designers for fabulous looks. We will use a product called Fiber Etch which will remove only plant fibers (cotton, linen, rayon, ramie and hemp) but will not remove synthetic or protein based fibers. The fibers left behind in fabric blends create wonderful sheer areas. We'll experiment with different fibers/fabrics and try the fiber etch with a variety of tools (stencils, stamps, brushes). The obvious fabric is silk velvet, but also think about wool combinations, cotton/polyester or rayon/polyester combinations. Come ready to have fun and experiment!
