Balmain Buttonholes with Kenneth D. King – Join us on Zoom this winter to learn all about sourcing materials for, creating, and finishing Balmain buttonholes. This buttonhole is a form of bound buttonhole which extends to the edge of the garment and was used by French couturier Pierre Balmain in the 1960s. Professor King will share his techniques for turning out this couture finish professionally every time. He wrote about the technique in a recent issue of Threads magazine. Here’s your chance to learn how to do it directly from him! More info. Book now.
Liz Haywood’s Zero Waste On Demand Class – Delve into the legacy of zero waste garments. We are now offering an on-demand version of our popular virtual class, “Zero Waste Legacy Sewing.” Join Liz Haywood as we take a look at three historic zero waste sewing patterns, and learn how you can use them today to make comfortable, beautiful garments. All three make good beginnings for developing new zero waste patterns sized for your measurements. We’ll be examining the bog coat (Bronze Age Western Europe), the Eura dress (Viking era Finland) and a Square Cut Men’s Shirt (Regency era England). More info. Book now.
