Local clothing-maker & pattern-maker extraordinaire Cal Patch
has another sewing workshop series at RosenSpace this month, just in time for those warmer Spring days: Learn how to design and make your own skirt!
This class is a great fit for those who already have a few simple projects under their belt and are comfortable with their sewing machine.
Make Your Own Skirt
Thursdays: May 25, June 1, (skips 6/8), 15 + 22 (6-8 pm)

In this 4-week class, you will learn how to draft a pattern for an A-line skirt, based on your very own measurements. Then you will cut it out and sew it up!
