This class will focus on seaming, buttonholes, and weaving in those pesky tails. If you've avoided making seamed garments, this class just might nudge you to try one. Generally, seamed garments provide a better fit than seamless. You can get a more tailored look and can make more adjustments. As seamed garments are worked in pieces, mistakes are generally less traumatic to fix. Seams also provide structure, thus a seamed garment is less likely to stretch or sag over time. The cost of this class is $30. Call the shop to register and get the homework assignment. Class size is limited to five students.
Reah Janise Kauffman is the instructor for all of these classes.
