I am so very excited to announce I’ll be teaching a new class at Stitch Lab, Kids Capes & Masks! It’s been great fun putting this project together, and I’ve wanted to work with Leslie and the other wonderful folks there for a long while.

Kid Masks and Capes class at Stitch Lab (PDF), Mon 8/6/2012 8:30 am – 12:00 pm and Thu 8/9/2012 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
“Students will make a super hero or princess cape and mask for hours of creative play time crusading and make believing! (4 or 5 students per class , One (1) 3.5-hour class)
Prerequisite: Kids Intro to Machine Sewing, Kids Sew Fun Camp, or equivalent experience. Ages 7 through 10 welcome!”

I’m also teaching Kids Tote Bags Weds 8/8/2012 and Fri 8/10/2012 8:30 am – 12:00 pm.
“Students will make a lined, reversible tote bag with a pocket! You’ll feel like a rock star carrying your very own bag, made by YOU in the fabrics of your choosing! (4 or 5 students per class , One (1) 3.5-hour class) All materials provided in class!!”

I think the Mask and Cape class would be great for adults too, especially closer to Halloween. If you’re (and some friends!) interested, please let me or Stitch Lab know.


I took a millinery class a while back with Laura Del Villaggio and made a fascinator (little cocktail hat/headpiece) incorporating the tiny collection of feathers passed to me by my grandmother and mother. Laura is very knowledgeable about millinery history, materials and construction and made the sinemay hat bases we used in class. Here is a photo of mine in progress, before stitching…

My project in the pinning stage

Put it on your calendar, Laura will be teaching this class again October 20th (in time for costume and dress-up holiday parties!), as well as a top hat class the same week (more info here, use ‘search by instructor’ pulldown > Laura.) I’d love to take the class myself, the samples I’ve seen are great.
