Let's Make an Umbrella! (class suitable for ages 14 thru adult, must have machine sewing experience)
This umbrella is suitable for "Second Line" use, or for a rainstorm!
In this class you will learn to piece together panels to make your own unique umbrella! Make your beautiful umbrella with your favorite cotton print (we will waterproof it for you), laminated cotton, or water proof fabric of your choosing. Frames for adults (48" automatic frame) or children. You may bring your own fabric (natural fabrics ONLY*), or use some of our cottons (1.5 yards.) If you choose a one-way design fabric (as in photo number 3 below), or if you choose a cotton laminate, you may need to purchase additional fabric so that your design can be placed like you want it. Whatever your fabric purchase, you receive a 15% class discount for your fabric purchase.
*If you choose to bring your own fabric, make sure it is plain cotton, cotton canvas or cotton poplin. Oilcloth or upholstery fabrics are not suitable.
$35, includes umbrella frame, thread, use of our sewing machine (or bring your own); we will also furnish waterproofing, pattern and instruction. You will complete about half of your project in the workshop and be able to complete your project at home with some simple hand stitching.
