Does your favorite coat have a torn lining? Or maybe you just want to refresh your wardrobe with a fun pattern or pop of color?
In this two part skillshare sewing workshop you'll learn how to replace the lining in a wool coat.  (No lining - no problem! If you have a coat that doesn't have a lining but you want to add one, we can do that too.)  

  • Session one (2/17 from 11Am-1PM @ St Paul Tool Library ) will focus on deconstruction, material selection, and pattern making; as you learn to properly remove the old lining and piece your pattern.
  • Class participants will then have 2 weeks to acquire fabric (approx. 3-4 yards ) and prepare their pattern pieces.
  • Session Two (2/24 from 11AM-4PM @ John's Pizza Cafe) is dedicated to sewing the lining pieces together and then attaching it to your coat.

This is an intermediary class. Participants should have some basic sewing experience. ˆ(Want to learn? Take our sewing Basics class on 2/3!) All students are asked to bring a seam ripper and sharp scissors to class. Sewing machines will be provided from the MN Tool Library inventory, but participants are welcome to bring a personal machine if they prefer.

The second session of this class is being held at John's Pizza Cafe. Participants are welcome to enjoy food/beverages during/after class if they so desire.
