    Have you longed to make a classic, Oxford-style button-down-collar shirt for that special someone but didn’t know where to start? Start here! If you can sew a straight line, you can sew a classic shirt with all the fixin's!

    In this course, you will learn how to make knife-sharp collar points and tidy collar bands, how to match prints across center front, topstitch the yoke, attach two-piece sleeve plackets, sew cuffs that look great inside and out, and make easy flat-felled seams and rolled, curved hems. You'll discover the best interfacing for shirt sewing, efficient layout and cutting, notable notions, sewing fundamentals, how to "chunk it up" for speedy sewing order of operations, and how to choose specialty sewing feet (and know whether you need them) . . . and more!

    Leah will demonstrate each part of making an entire shirt over three, 2-hour Zoom sessions. Sew along with her, or just sit back, relax, and learn. You'll have plenty of time to ask questions and watch each technique. And at the end of class you’ll have LOTS of resources: access to the recorded class plus individual, step-by-step video tutorials on Leah’s Away We Sew website, plus pdf handouts with professional, full color illustrations (a $30 value). You'll have skills to sew any kind of shirt, and you'll be confident that you can sew a classic, Oxford-style button-down-collar shirt IN A WEEKEND!

    Supplies: 

    Choose one of these shirt patterns for the class:

    • FreeSewing.org: “Simon" (men's styling) or "Simone" (women's styling)—available free online as a pdf (highly recommended!)
    • Liesl Pattern Co.: “The Classic Shirt"  (women's styling)—available on paper at Esther's Fabrics on Bainbridge Island
    • Thread Theory: “Fairfield Button Down" (men's styling)—available on paper at Esther's

    You'll also need fabric, thread, buttons, and interfacing as needed for your size, as noted on the pattern. Leah recommends ProWOVEN Shirt-Crisp interfacing from Fashion Sewing Supply but any lightweight or shirt-weight interfacing you find in a fabric store or online will work. 

    If you're planning to join along, set up your Zoom in your cutting space and have your fabric laundered and both your interfacing and fabric ready to cut!

    Note: If you go into Esther's Fabrics store, mention that you're buying supplies for this class when you check out at our partner, Esther's Fabrics, at 181 Winslow Way East, Suite D on Bainbridge Island and you'll receive a 10% discount! Esther's Fabrics has the Liesl and Thread Theory patterns in stock, plus many beautiful shirting fabrics, quilting cottons, rayons, flannels, and an excellent selection of specialty shirt buttons!

    More about the instructor Jane Stafford:

    Jane began weaving at the age of 21, purchasing a new Fanny with the help of a chattel mortgage on her Chevette. Before two years were up she was accepted as an under-qualified, but very ambitious student at the Baniff School of Fine Arts. Two years later she was a teacher’s assistant there and, in a few more, an instructor herself.  In subsequent years, Jane has had the great fortune to be able to earn a living doing what she loves most, weaving, and sharing her passion for excellence in cloth. Jane has been both a production weaver and a workshop instructor, helping students reach their potential across the continent, for over 25 years. She was the recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2014 from Handwoven Magazine. Jane now teaches exclusively in her studio on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

    If you are looking for a new way to create interesting fabric with your yarn, this class will certainly interest you. While making a lovely scarf, you will learn about weaving terminology, setting up the loom, and how to insert weft yarn to make an interesting cloth. Weaving is a great way to use your yarns in a new way that is relaxing, enjoyable, fun and fast.

    The class is divided into two sessions: 10 am - 12 pm, (2 hour break), 2 pm - 4 pm

    Homework: Prepare the space where you will be working. You will need a clear area that is 72” - 80” long. This space does not have to be on a tabletop, you can stretch over an open space, but need to attach the loom and clamps to a solid surface at either end. If it is possible for your area to be counter height, your back will thank you!  All your yarn and supplies should be close at hand

    Supplies to have at home: Rigid heddle loom with at least 8“ weaving width, clamps, warping peg, 7.5 or 8 dent reed, sley/threading hook,  shuttle, scissors, tapestry needle, tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, measuring tape, post it notes, 300 yards smooth, strong, non-hairy, and at least 2 ply yarn that is preferably variegated colors.  Yarn should be wound into balls before class.

    A limited number of looms are available for members to borrow for this class, but must be picked up in person. For more information, contact fiber.programming@bainbridgebarn.org

    Begin your embroidery journey with a summer camp class! While making a couple of simple samples with brightly colored yarn and blunt needles on stiff fabric, you’ll learn 6 basic embroidery stitches that you can use for almost any future embroidery project:

    • straight stitch
    • outline stitch
    • daisy stitch
    • chain stitch
    • satin stitch
    • French knots

    Along the way, you’ll learn how to thread your needle and prepare yarn and fabric for a project. After some practice on samples that you can turn into iron-on patches for a bag, jacket, of notebook cover, you’ll embroider a little picture you can display in a frame.

    Then when you’re at home, set your inner artist free and create your own new designs with the stitches you’ve learned! Plus, you’ll take with you a couple of pieces of fabric, a couple of needles, and some yarn to stitch your creations!

With every project you make, you have ideas for the next project and the one after that. There’s always a new technique to try or a new design to work out!”

    Re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose—that's the theme of this class! You will start with re-purposing a pair of jeans: get your scissors out, save the pocket and pants legs, and invent your own tote bag! 


    You will learn basic sewing machine skills on BARN's sewing machines in the process, and you'll get ideas for using hand-stitching and other techniques, too. From there, we will share other examples of up-cycling fashion from thrift stores or your own wardrobe, allowing you to design your own projects. BARN Fiber artists will be there to mentor you along your way.

    By twisting or wrapping your warp yarns you can weave distinctive textures and patterns in your cloth.  Learn to weave lace-like open areas as parts of a design throughout the fabric or as a notable edge treatment.  Discover how to make leno and then master the art of adding beads to the patterns.  See how beads can make the weaving pop!  If you’ve ben looking for ways to add more interest to your weaving, these techniques will get  you there. You too can create cloth that is visually stunning.

    Class Level: Advanced Beginner

    Homework: Warp the loom prior to class with 48 ends (24 slots, 24 eyes), 84” long, in a 7.5 or 8 dent reed with worsted weight yarn that is non-hairy, strong, and at least 2 ply. Thread the loom so the extreme right thread is to the right of the slot (for RHLs). Spread the warp threads with waste yarn and weave 2” in plain weave, leaving a tail 4 x the width of the warp hanging out the side of your dominate hand.

    The class session is divided into two sessions: 10 am -  12 pm, (2 hour break), 2 pm - 4 pm for a total of 4 hours of on-line instruction.

    Supplies needed at home: 

    350 - 400 yards of solid color worsted weight yarn that is at least 2 ply, non-hairy, strong and smooth (this includes your warp yarn), loop shaped dental floss threader, about 200 beads that will fit on your yarn doubled (I used 6/0 glass beads), scissors, tapestry needle, cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, pick up stick, strip of cardboard that is 1” - 1.5” x 10”, shuttle.

    Treat yourself to a weekend of weaving! Join your fellow weavers for a three-day retreat where we blast through a project, start to finish. Enjoy sharing with your fellow weavers your project and marvel at the variety of projects warped and ready to weave.

    This is how it works, you reserve a loom (or bring your own), bring your own project to work on, and weave… all types of weaving are welcome.

    We hope to add in some evening adventures, so stay tuned for the entire itinerary.

    NOTE: to reserve a loom, contact:. ccamp@bainbridgebarn.org 

    Details:

    1. This retreat is for those weavers that are experienced in setting up a loom and have the ability to do a self guided project.
    2. On Thursday, September 16th you can come into the Fiber Studio to warp the beginning of your project.
