Fall Sewing Retreat
Valley Junction Activity Center
217 5th St. West Des Moines IA 50265
October 14-16, 2022
Three days (and nights, if you want!) of sewing, food, fun and fashion! As an optional add-on to the retreat, Denise will be leading a class on sewing leggings! Learn about suitable patterns and fabrics for workout wear, fitting a pattern with negative ease, athletic wear knits, cutting with a rotary cutter, sewing on lycra blend fabrics, flatlock stitch, coverstitch and more. Sergers will be available for use in the class. You'll make (and finish) one pair of leggings. Kits for the leggings class will be $25. Contact Denise by Sept. 15 if you plan to take the class so fabric and materials can be ordered.
