New Class: Sewing Children’s Clothes


Woot woot! Great kids’ fabric at Treadle, just in time for our new Sewing for Kids class. The fabric is from Art Gallery.
We’ll be at Joann Fabrics in Edina Thursday (tomorrow) morning from 9:30-12:30 and in the evening from 6-8 pm. The same class will be held at Treadle Yard Goods on Tuesday, January 30 from 1-4 pm.

The fabric pictured above will also be available for the Joann class as I have some in my possession and will be prewashing it tonight.

Our January class will focus on a raglan sleeve knit top with bands and skinny pants also with bands. Think Hanna Andersson pj’s but the patterns themselves are versatile enough for t-shirts, leggings and sweatpants. The goal of the class is to showcase patterns and techniques that make the pattern quick to sew and cut out along with the fit that you get with ready to wear. We recommend Simplicity 8526 or we have an Ottobre pattern you may trace (bring paper).

You can sign up for the Joann class till midnight tonight :)) on this website or email us. For the Treadle class, call 651-698-9690. Each month we will focus on another garment for babies to 8 year olds (you can sew for older kids, we just won’t have patterns recommended).

Take it from a grandma with multiple grandkids-you need to take this class and your children will thank you for it (the adult ones or the ones you are still raising :))
