Community Tailoring Classes

7 Jul







The response to my classes at the Brooklyn Brainery have been so overwhelming! Thus, I’m very excited to announce my upcoming plans to teach community tailoring classes. I hope to launch the first class in late August (after I return from my annual month-long retreat to the Berkshires) at a Brooklyn coffee shop, TBD. 


These will be casual, open classes. Everyone can walk away with something useful, whether or not you have a sewing machine at home and no matter your level of experience. Beginners can come for an introductory crash course; the more advanced can come for individualized advice on altering specific garments. Bring your ill-fitting clothes, and I’ll provide the rest. Cost is pay-what-you-wish, suggested donation $20.


Subscribe via email with the form in the right sidebar if you’d like to be notified about upcoming classes.








Cheers!

Just When You Thought You Had to Throw Them Away…

5 Jun

For over a month now I’ve been working at family-owned Greenpoint general store, Kill Devil Hill. We sell an assorted collection of antiques, gifts, house-made candles and soaps, products from other local artisans, custom-made aprons and denim repairs (among other things).


It had never occurred to me before I started at Kill Devil Hill that a tear in a pair of jeans was reparable (apart from, perhaps, with an unsightly patch). But oh how wrong I was! If you have a pair of jeans that are full of holes (or just inappropriate thanks to one inopportune crotch hole), but you just can’t bear to part with them, you are not alone. As it turns out, we Americans really love our jeans. Bring them on by the shop — 170 Franklin St @ Java — and we will mend your holes!


This new-found knowledge, of course, inspired me to dig out some of my old trash-bound jeans and fix them up.

Sad jeans…


Happy jeans!

Never give up!
