Beginning to Intermediate

This workshop is designed to use some of the materials that the student may have collected over the years for that special garment: a collection of designer fabrics, fabrics all in one color, buttons, beads, laces and treasured fabrics.

This class will give students the opportunity to combine some or all of their treasures into a fanciful designer coat. Students may further personalize their coat by adding hand or machine embroidery or other fancy stitchery.

Rachel encourages students to create their own very personal statement while giving themselves permission to play. Rachel will share her enthusiasm and unique design approach to creating. Students should begin their preparation by collecting their treasures: button, beads, etc., and at least 15 to 20 fabrics.
