Class Description

Mary Sue Fenner: Shop and Sew – One of a Kind Garment Workshop

Mary Sue will help you plan, shop for fabric and sew a one-of-a-kind garment. Each student will make a unique jacket, vest or dress using a pattern custom fit to each student.

Mary Sue will teach classic, traditional and contemporary sewing and finishing techniques to create a one of a kind wearable garment. Her trunk show of more than 70 garments will be available to try on, and photograph for inspiration.

Day One will start with an inspirational Trunk Show of garments. Commercial sewing patterns will be evaluated and students will be guided through alterations, planning and prepping sewing patterns. Day Two we will board a coach bus with sewing patterns in hand, and shop for fabulous fabrics in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Maiden Rock.

Days Three through Five will focus on garment construction and sewing techniques.
