A Show of Hands!




We have just finished a 5 day Glove workshop at The Academy. Making gloves is so much fun! The students had a great time and their finished gloves turned out perfect!

I was able to find a source for world famous Pittards glove leather. The hand stitched gloves are so soft, they feel like butter! Students custom fitted their patterns and learned how to assemble gloves completely by hand.







Handbag designer Amy Steele http://www.amysteelebags.com/shopping/ attended the workshop and hopes to soon expand her line to carry gloves.

The workshop was so successful that I intend to offer it again in 2012.

Completely stitched by hand... I'm thinking that could replace knitting for a carry along project! Thanks for sharing!

Unbelievable workshop Kathryn! As always, your tutelage and the knowledge you shared was second-to-none. Thank you so much. I can't wait to make more gloves.
