Rainwear Workshop August 20-24, 2012

The Academy of fine Sewing & Design will be offering a Rainwear workshop next month.  Based on her article for Vogue Pattern magazine, Kathryn Brenne will demonstrate how to completely seal and waterproof seams, how to add a removable zip out liner, design pockets and sew with specialty fabrics.
Students will have the opportunity to complete several samples as well as work on their own individual  project.  Participants can design the perfect raincoat.
Here are details from the raincoat Kathryn did for Vogue.  Kathryn added an inside zippered pocket to keep things dry, velcro cuffs for easy on/off, a breathable wicking upper lining, completely sealed seams and outer invisible zippered pockets.
For more information about the workshop contact The Academy of fine Sewing & Design 705-494-8529.
