Lillstreet Archer Wrap Up & New Class

Grainline Studio | Lillstreet Archer Class


Last night was the final night of my Lillstreet Arts Center Archer Class! I was a little bit terrified to teach this class, it’s the first class I’ve ever taught, but I really had so much fun with this crew, I wish we had more than 4 weeks! I forgot to take a photo of everyone with their Archers till right before class had ended and so a few people had left already, but I’m so proud of all the Archers that came out of this class!!

I’ll be teaching a 10 week Garment Construction course starting next week on Wednesday evenings at Lillstreet so if you’re in Chicago, here’s the link. It’s a bit of a free-form class, but if you’ve got a specific skill or project you’d like to tackle, this is a great class for it. Also Lillstreet’s sort of my new jam…everyone is SO nice and helpful and fun!

Heads up, I just started making the slideshow of all of the Archer Appreciation photos. I was going to post today but realized I was super unclear about when things needed to be posted to the Flickr Group by. I’ll be posting Monday so have your Archer in the group by Saturday at noon CST and you’re in!

    I wish I live in the US so i can take the class andmake my plaid archer 🙁
    May I ask a question if I am doing plaid and french seam, do i just match the plaid as I would if i serge the seam allowance or is there a trick to matching plaids with french seam?
    I’ve googled everywhere and got no results …

    And can I ask another question,I have a stretch woven fabric to make moss mini skirt, but I could not figure out since it has stretch do I treat it like a knit or woven? Do I just use straight stitc like on a woven and “ignore” the stretch while sewing or do I use zig zag stitch?

    Thank you soooooo much ….
    I’m kind of a newbie at sewing …

    I so want to take a class from you, but weekday evenings are tough for me – please keep posting about any classes you’re teaching and hopefully I will be able to make it happen!

    I think you should tour the country teaching people to sew Archers!

    Congratulations on your first foray in teaching. I’m sure you did a great job! Wish I lived closer so I could take one of your classes!

    Eek! I taught my first ever sewing class yesterday! I was terrified also, even though my day job is teaching high school. But it was sooooo much fun! I’m so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and did this. Sounds like you guys had an awesome time, too! Congrats!
