Zipper Workshop with guest teacher, Emily Smith

Saturday, June 15, 10am-1pm

$125 or $62.50 for Sew Local Studio Members

Want to elevate your garment sewing with a perfectly inserted zipper? Come join us in this 3 hour workshop where zippers will take center stage! Students will make samplers of the three different styles of zippers that are most often used in garment making: lapped zipper, invisible zipper, and separating zipper. We will discuss some zipper applications and alterations like how to choose the right zipper for your project, how to insert and alter your zipper, and how to repair a broken zipper.

This class is taught by Emily N Smith, a Patternmaker for TV and Film. Emily has sewn professionally at several theaters including the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego and the LA Opera. She currently freelances in the tv/film industry, working on shows such as HBO’s Love and Death, Star Wars’ Ahsoka and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Machines provided and you'll need to purchase a zipper kit from the shop. A detailed supply list will be mailed out to you prior to the class.
