Sewing Summit :: Sewing With Leather Class

Tomorrow begins registration for Sewing Summit 2013.   It’s only 8 weeks away!

I will be teaching a lecture and a hands on class for Sewing With Leather.

I wanted to share the pictures and description in the event you are interested in this class!

I will be offering the lecture and tote pattern for purchase after Sewing Summit for those unable to attend.

———-

Lecture :: Sewing With Leather
In the first of this two-session class, we will learn tools, tips, techniques and troubleshooting to get you on your way to using leather in your sewing projects.   Leather not only adds durability to your handbags and accessories but also adds a professional and polished look.   We will start with the different types of leather and where to source all the way to caring for the finished product.   You will walk away with inspiration and know-how to add a little bit of luxury to your handmade goods.
Hands On :: Sewing With Leather
In the second session we will take the knowledge we acquired and use it to make a tote bag.  In this class we will be working with suede and will learn three ways to use the leather on one handbag.    The techniques we cover will take a simple tote bag and turn it into a bag that gets noticed!

 

I love sewing with leather and am really excited to share!!

Sewing Summit, Pellon Projects, Etsy, oh my!

I have several things to share and felt a bit silly doing a separate post for each.

So this is a random mash up post to get it all out there!    If you ever meet me in person, this is not unlike my personality.   Once I start talking I tend to word vomit on a zillion topics.

I don’t get out much, lol.

(1)  Sewing Summit!

I’m super excited to share that I’ll be teaching this year.

My class will be on Sewing with Leather and will be a 2-part lecture + hands on class.

The lecture will go over  sourcing, sewing, and caring for leather/suede in your sewing projects along with inspiration, tips and tricks.

In the hands on class we will take what we learned in the lecture and put it to use in making a tote bag with suede accents.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, April 16th at 10am MST!  

It’s going to be lots of fun, I hope to see you there!

(2)  Pellon Projects

I signed on last year to be a Pellon Projects Designer and I turned in my first tutorial a couple weeks ago.

It’s for a roll up cosmetics case.   I made these for swap gifts at Sew South and just loved how the pattern turned out.  I can’t wait to share it with you.

I’m still waiting to hear when the tutorial will go live, but I will be sure to keep you updated.     The Pellon website was just given a fresh new look, so pop over and peek if you haven’t been by in awhile.   It looks great!

(3)  I finally updated my Etsy shop, and have large and small clutches and key fobs available.    Use coupon LR15OFF for 15% off, cause I love ya!

(4)  I’m thankful to welcome a new sponsor, Lima Sews!

Linh has a gorgeous Etsy shop full of modern fabrics and also offers long arm quilting too.

What else…

I’m way behind on sharing about Sew South.    I got home, then it was Easter, last week was Spring Break and this week I’m planning a baby shower for my sister’s first babe.   Feeling a little cuckoo lately.     I also finally got with the times and joined Instagram.  You can follow me @lrstitched if you’d like to see my bits of randomness.

I think that’s it.   Hope you’re having a great start to the week and that you and your loved ones are safe.   I just read about what happened in Boston and am so sad.    I just cannot understand the why behind this.     Trying to remember that there is more love than hate in this world and focus on that.    Thoughts and prayers are with these families.
