    Sewing with Handwoven Fabric with Sharon Baker Kelly
November 10, 2007

What’s so special about handwoven garments? Why cut unto your handwoven fabric, when squares and rectangles are the shapes we weave? If you don’t already know the answers to these questions from first hand experience, then this is the workshop for you! In the afternoon workshop, participants will create a 16 – 18” pillow top using scraps of their own handwoven fabric, coordinating bias strips and fusible interfacing. A sewing machine in clean, working order and a familiarity with sewing basics are required for the afternoon workshop. Sharon will mail out a complete supply list to registered participants.
Maximum number of participants:
12 for hands-on in the afternoon
Materials fee per student: +/- $10

Sharon Baker Kelly, the “Diva Weava,” brings 40 years of sewing experience to her handwoven garment construction. She asks her students to forget notions of “quick” when sewing with their precious handwoven fabric. The process of choosing fibers and structures for weaving is joyous and challenging, and creating one-of-a-kind wearable sculptures with this vibrant fabric is an enviable art! Sharon has enthusiastically embraced handwoven fabric as her fiber medium of choice, and enjoys inspiring others to join the fun.
