Online Workshop—Robyn Spady—Closure Ideas for Garments without Invasive Buttonholes

Making a buttonhole can be daunting since it often means putting a hole in a garment or fashion accessory. In this class, participants will explore different techniques that may be used to secure a garment or fashion accessory. From frogs and hand-wrapped hooks and eyes, to knotting and clasps, designing and making your own closures can be fun and exciting.

Instructor Bio: Robyn Spady was introduced to handweaving as a baby with a handwoven baby blanket woven by her great-grandmother and learned to weave at a young age. She has been weaving for over 50 years and completed HGA's Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving (COE-W) in 2004 with the specialized study Loom-controlled Stitched Double Cloth. Robyn is fascinated by the infinite possibilities of crossing threads and loves coming up with new ideas to create fabric and transform it into something new and exciting. She is also the founder and editor of Heddlecraft® magazine.

Cost: Members $35.00, Non-members $45.00

Please email Claudia Gibson at ccgmpcr@gmail.com to let her know if you'll be attending this workshop.
