We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Learn how to make cute & cozy slippers out of recycled sweaters and old leather coats!

Sweaters to Slippers

This is a two-session class and on the first day, you’ll find your style with materials you brought, or with materials we have on hand (fleece for contrast and lining, recycled leather for the soles, etc). We’ll cut our patterns, and we might even begin the sewing process. We’ll pull everything together on the second night. This will be so fun! You’ll see lots of examples of what you can create.

Registration Includes

By the end of class, you’ll go home with a pair of slippers for yourself, or that you can give as a gift!

  1. Plunging to repeat this? I see both classes are already sold out!

  2. Would love to take this hope the class will be offered agian

  3. Hello, I just finished a craft show where I talked to a lady who said the mittens class was cancelled. I just thought I would tell you that I could fill in as a teacher for the up cycled wool sweater mittens. I have made hundreds of them. They are beautiful and sell very well. I live in Superior.

  4. I wish this class was being offered again too. I really was looking forward to able to learn this craft

  5. When signing up for a class in November, I found this class from a few weeks back. Would love to have it offered again!
