Sweaters to Mittens!

  • March 23, 2019
    12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Do you have old woolen sweaters or coats taking up space in your drawers and closets? Maybe you just can’t part with them, or they have accidentally been shrunken? This class is your solution to giving that clothing new life in the form of attractive, functional, warm mittens!

Sweaters to Mittens

 

During this class, our goal is to complete at least one pair of mittens from beginning to end. The mittens can be made in a variety of sizes.

Sweaters to Mittens

The lining will be made from new non-pill polar fleece, and embellished with buttons. A variety of colors will be available.
I will also show you examples of other forms of embellishment that you may want to try later.

Come join the fun – every pair will be different!

Sweaters to Mittens

Registration Includes

We will provide all (or mostly all) materials:  Pattern, thread, buttons, non-pill polar fleece, and use of sewing machines, scissors, pins and needles and instruction. If you don’t bring your own old sweater or wool coat, you may purchase pieces during class for $5.00 or less.

Skill Level

The only skill needed is basic experience using a standard sewing machine.

Best for Ages…

18 and up

You should bring…

  • Bring an old sweater. Bring more than one if you want to combine colors/parts of each. Don’t use your very best sweater, since this is your first time, but it’s up to you. Pre-washed wool or partial wool is best, but, it doesn’t have to be. Avoid loose bulky knit cotton sweaters. A wool coat will also do the trick! If you don’t have a sweater or coat, the instructor will have extra pieces available to purchase for under $5.
  • Bring good fabric scissors, if you have them.
  • We will have a few sewing machines available to use, but if you feel more comfortable with yours, please bring yours.

    Is there a waitlist for the mitten class?

    • Bryan French says:

      There is – unfortunately, the waitlist for this class already has the maximum number of people it can accommodate! We’re working on getting new classes on the calendar, and hopefully, this one will show back up again.
