Class Schedule

Summer-Fall 2022




Beginning Tatting    •    Hinge Gate Purse    •    Sunburst Cockade    •    Mid-Victorian Dress






         Beginning Tatting
         with Kevin Baum

         Saturday, August 13, 2022 — 12:30 AM to 4 PM
           $45


This class concentrates on the double stitch, which all shuttle tatting is based on. Once this first step has been mastered, we will learn to make rings and picots, and then how to connect rings through picots. The goal of these classes is to create, with practice, a simple edging of connected rings and picots.

         Hinge Gate Purse
         with Lynn McMasters

         Saturday, September 24, 2022 — 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
           $45 + $10 kit fee (payable to instructor)


In this class, you will learn how to create a hinge gate purse that should be able to contain all your modern trappings (cell phone, etc) in one delightful vintage-styled package.
    The hinge gate purse frame first came into vogue during the 1880s. Constructed of a metal folding gate collar and round flip top, the frame expanded when open. The body was usually made of silk, velvet or tapestry. To close the bag, the metal gate is pushed back together and the flip top snapped back into place. Cloth or chain handles were attached for hand carrying.

         Sunburst Cockade
         with Patrice Krems

         Saturday, October 1, 2022 — 12:30 AM to 5 PM
           $55 + $20 kit fee


You will be most familiar with the Sunburst Rosette Cockades on military tricorne hats in the Revolutionary War and cloche hats and dresses in the 1920s.The Sunburst Rosette Cockade is a vintage style favorite that can be modified in countless different ways and give you every opportunity to display or wear your ingenuity.
    Among the techniques you will learn is how to make beaded stamens. This vintage-style cockade can be also be transformed into delightful dangling flowers twirling like whimsical ballerinas from the ends of the gimp stems.
    The cockade flowers look best made out of French wired ombré ribbon, while the Sunburst Rosette Cockade is traditionally made out of grosgrain ribbon. The sample in the picture is also made from French wired ombré ribbon.

Come make a mid-Victorian gown from 1830 to 1865 to wear to Victorian balls, Civil War reenactments, Victorian Holiday Fairs, or any occasion you desire. You will start with a Truly Victorian bodice pattern of your choice and augment it with authentic 19th-century dressmaking techniques to make a custom gown just for you! This class will cover measurements, pattern adjustments, fitting, making a skirt without a pattern, period sewing techniques, trimming, boning, hand finishing, and much more.
     In the first session, you will cover a brief overview of the styles worn in the era. You will take measurements, trace off the correct pattern pieces, and then make and fit mockups. You will then move on to cutting and constructing your bodice and finish the day by adding boning.
     In the second session, you will concentrate on closures and facings and then make and attach the skirts.
     This year we will offer an Optional Lab session (10/23). In this session, you will work under the guidance on the instructor to apply the finishing touches on your garment.
     Prerequisites: Students must know how to use a sewing machine.
