You are welcome to purchase supplies online and pick up the day of your class, just select NE Alberta Store for pick-up.

– Pattern Required: Remy Raglan by Sew House Seven, (possibly need to download and print additional Gathered Sleeve Expansion Pattern)
– Fabric required for size desired (recommend light to medium weight woven fabric, ie. linen, linen/rayon, cotton voile, cotton gauze)*
– 1 spool of Mettler Metrosene All-Purpose Polyester Thread (coordinating or color matching with exterior fabric is recommended)
– One Button (approx. 20mm)
*Make sure to pre-wash your fabric in advance of class. This prevents possible fabric shrinkage that could otherwise make your finished garment too small.
*Skill Level: Advanced Beginner – You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
