August 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm PDT$126
Instructor: Emma Jarvis
Skill Level: Beginner*, ages 15 and up
Class Sessions: 2 sessions, 3 hrs each session
A bucket hat is the perfect accessory for the PNW. Enjoy shade from the sun on the beach, a hike, or just lounging in a park sipping iced tea. This hat has the option for a narrow or wide brim, so whether you want a little sun protection, or a lot, this versatile pattern has you covered!
During this two day workshop, you will practice techniques such as sewing curves, working with interfacing, adding top-stitching details, and how to work with a print-at-home pattern.
All class supplies are available for purchase at Modern Domestic. Please purchase supplies in advance of your class.

– 5/8 yard Main fabric (canvas, denim, mid-heavy weight linen, other heavy-weight, structured fabric, 44” wide minimum)

– 1 spool of Mettler Metrosene All-Purpose Polyester Thread (coordinating or color matching recommended)

*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: Beginner – You’ve taken a class or two and are starting to get comfortable with the basics. You know what a seam allowance is, you’ve sewn a little on your own, but you still need a little help with remembering how to thread the machine and wind a bobbin. These classes usually have little if any homework to complete outside of class time. The prerequisite for any Beginner class is a Sew Basics class, Learn to Sew class, or equivalent. This skill level is not for people who have never used a sewing machine before.
