We are very excited to offer two weeklong courses for teens this summer! For any teen who’s wondered what goes into those amazing Broadway costumes, Jasmine Pai will teach “Costume Design for Theater,” June 15-19. Unlike fashion design, whose goal is to produce an impressive visual effect, costume design analyzes different characters within a play and enhances their particular traits.
Learn the traditional Japanese technique and history of Sashiko, or hand-sewn quilting, with Susan Sato of Easy Piecing! This special workshop will be on Wed., May 29, 6-8 p.m.—as space is limited, the class will be for only four lucky beginners. Susan will discuss basic stitching techniques, Sashiko books, threads, stencils and patterns, and show us beautiful samples to demonstrate various ways to use Sashiko.
The Yarn Company is thrilled to welcome indie knitwear designer Toby Roxane, who will come to the store on Saturday, June 15 for a trunk show and booksigning (2-4 p.m.). She is designing four exclusive patterns for us and we are very excited!!! Toby studied writing and art at Sarah Lawrence College and knitwear design at the London College of Fashion, and her designs range from vintage to clean & modern shapes.
