Organization Description: 

Designer Connie Walkershaw has a fabulous clothing design and ready-to-wear boutique in the heart of Noe Valley. In addition to her gorgeous merchandise, Connie offers sewing classes for kids and adults. Grab a couple of friends and sign up for project-based sewing workshops. You supply the fabric, Connie will supply the sewing machines, thread, and notions. Classes are open to sewers of all levels—no experience is necessary to attend a class. Connie offers summer workshops that are a great way to get together with friends while learning something worthwhile.Camps:Week-long summer workshops are geared toward young designers and anyone who wants to make gifts for family and friends, or just learn about making their own clothes. By creating your own garments you will have a better sense of how clothes should fit you, and when apparel is well made (saving you much heartache and money as a shopper).Workshops will include a series of structured projects, decided by consensus within the group, such as making their own skirts, shorts, sun dresses, pajamas, shoulder bags, stuffies, or t-shirts. Sew is all about teaching process, and begin with a sketch of the envisioned garment. Steps include using a pattern, cutting out your design, fabricating (sewing), and fitting the garment. By the end of the week you will have three or more finished pieces for your wardrobe, and a design book including your sketches, swatches of the fabrics used, and a photo of you in your finished outfit.2013 Week-long Summer Sessions:
