Invisible Zip Workshop
Date: TBA WAIT-LIST available Time: TBA (2 hrs. in total) Teacher: Bernadette Thomas COST: $38.00 (includes kit valued at $8.00- fabric and interfacing, notes and 25cm invisible zip)- please pay on booking Maximum 8 students
Pre-requisite: Basic Sewing Skills
Requirements: please bring your sewing box/tools, thread in a bright colour, sewing machine and invisible zip foot.
Come and learn how to put in an invisible zip in a woven garment properly. Learn about the differences between invisible zips and other zips and where to use them. You will watch a demonstration and then put in a sample zip under supervision so will need to bring your machine. You will also need to have the invisible zip foot for your machine model/brand – this is usually an optional machine extra so you will need to buy one before the course – please do not buy a generic plastic foot as this will give you a generic result. The shop has Janome invisible zip feet in stock at a cost of $19.00 – please order and pay for one prior to the class.
ATTN: Brother Machine Owners: Most modern Brother machines can use this Janome foot – it is superior to the Brother invisible zip foot – so Bernadette recommends you buy a Janome foot . Note: If you do not have a machine or do not wish to bring your machine in - We now have three new Janome “DC2200” machines (incl use of invisible zip foot) available for hire at an additional cost of $20/class – please book and pay early for these.
