Sew Like a Designer Workshop

Learn how to make a garment in a day

Learn basic sewing with a professional twist as we guide you through the process of making a skirt. In just one day you will:

  • Create a skirt and incorporate some of your own design ideas.
  • See how designers and product developers take a basic industry pattern and create a variety of designs.
  • Learn professional sewing techniques that you can practice at home.
  • Learn how a serger machine is used to create finished seams, edges, and hems.
  • Experience FIDM's unique resources and inspiring environment.
  • Get the inside scoop on the latest fashion trend resources that designers use to inspire them.

No previous sewing experience necessary. Spaces are limited. All attendees must complete a reservation form.
