Perfecting Machine Sewn Buttonholes : with Ron Collins : Wednesday May 3, 10am-5pm
Join our special guest instructor, Ron Collins, for his Perfecting Buttonholes workshop.
So, your funky-looking buttonholes are ruining your constructed garments?
See what makes a successful buttonhole on your sewing machine, using the proper thread, needle sizes and needles types, stabilizer and seam sealant.
Learn how to do a corded buttonhole for bulky fabrics, also great for a larger button that will stretch out your buttonhole over time.
Bound buttonholes; if you ever did these buttonholes and did not like the finished results, Ron will show how he uses a combination of bound and machine buttonholes which will beat anything in ready to wear. You'll love the creative look of an in-seam buttonhole which can be added horizontally or vertically to any shirt with a placket.
No need to fear buttonholes any longer.
This technique class is one session.
There will be a one hour lunch break each day.
