Join our special guest instructor, Ron Collins, for his Time to Zip It Up workshop.
Having a hard time with your zippers? 
Centered zipper, fly front, lapped zipper, exposed zipper pocket and invisible: these five zipper techniques are a must for any clothing construction.

Learn the centered zipper with a fool proof technique that will never shift again when inserting it. 
See how to design fly front zippers with a deep placket to avoid the zipper or zipper pull from showing on the center front of your pants or jeans along with adding in the zipper shield. 
Lapped zippers is where all the construction is to one side and is always great for most dresses, pants and skirts. 
An invisible zipper is not as hard to sew as you might think; the secret is the pressing of the zipper before sewing. 
Exposed zipper pocket is great outerwear jackets; see how the pocket lining makes the pocket opening for easy construction.

These closure options and techniques will add unique details and finishes to your garment making repertoire and styling.

This technique class is one session.
There will be a one hour lunch break.
