LEARN TO SEW: Winter Cycling Cap

  • KLUM HOUSE STUDIO 6006 N Oberlin St Portland, OR, 97203 United States (map)

Ever wanted to make your own cycling cap? Well, here's your chance! The cycling cap is an essential part of a cyclists daily wear -- performing the multiple functions of keeping the sun & rain out of your eyes while providing an underlayer to your helmet-- all the while adding style to your look. This class takes functional sewing projects to the next level. A cycling cap is a great project to spend the afternoon learning, because it's approachable, yet challenging enough to need an instructor there. In this class, students with a basic knowledge of sewing will design, cut, and construct a cycling cap complete with elastic band to ensure proper fit. You will go home with a cap that you made yourself with your own two hands!  Ellie Lum, a sewing teacher with over a decade of experience teaching sewing and making messenger bags, will guide you through the process step-by-step, in a seamless session of panel-sewing.

Level 2 Sewing Class: Prior experience on a sewing machine is needed to take this class. Students must be familiar with winding a bobbin and threading their machine and basic machine operation. Please take one of our Intro To Sewing classes prior to taking this class and/or be proficient at operating a sewing machine.

**We provide sewing machines and all materials (optional) for the projects in class. 

Class Fee - $60 + $15 project kit (optional)
