cal patch  🌱🐓🧵🌻 I make stuff by hand, mostly clothes, and teach others how too. I live on my mini farm in the Catskills. 👗✂️🌾🧶🦋🍃🌸

pretty girl!

we had fun making crochet rag rugs on Saturday at @fiberonmain! made from old T-shirts, sheets and surplus fabric, they’re a great way to celebrate Earth Day.

the elusive holy grail of a workshop teacher’s existence is the Finished Project Photo. often my students don’t quite finish their garments by the end of class, or it’s a mad dash to the finish, or they are camera shy or tired and not in the mood to model, or we forget, or various other reasons we fail to get a pic! so when we do, it’s extra special. here are 4 finished projects from Leggings, Folk Dress and Boxy Tee classes last weekend at @craftworksomerville. somehow out of 15 students, that’s all we got. but each of these brings a ray of joy to my heart, and every time a student sends me a photo of something they finished later, or a new project they made using what they learned, the joy grows exponentially. thank you to all who come out and take workshops and learn new skills and support independent teachers and maker spaces! we love you. ❤️✂️🧵 #sewyourown #handmadewardrobe

good times were had this weekend in Somerville! i’m there every Spring & Fall so get on her news list to stay in the loop... and Amy Lou teaches printing and dyeing with plants, as in the goddess-worthy dress she’s wearing here... #Repost @craftworksomerville

we’re having lots of fun at bright and sunny @craftworksomerville this weekend! it’s a 3-day non-stop stitch jam: yesterday was Leggings, today was Boxy Tee/Drapy Tunic, and tomorrow is Folk Dress. some just took one, some took two, one took all! nothing like a full immersion in pattern drafting and handmade wardrobe construction! i always love watching the various ways my students approach their projects, from methodically thinking through each step to diving in and not looking back; both with equally marvelous results. i’m so proud of them all! #sewyourown #handmadewardrobe
