We are thrilled to offer our most popular workshop in collaboration with our friends at Hammertown. Join us at the Barn in Pine Plains for a day of sewing, food and fun. Sign up with a friend or family member!
Have a Sewing Machine, but never used it? Get acquainted with your machine (or reacquainted with the art of sewing)! Learn how to thread your machine, wind a bobbin, sew a simple seam, and hem edges. Make a pillowcase, tote bag, or drawstring pouch. You’ll have a foundation for all kinds of sewing projects & your machine may become your very best friend!

About Your Instructor

Cal Patch has been a maker since she was a Girl Scout in the seventies. She sews, crochets, spins, embroiders, knits, prints, makes patterns, dyes… hence the name of her label of one-off handmade clothes and accessories: *hodge podge*. She has been teaching all of her fiber crafts at various shops and studios in NYC for the past decade. Her first book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes, was published in 2009. After seventeen years of being a city dweller, Cal recently relocated to the Accord, NY where she plans to be a crafty farmer. You can see what she’s up to at Hodge Podge Farm.

Cal’s book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes: Patternmaking Simplified, is available from Potter Craft.
