Espadrilles Making – Oct 13, 20 or Nov 3, 2018

Imagine … making your own shoes!

In this one-day workshop, you will use a basic sewing machine to put together the canvas tops for your espadrilles, complete with interfacing and lining. Then, you will learn the mattress stitch using a waxed cotton yarn. You will spend the afternoon perfecting the skill by hand stitching the tops of your espadrilles to the rubber-bottomed jute soles. If you don’t finish in class, I will send you home with all you need to complete the project.
