Hi y’all! Just popping in today for quick update and reminders!
Bra Making with Madalynne Stockholm:
Visiting London last year was such a high point. Being able to teach 2 amazing bra workshops in a bustling, dynamic city such as London was truly a delight. This year, I’ll be crossing the pond again to teach another international workshop in Stockholm at B’Wear European Bra Summit. Holy shit, I’m so excited! Want to sign up? Deets below.
Overview: Four years ago, Bodil Friman, owner B’Wear, thought that Europeans should have a bra-sewing conferences similar to Saskatchewan Stitches Conference in Canada, which entails 11 days of sewing bras, swimwear, corsets and other lingerie. The first year was such a success that Bodil has continued to do it since!
When and where: The summit is from July 1-9 and I’ll be teaching 2 of those days, on July 6- 7. The classes are held in Farsta, just outside Stockholm, and are easily accessible via bus, subway and train.
Cost: If/when you sign up, you’ll get a invoice for the “startcost” for the class (500 sek per class). In spring, you will receive the invoice for the rest of the class cost to be paid before the class(es). The classes will be around 3000 sek for 2 days and you can purchase here. Note: you can purchase the classes you want to attend – you don’t have to buy for the whole week
Prerequisite: Intermediate sewing knowledge
Project and supplies: Students will be using the Madalynne X Simplicity patterns. All fabrics and trims will be included in cost. It is suggested that you bring your own machine, but we can lend you one if you can’t bring your own.
Bra Making with Madalynne March: Before I head to Sweden though, I’ll be teaching a handful of workshops here in Philadelphia. The next one is March 11 and the project is the Madalynne X Simplicity 8228 racerback bralette (modeled above by the lovely Nicole, 34DD). This is a great class for beginner bra makers who want to dip into the world of bra making, but are hesitant to dive into an underwire style. The only trims needed are elastic; there are no hooks + eyes, underwires or rings + sliders. The project isn’t as complex at the underwire class, so the cost is slightly less – $250 instead of $315.
