More dates to be announced ...
Loes is a designer who offers classes for experienced sewists. She shares her 45 years of experience as a wholesale clothing designer, pattern maker, and retail boutique owner. Her sewing seminars give sewists the confidence to make their own beautiful, clothing.
What happens at a seminar?
Each seminar allows for small groups to focus on learning Loes' techniques.
In a typical seminar, students will pick a project from patterns that are used for the Loes Hinse store. It could be a jacket, a pair of pants, or a t-shirt, for instance.
Then students learn to customize the pattern to their body and produce the project with Loes' unique methods and styling.
What should I bring?
An open mind :)
Loes prefers for people to bring their own machines (serger and regular sewing machine). Other arrangements can be made in advance.
Basic sewing tools: scissors, pins, thread, etc.
Loes curates a seasonal collection of fabrics that she uses to create clothing for the store. Some of these will be available for purchase.
If you have your own fabric, make sure to talk with Loes before bringing it, as not every fabric will work with her patterns.
