Current Schedule

Crafternoons – DOUBLE DOWN!
TWO Crafternoons, TWO opportunities to boost your costume collection using your own TWO hands! We will be reprising our Pantaloon Crafternoon from a couple years ago, as well as holding a whole new Crafternoon workshop to make accent skirts!

Register for both and take $10 off. Use the coupon code “DoubleDown”.

No sewing skills? No problem! Have a sewing machine and some sewing savvy? Bring it along! No matter what your experience, everyone will lend their skills to the collective as Shay guides the group through the process of cutting, sewing, and finishing a bevvy of colorful costuming.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
You must pre-register for these workshops or else you will not have the materials list in time to participate. Once you have registered, I will send out a materials list and recommendations for how and where to purchase your materials. For the saris, they are usually on Ebay and must be shipped long distances, so ordering early as possible is vital. I also have a few options for sale if you are unable to procure one in time for the workshop, so e-mail me for options and reserve one for yourself!

 

Sari SkirtsCrafternoon: Sari Split Skirts
Saturday, February 21st, 1-4pm

@ Deep Roots Dance at m’illumino
6921 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle

Show up with a pile of fabric; walk away with a costume piece and be proud to say, “I made this!” This Crafternoon will focus on Sari Split Skirts. We will be re-purposing beautiful vintage sequin saris to make a versatile over-skirt which will add variety, color, and sparkle to your costume ensembles. Worn over pantaloons or our beloved fluffy skirts, these skirts are perfect for different luscious looks for stage and studio alike.

Participants will work collaboratively, pooling our skills to measure, cut, sew, and finish each piece so everyone walks away with a lovely new skirt. The fitting and sewing techniques employed will be incredibly simple, so it’s a great way for bare beginner sewers and crafters to dip their toes in the costuming waters.

Registration includes a pre-workshop shopping guide, three hours of hands-on guidance from a costuming professional, printed instructions for future reference, and elastic. Limit 12 participants.

Bellydance PantaloonsCrafternoon: Pantaloons
Sunday March 14th, 1-4pm

Time to get crafty together and make some poofy pantaloons (aka “harem pants”). This costume element is a staple for every style of bellydance–you can never have too many in your arsenal! We’ll work together to measure, cut, sew, and finish each pair so we walk away with a new pair of ‘loons.

Participants will need to bring 4 yards of a lightweight to medium-weight material appropriate for pantaloons. Suggested material types and local recommended shopping locations available upon registration.

Registration includes a pre-workshop shopping guide, three hours of hands-on guidance from a costuming professional, printed instructions for future reference, and elastic. Limit 12 participants.
