She is back!!! After the success of our last weekend jeans-making workshop 3 years ago, we are so excited to invite you to come and make your own jeans with Jeans Queen Lauren Taylor!  This is the only location in all of Canada that Lauren will be teaching this year.

Take your sewing to the next level and make your own custom jeans! While sewing jeans seams like it would be difficult, it doesn't have to be - and instructor Lauren Taylor is going to show you just how easy (and fun!) it can be.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Lauren Taylor lives in Nashville, TN, and has been sewing for most of her life. She is self-taught, and has worked professionally for various clothing designers, created and produced her own small clothing line, and also teaches sewing classes in locally. Lauren blogs at her own personal site,  www.lladybird.com/classes

 Let Lauren show you how fun and fulfilling it is to make your own jeans! In this 2 1/2 day weekend workshop, you will work our way through the Ginger Jeans pattern (her personal favourite!), learning the basics of fitting and construction for making your own jeans. We will also go over all the fun extras that separate jeans from mere pants – topstitching, fancy seam finishes, and installing hardware. Yay!  

 * Please Note: The Ginger jeans pattern is available in sizes 0-20. 

The weekend begins with a fun fitting and cutting party on Friday night.  While getting to know each other, Lauren will first help you determine your size, then we'll get to cutting and marking your denim. Construction will begin on Saturday and continue through the weekend.  You will leave with not only a new pair of jeans, but also the knowledge and empowerment to make more on your own.

The location of this workshop is also historic, we have rented the whole auditorium of the Almonte Town Hall.  This building was built in 1885. The auditorium’s soaring ceiling of hand-hewn Douglas Fir beams offers an acoustic setting unparalleled in the area.  We also have an immense space to grant each student space to be socially distanced and safe.

  • We ask that all attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 
  • Note that social distancing will not be possible at all times. Attendees will be working and eating as a group.
