A costume hobby is a journey of constant learning. I began knowing absolutely nothing and the more I do learn the more I discover new things to learn! For the past year one of my favorite places to gain knowledge has been the offerings by 1886location.com through their Costume On weekends.
There have been three Costume On weekends beginning in May 2020.
In Costume On 1 I studied:
2. Mid-Nineteenth Century Fans
3. Hand Sewn Buttonholes & Eyelets
4. Intro to Digitizing Embroidery
2. Collar Workshop: Tips, Tricks, Samples & Shaping
3. Online Research
4. Punch Paper Workshop
