Maker Class - Let's Make Wool Mittens!

This sew along workshop is guaranteed to be festive and fun!  Karen will walk you through the easy-to-follow instructions and you will leave with a pair of eco-friendly, fleece lined, wool mittens that you can give as a gift or keep for yourself.  And because we know you will become addicted, you will go home with a sewing pattern, so you can make mittens to your hearts content!

Mittens make great gifts- for teachers, dog walkers, snow shovelers, sports spectators, and those with Raynauds and other circulatory issues.

What you should bring:

  •         Inspiration- check out Karen’s Instagram account @sullysmittenco
  •         A sewing machine that you are fairly confident can make it through 3 layers of thickness.
  •         Your intermediate sewing skills
  •         One to two sweaters that have a minimum of 80% wool content.  If you don’t have one in your closet, you can hunt at the thrift store, or Karen will be bringing some that you can purchase for $8. 
  •         Sweaters will need to be felted (washed).  You will get easy tips ahead of time from Karen on how to felt your sweater.
  •         Thread to match your sweater.
  •         Buttons if you would like to add them to the cuff.
  •         Scissors
  •         Ruler or measuring tape

Instructor: Karen Sullivan
Instructor Bio: I'm Karen Sullivan, the "Sully" behind Sully's Softies. I'm originally from California, but I am now proud to call Kansas City my home. The mid-west suits me just fine! Except for one thing... That one thing? You guessed it! It can get freakin' cold here. When I first arrived, I was able to stay warm, except for my hands....they were always cold! Try as I might, I couldn't find any gloves or mittens that would keep them warm, and as you can guess, I really, really, hate cold hands -and I know I am not alone! Am I right? I love finding old things and repurposing and making them "new" and useful again. I am amazed at all of the "stuff" that people collect and then get rid of. Beautifully made wool sweaters that have a small stain or hole, caught my eye, and knowing the many benefits of wool made me consider them for my "mitten mission". I began making mittens for myself, and then I started getting requests from the mom's I would hang with while we watched our kids sporting events in the frigid weather. I opened my Etsy shop in 2014 and never turned back. I'm excited to share my love of mitten making with all of you!
Class includes pattern, one pair of liners and a whole lot of fun!
