Duffle Parka-Making Workshop with Lea-Ann Dorval, November 18-22, 2013 (email info at sundogretreat dot com for details)
Pamper yourself at Sundog Retreat while you learn.
Choose to make a Yukon Parka, an NWT Parka or an Alaska Parka using Lea-Ann’s unique designs.
You’ll go home with a finished, lined and embellished wool parka, customized to fit you. You’ll also take home your pattern, and the knowledge to size it up or down for other people.
This is a workshop for people with advanced sewing skills – you must already know how to install zippers and pockets and sew lining.
Materials are included in the cost of your workshop: 100% wool yardage, Kasha satin lining, zipper, wool felt (embellishments) embroidery threads, beads notions etc. You will want to bring your own sewing machine; some extras may be available if pre-arranged.
Participants will meet with Lea-Ann by October 15 to order fabrics and patterns in advance.
If you decide to have a fur ruff, you’ll need to bring your own fur and Lea-Ann will teach you to install it. Plus-size participants may need to order an extra metre of wool and lining (additional cost $45).
Workshop fee includes shared accommodations and meals at the beautiful Sundog Retreat 20 minutes north of Whitehorse.
The workshop begins Monday November 18 at 8:30am and finishes Friday November 22 at 4:30pm. Meals and snacks are included. Evening sessions will require learners to participate on-site.
