Romancing the Flag

“One man’s trash is another one’s treasure.” This old adage rings true for Libby Williamson of Blue Denim Design.  This class is all about enhancing a worn-out, tired American Flag, rejuvenating it into a beautiful art piece.

Using an old flag as the foundation, you will add layers of fabric strips and trims to recreate a beautiful flag. By adding surprising elements such as neck ties, belts and zippers, your flag will shine with personality. Sewing experience is not necessary. There will be minimal sewing on Libby’s machines and she will instruct you on the basic use of the machines, guiding you throughout the class.

The class fee is $60 and a $25 materials fee will include an old flag, a belt, a zipper, a neck tie, ribbons, lace, yarn, and a wide variety of fabrics and trims for a total fee of $85.  There will be a selection of vintage findings and unique treasures for purchase that you can add to your flag. You may also bring special memorabilia such as military patches and medals, trims and buttons to incorporate into your piece but your flag will be beautifully complete with the supplies available in the class.

The class will run for 3 ½ - 4 hours, depending on the intricacy of your project. You may bring a sack lunch or snack (or can purchase treats from Rutabegorz restaurant next door) or you can choose to work straight through if you prefer.

This project will make a truly unique gift, or a cherished art piece for your home to display with pride.

Space is limited. Please call the shop to hold your spot! Telephone: 714-289-4689
