One of our many advantages here at Bare Root is our ability to design soft goods and then SEW them!  We don't mean sew with stitch witchery either.   Our soft goods have been featured in Architectural Digest not once, but twice. We know textiles and we know design.  Merging both of those skills set us apart from any interior design studio or workroom in the area.

Constructing your own Designer Pillow in an afternoon 

A private lesson sharing everything we know when it comes to making pillows -- including fabric choices, choosing passementerie, options for closures, inserts, self welting tricks and design options.   Bring your own fabric or choose from our selection of sumptuous cotton velvets and come prepared to sew and leave with one finished 20" square pillow cover or one designer lumber pillow approximately 14"x22". This lesson will be part demonstration and hands on instruction depending on your sewing comfort level. Fee: $95 (BYO fabric) or choose from an array of fabulous 100% cotton velvets in a multitude of colors for an additional $55.  This yardage will be enough to complete one 20" square pillow or two lumber pillows.

 Inquire through the contact page for further information on additional size options, yardage information and sample kits.

Textiles for the Home

This lecture will focus mainly on the selection of fabrics for your interior environment.   With so many textile options it's clear how someone can be overwhelmed with choices.  Yet, textiles are an affordable option for someone looking to update a room without the high cost of a complete re-do.  We will look at our selection of fabrics & trims in the studio that are suitable for draperies, pillows, slipcovers, valances, sheers, and even furniture.   We will experiment with texture, patterns, drapability, durability, color and interesting design options that will give you the designer edge and confidence you need to take a project to completion.  Feel free to bring fabrics for review and we'll discuss your design options.  Fee: $40.    Please register through the contact page for the next class date.  Fee is due in full prior to class.
