Using SAORI Cloth

Using SAORI Cloth


We just fold or gather parts of the fabric so that it will elegantly fit the person who will be wearing it. …The process of trial and error will lead to interesting discoveries. I would like you to find pleasure in this process. —Misao Jo

In this class, we will take a look at the process of using your handwoven cloth to create a garment from a SAORI pattern the SAORI way.

Watch a demonstration, receive advice and hints! You will be guided in an easy to understand way. We may cover how to:

  • finish your cloth after weaving

  • cut the cloth

  • listen to the cloth and design with your feelings

  • sew different seam finishes, and when to use each one

This is not a sewing class, but rather more of a how to; to build confidence and unleash your creativity! You can bring handwoven cloth along so you can mark your cloth to finish at home. Even if you don’t have cloth, or have limited sewing skills, you can still participate, learn the process, and pick up tips!

Each month will be a different pattern from the SAORI Beginners Sewing Book.

Class meets once a month.

Two hours.
