Fit: Fashion for Every Body (3 hours)
Saturday, October 14, 2-5pm • $50
Teacher: Pamela Wynne Butler
Ready to make something perfect? Pamela Wynne Butler’s work is truly special and new. Her e-book “Handsome: Man Sweaters for Every Body” features not only six gorgeous patterns but online tools to customize those patterns to fit our many, various, beautiful bodies. In this special follow-up to our celebration of “Handsome,” Pam (who moonlights as a professor of gender studies at Notre Dame) will walk you through everything you need to know to customize any sweater to fit your body and reflect your personal style. All shapes, sizes, and genders are welcome and celebrated in this class. As Pam says, “In a world that arbitrarily divides just about every aspect of life into ‘his’ and ‘hers,’ man sweaters are for everybody, and for every body.” Bonus: Spun is happy to provide Pamela’s students with coupons for 10 percent off their in-store purchase of “Handsome” (e-book only).
