We are excited to announce our first ever PR Workshop with Kenneth King in Lowell, MA on November 5th, 6th, 7th.

If you've ever wanted to make your own Moulage (sloper/muslin), now's your chance to learn from the Master himself.

In this 3-day workshop being held at the American Textile History Museum in the historic town of Lowell, MA we will take our measurements and draft our own Moulage. Space is limited in this workshop so register now!

Fee: $399 ($359 for Friends of PR and ATHM members)

Is there a time frame for the three days? I'm trying to figure out about commuting time added to class time.

I've done the moulage on my own and I highly recommend this class. I would have loved to have him right there to answer all my questions. Sign up if you can. Too bad it's on the wrong side of the country for me.

I'm in! I sent DH an email asking if we could afford it, and this was his reply:

''It is expensive, but it's something you are passionate about and take seriously. I say go for it!''

Is this guy a keeper, or WHAT?! Of course, it could just be a ploy to make me feel guilty enough to start - and finish - the shirt I've promised him.

Is the CD included in this class or do we need to purchase it separately? Will we need it for the class? Really looking forward to this! Kenneth is such a fabulous teacher.

Deepika,

I will be unable to bring my sewing machine. Will we be able to rent/borrow one? I am so excited for this class!
