Don't have a thing to wear? Come and work on your garb and garb-related projects in the Eastern Michigan University costume shop! This is not a structured class but instead an opportunity to work on those projects you've been putting off finishing or haven't started yet. Cutting tables, sewing machines, sergers, industrial iron, and advice will be provided. Also welcome is anyone wishing to work on other fabric projects like regalia or padded fighting jacks or fencing doublets (the shop has industrial sewing machines that can sew through all those layers).
Please check our calendar for the most up-to-date information on our current activities.
Please bring your own materials and notions.
If you're planning on coming and would like patterning help, please bring your research or contact Mistress Melisant Saint-Clair in advance at mschuess.AT.bond-family.DOT.com so she can bring relevant resources.
Parking is now in the Alexander lot, which is on the south side of Jarvis St. next to the music building. (Note: EMU's parking policy has changed and visitors now must park in the Alexander lot, which is not free. Those parking in the old location at the Ford lot may be ticketed.) You may also be able to find a parking place off-campus on a side street, and the campus parking meters are free on the weekends. Walk east down Circle Street to the Quirk Building. On the far left side of the front of the Quirk Building (the side with the circular drive), there is a door at the end of a deep alcove. Pound HARD on the door, and we will come let you in.
