The Sewing Workshop (TSW) in San Francisco’s Richmond District has been in production since 1981, offering a host of different sewing classes, from beginner to advanced, apparel making to jewelry and accessory design.  TSW is offering a new class taught by Jarred Garza, graduate of The Fashion Institute in Los Angeles and Co-Founder and Designer at the Ric Rac Clothing Company.  Jarred will be teaching a Vintage Reconstruction class that lets you rework vintage fabrics and vintage outfits into fresh, new pieces!  Here’s more info on the class if you’re interested:

Oh and by the way, Jarred is also teaching pattern making and tailoring classes at TSW, so check out their calendar for dates and times!  I actually took Pattern Making I with Jarred last year and had a great time in the class!  It’s was a bit advanced for a beginner like myself, but still a wonderful introduction to creating your own designs on paper and translating them into fabric!  Not to mention, Jarred is awesome and works with everyone at their own pace.

So as I said before, Jarred is a co-founder and designer (along with Christina Wheeler) at the Ric Rac Clothing Company, which is a “vintage inspired line dedicated to making fresh, forward clothing with a classic twist and a dash of old world.”  Check out their statement about their clothing line:

Below are some of their designs from their 2009 Spring, Summer (see above), and Fall lines that I really loved!!  And don’t forget to shop for Ric Rac’s Designs here: http://www.shopflick.com/stores/Ric-Rac-Clothing
