No More Wedding Day Fashion Emergencies | Basic Hand Sewing with Colette Komm

  • 501 Union Main Room (map)

Colette Komm is a New York based couture designer who creates exquisite and luxurious custom wedding gowns, evening gowns and corsets. In this workshop, Colette will lead us through basic hand-sewing techniques that all planners should know in the event of a wedding day fashion emergency. Through hands-on instruction, Colette will show us how to sew a hook and eye, replace a lost eye with thread loops, stitch buttons and even deal with a broken zipper! She'll also go over the best tools to keep in an emergency sewing kit, from a specific type of thread that won’t knot up, to needles that won’t damage delicate silk fabrics—even some stain removal must-haves!
