About the Materials:
Your class fee includes the Boylston bra sewing pattern, 15 hours of instruction, use of sewing machines and basics notions, lunch on both days of the workshop, and water and snacks throughout the weekend.
Bra making requires specialty materials. Your email address will be shared with your instructor so you can purchase a bra making kit directly from Norma prior to class. Your purchased student kit will contain all materials and notions (except thread) to make two bras. An additional supply list will be emailed to students in January 2019.
