  • Gore setting 101
    Inserting gores into flat fabric Painlessly! Have you ever been intimidated by the thought of putting a gore into the center of your tunic? Have you wondered how to put gores into the shoulders of your hood to make it fit better? This is the class for you! Bring a 12" x 24" piece of cloth (linen or cotton preferred, but a thin, smooth wool will also work) and whatever sewing equipment that you can (scissors, thread, needle, pins, thimble, something to mark with (pencil, chalk, wax, soap etc)) to an hour long class on gore installation. If you don't have fabric and equipment, let me know so that I can bring things to share. Written instructions will be available to go along with the class (50 cents) Hood patterns will be available to purchase ($2 each) if you would like a small project to work on that incorporates gore insertion. I have 3 sizes, childrens, adult medium (fits Helen), and adult Large (fits Ansfrid). ¯Class limit 5 to 8 people Please contact Lady Gudrun for sign up AKA Amy Coxworth goddessaphrael@hotmail.com
