Zipper Lab

Zippers get a bad rap of being notoriously intimidating but are actually surprisingly easy with simple tips, tricks and tools from the gals at Stitch Lab! We’ll walk you through 3 different zipper techniques--the centered zipper, the lapped zipper and the invisible zipper. Students will practice each method on scrap fabric and will leave with new zipper confidence and a nice sample reminder of each style.

Prerequisite: Students must be at least 13 years old, and must have taken the Beginning I Sewing Series or Crash Course at Stitch Lab, or have the equivalent experience. Not sure? E-mail and we'll discuss!

5 students per class

“I was pleased that the supplies were already set up (fabric used to sew zippers, scissors, etc.) and at our table beforehand. This made the class move more quickly. I also liked the size of the class (five). I felt that this gave each student access to the teacher and not have to wait too long for help.” -- Rebecca
