About the event

Learn to make glorious one-size-fits-all flower headbands in this 5 1/2-hour class to be held in the beautiful showroom of the last remaining fabric flower factory in New York City, M&S Schmalberg. Family-owned since 1916, they are truly a treasure and we are exceptionally lucky to have the chance to meet with the owner, Adam Brand, who will offer us a private tour of the factory so we can see how their exquisite couture flowers are made. 

We will use a mix of materials including velvet ribbon, vintage silk millinery veiling, and flowers from the factory's enormous stock on hand. All materials for the workshop are included in the class fee except the flowers- students should expect to spend $50-100 on flowers of their choosing during the class to complete their project, and are welcome to shop for additional flowers as well. Most of the necessary tools will be available for your use during class. You are welcome to bring your own materials (except flowers) and supplementary supplies.

Outside of a basic sewing kit (needles, scissors, thimble), all of the necessary tools will be available for your use during class.  However, if you would like to bring your own head form for use during class and later at home, you can get a discount on your first order with my favorite block maker, Guy Morse Brown Hat Blocks, by mentioning that I referred you. I recommend either a utility block or a dolly head in balsa wood:

Class hours: 9:30am-4pm, with an hour break for lunch 

Space is limited to 6 students 

Sewing level: Beginner to Advanced

Cancellation Policy

In the unlikely event that we must cancel a workshop or session, a full refund will be given to each student. In case of cancellation by a student, notice of the cancellation must be sent by email to no less than 72 hours before the start of the class in order to receive a refund.
