HBL Retail: Liberty's sewing school

Friday, 22 July 2011

London department store Liberty are to host a sewing school this September to celebrate the launch of the Liberty Book of Home Sewing. In one of two classes, Nicole Wilson of needlecraft brand Coats will be teaching students to create a frilly apron, using a pattern from the new book.

Liberty tells us that the new book will contain 25 original projects: "while respecting the essential timelessness of the Liberty Art Fabrics, the projects present a modern interpretation of the prints for a contemporary take on home and lifestyle".

WGSN-homebuildlife subscribers can read our recent report on new and unusual ways of using Liberty prints here, and access our retail guide to aprons here.
