Steampunk in Seattle: Petticoat Workshop

Attention all Seattle Steampunks! For those of you wishing to learn how to craft the perfect petticoat to go with your steamy wardrobe, you do not want to miss this upcoming workshop. Somewhere in Time, Unlimited (SITU) is presenting a Petticoat (1890-1910) Workshop as a two part series, on Sunday, July 17, 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm at a branch of Seattle Public Library.

If you are interested in participating, the supplies fee is $10, which will cover the handouts and a full size pattern.  All you need to bring is pencil and paper for taking notes. Because SITU needs to gather the supplies, pre-registration for this Part 1 of the workshop is required.  You can send a check for $10 payable to Bobbie Kalben (SITU is not a legal entity for banking purposes), put “SITU Petticoat Workshop” in the memo line of the check and mail your check to:

SITU
PO Box 28117
Seattle, WA 98118

Or, in a few days, SITU will have a PayPal button for this workshop on the SITU website that you can use to register for this workshop.

Somewhere in Time, Unlimited sponsors historic costumed social events in the Seattle vicinity which reflect the most enjoyable aspects of past eras, so there’s a lot of cross-over in interests between the Steampunk community and Somewhere in Time.
