Finish your sewing projects!

Do you have bra and garment UFOs (unfinished objects) cluttering up your craft space? Are you itching to start a new project, but feel guilty about all the ones you haven’t finished yet? Are you stuck on a project and need some advice?

Finish it Fridays are designed for you! Sewist and bra maker Abby Pond is opening up her studio one Friday each month for you! Bring your project and your questions and sew along to get those projects finished!

While Abby is on hand to answer your questions, this is not a fully instructed teaching time. If you’d like to learn how to make a bra, consider taking the Essential Bra Making class.

It’s a good idea to check with Abby in advance and book your place as space in the studio is limited.

Essential Bra Making 101 @ Queen of Cups Lingerie Studio
Jan 26 – Jan 27 all-day

Essential Bra Making 101 – your bra making class!

Would you like to learn how to sew your own bra, one that fits and expands your sewing skills?

Join the Queen of Cups for a hands-on, two day workshop where:

  • you’ll learn about the structure of bras and the materials suitable for bra making
  • You’ll receive a bra pattern that is fit specifically for you, so you can make as many bras as you would like for yourself!
  • you’ll construct at least one, possibly two bras based on your pattern, in a small class setting (four people maximum.)

The course fee is $250 plus HST. (Why? See our FAQs)

Ready to Register?

You can register here via online form.

Or, contact Abby at 506.321.1418 or abby@queenofcupslingerie.ca to book your space! Your space is considered confirmed when your deposit has been received.

50% of the course fee is due at registration, with the balance due 7 days before the class begins. Within 7 days of the class, the course fee is non-refundable.

The Course Includes:

  • Two days of instruction from professional bra maker Abby Pond
  • One complete essential bra kit, which includes the fabric, elastics, findings (sliders and rings, hook and eye closure and bow), and underwires
  • One copy of the Pinup Girls Classic bra pattern in your size range
  • One personalized, fitted bra pattern for you
  • Course materials on bra construction process, materials, and more
  • Coffee, tea, and refreshments throughout the day (a kitchen will be on site if you wish to eat lunch)

You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional bra kits, fabric, findings, wires, and learning materials. The fabric in a bra kit is usually enough to construct 2 bras, but you will need to purchase the findings, elastics and wires to complete it.

By the end of the two days, you will have completed at least one basic bra in a pattern fit for you, and have learned the skills to construct your own bras at home with pattern fitted to you.

Space is limited to 4 participants in each session. That ensures you receive lots of personal attention from the instructor.

This course is not for beginning sewists. You will need to have solid basic sewing skills, including sewing straight and curved seams. Experience working with 1/4″ seams is also an asset.

What to bring

You will need to bring the following with you when you come to your course:

  • a functioning sewing machine (please test it before you come) that has straight stitch and zig zag stitch at a minimum; 3-step zigzag and lightning/serpentine stitch are preferable too.
  • all the cords and the pedal for your machine
  • an extension cord
  • a package of  75/11 Stretch needles (Schmetz is recommended)
  • Rotary cutter and mat
  • Paper Scissors, SHARP fabric scissors, thread snips
  • 1/4″ foot or a foot to ensure a perfect 1/4″ seam allowance
  • Topstitching foot or a stitch-in-the-ditch foot if you have one
  • Regular polyester thread in white or a pastel colour (can be ordered from the Queen of Cups in advance)
  • Fabric marking pen that is washout (for Frixion pens)
  • A seam ripper, spare bobbins, a tape measure, a small ruler. Optional are a seam gauge.
  • Drafting paper, scotch tape (if you don’t have on hand, I have plenty!)
  • A water bottle, snacks and your lunch (coffee and tea are available for free on site)
  • If you like extra light when you are sewing, you can bring your own sewing lamp.

It’s a good idea to label all your supplies with your name so they don’t get mixed up with others.

When you register, you’ll receive a course outline and more details of the course itself.
