Pillbox Workshop

  • Jill Courtemanche Millinery 410 S Cedros Ave Solana Beach, CA, 92075 United States (map)

For the first time we are offering a Pillbox-Making Workshop, where you will make your own silk pillbox from start to finish!  Students will learn the technique of blocking, wiring and finishing a buckram frame as well as how to cover the frame in silk, and finish it to their size. 

Jill will walk you through the process from start to finish, as well as demonstrating a variety of trimming techniques to help you finish your hat. All materials to block and trim your hat are included in the price of the class.

In our best attempt to accommodate all students' color preferences, we will email you with your options when you register. Students are welcomed and encouraged to bring their personal sewing machines so as to learn the process of hat finishing on a machine they are familiar and comfortable with using (so you can continue on your hat-making journey from home). This class is designed for more advanced sewers and students who have taken our intro class.  

Class date and time:

  • Saturday, November 15th, 10:00am - 4:00pm

Cost of the workshop: $248.00

Sign-up through our online checkout, or call us at the store 858.876.6353. Class size is limited to six students. Please feel free to email us with any questions you may have.
