Come learn how to recover a lampshade from start to finish! You will learn how to make a custom pattern straight from the lampshade, use bias tape to seal the edges and more. Once you've made one, you won't want to stop!

All materials and tools included, except fabric. There will be an assortment of vintage lampshades to choose from. Please bring 1 1/2 yards of fabric. This could be vintage fabric, home decor, or quilting cotton. Please do not bring knit or stretchy fabric as this won't work as well.
