Spotlight: Mile High Workshop

Business growth can be tricky. We want to make you all of the undergarments for every era. But the reality is that the corsets and custom theatrical orders keep us plenty busy in-house here at Redthreaded. We lack the setup to get into true batch manufacturing. I am OK with that, because our slower, meticulous approach is one of the things which sets us apart. That's why I was so excited to discover local non-profit Mile High Workshop.

Classes at Costume College 2017!

Hi folks, I'm excited to announce that I will be teaching at Costume College for the very first time this year! Costume College is a 3-4 day annual conference held in Los Angeles in the summer.  So what will I be teaching? While I had many requests for workshops, I decided to stick with unlimited attendance lectures/demos this year. These will be easier for me to accomplish for my first year teaching, and it means there are no limits on class sizes. The Measure of a (Wo)ManCynthia SettjeMeasurements are essential for costuming, but taking your own can be an impossible...
