Katy Patzel

Activewear Instructor

I'm so excited to introduce you to the amazing world of spandex and expand your sewing skills into a whole new category of garments—activewear!

Class Description

Anyone can sew their own clothes! It just takes a little imagination, some instruction, and practice.

Learn how to sew your own workout wardrobe in our How to Sew Activewear Sewing Intensive. Students learn key properties of activewear, how to select and work with performance fabrics, and how to make style modifications to totally customize your gym looks.

In this class, students sew 3 garments including a sports bra, workout leggings (or bike shorts), and jogger pants (or gym shorts). After class, students should feel confident to continue their activewear sewing journey at home.

As part of our Learn to Sew classes, sewing instruction is taught with an emphasis on key industry skills and techniques to create garments that look well-made. All of our sewing, fitting, and patternmaking classes are both fun and productive, instead of just one or the other. We encourage anyone who is interested in sewing clothes to join us for our sewing classes, whether you are strictly a hobbyist or interested in learning clothing construction skills to bring your original fashion designs to life.

Our How to Sew Activewear Sewing Intensive is like taking a 2-day sewing vacation, and we’ve taught wonderful students who have visited us from all over the world. We invite you to spend two days working with us in our inspiring and friendly studio. After this class you’ll start your week with lots of excitement to continue your sewing adventures at home!

Our Expertise and Approach

At Workroom Social, we teach adults how to sew clothes that fit their individual styles and unique body shapes and sizes.

We create a supportive and non-competitive environment in all of our classes. Perfection is never our goal in the classroom. Students should expect that their skills will improve with practice over time.

Our team of professional designers and sewists make garment sewing approachable, and it’s our goal to provide students with the confidence and knowledge they need to continue practicing sewing at home.

Our Belief in the Power of Sewing

Through sewing we build communities, stimulate creativity, and help improve women’s self-esteem and confidence by empowering them to sew the clothes they want to wear.

We work hard every day to promote a sense of accomplishment in our students and customers by reminding them of their abilities. Together we learn from each #sewingfail and celebrate every #sewingwin, no matter how small.

We use our shared passion for sewing to connect with those we might not meet otherwise, and we create opportunities for our students to develop relationships that go far beyond sewing itself.
