Contributing Editor Takes the Stage on Threadbanger
Kenneth D. King is a man of many talents. He’s a professor at F.I.T. (Fashion Institute of Technology) in Manhattan, a couture designer, and a Threads contributing editor. (He can also be outrageously funny. I never miss a chance to attend one of his classes.)
Not long ago Kenneth showed up on an episode at Threadbanger. The theme was Oscar Week and Corinne and Rob, the hosts, featured the film “The Duchess.” In keeping with the theme, Kenneth chose a black velvet cloak project. In this video he demonstrates how to take a pattern from an existing garment and then gives some very useful tips about sewing with satin and velvet, using a walking foot, and pressing velvet. Here’s your chance to attend a class by the King for free.
