If you're in Manhattan on November 18, stop by the FIT Barnes & Noble bookstore for a meet-and-greet with Kenneth. Don't forget to wear your favorite faux fur garment.


We’re thrilled to announce that Threads contributing editor and couturier Kenneth D. King has an all-new DVD, Smart Sewing: Fake Fur. In the 99-minute DVD, also available as a video download, Kenneth demystifies the process of sewing faux fur and walks through the steps to make a chic jacket from start to finish.

Anyone with fundamental sewing knowledge can learn to make faux fur garments from patterns intended for standard fabrics. With this DVD, you’ll discover the secrets of sewing invisible seams, stable closures, hems, linings, and closures on knit- and woven-back fake furs. Smart Sewing: Fake Fur features materials from Shannon Fabrics, suppliers of high-end synthetic furs.
