Upcycle Sewing Designs Workshop with Paganoonoo


Michelle Paganini and I have been following each other on social media for a while and recently connected via zoom. She is a fellow course creator and a great resource for simple, actionable and scalable sewing designs for upcycled products.


Michelle will share how she came to be an upcycle fashion designer and developed a line of upcycle sewing patterns for home sewists. Her flattering and wearable designs are best described as “arty and classic”. Her trunk show will leave you inspired and ready to create! Michelle will also demonstrate a simple upcycle.
