NEW ONLINE SEWING CLASS CAPTURES THE DIY BRIDE'S DESIRE TO PERSONALIZE THEIR WEDDING WITH HANDMADE ELEMENTS
Rick Rack: Thread Therapy for Sewers presents the Princess Laserton Felt Flower Fascinator Headband
Online Sewing Class Featuring Popular Bridal Designer, Megan Hunt
Redondo Beach, CA/May 24, 2011 -- Rick Rack: Thread Therapy for Sewers taps into the DIY wedding trend with its first online bridal-themed sewing class featuring Megan Hunt aka Princess Lasertron, one of the most sought after designers for the modern bride.
"More and more brides are choosing to DIY and bring handmade elements into their weddings because they want to take an active, creative role in planning one of the most personal milestones in their lives," said Megan Hunt. "Putting time into creating something original for your wedding rather than outsourcing all of the work to hired vendors brings weddings back to what they are about--relationships, familial unity and support, and the building of a new life together. When brides include their own handiwork and DIY elements in their celebrations, they feel proud of themselves and more personally connected to the work that went into it."
Ms. Hunt's online sewing class for Rick Rack is called the Felt Flower Fascinator Headband. The project is inspired by classic French and Russian birdcage veils worn during the 1930's and 40's. These veils are making a comeback on the bridal scene. Ms. Hunt's version features her signature felt flowers, which she embellishes with free motion machine sewing, hand embroidery, buttons and other treasures.
"I love a birdcage veil because it is more like a bridal hat than a veil, and the height and dramatic effect can be easily manipulated with a comb or headband," said Megan Hunt. "Because they are a classic accessory, birdcage veils can create an elegant look, or they can be styled for a more offbeat, contemporary aesthetic. They can complement a traditional look as well as add some boldness to a modern gown. The birdcage veil headband project I am teaching in Rick Rack's latest online class is more of a fun and sassy accessory that you can make your own by integrating your favorite colors and ephemera."
