Make a Hudson's Bay Blanket Coat

Handcraft a traditional Capote using an authentic Hudson's Bay Company Point Blanket (a blanket who's value alone makes this workshop an unbelievable bargain).

Spend the day immersed in the history of these blankets, following traditional pattern and hand-sewing the seams of your one-of-a-kind coat.  Experienced instructors show you traditional techniques, modern twists and ways to personalize your coat with unique embellishments.

All materials, including a Point Blanket, 100% wool for sewing and patterns to fit all sizes are supplied and no experience is necessary.
