    July 29, 2015 by Britex Fabrics

Interested in participating? Email us at [marketing@britexfabrics.com] for further information.   When one thinks of Britex it is not usually first on the list to think of historical costuming.

Costume College (or lovingly referred to by those in the know as CoCo) is a long weekend conference held in Southern California that features workshops, demos, and lectures geared towards costuming and historical sewing. Each of the three days is also packed with events, such as an Ice Cream Social and an evening Gala, where attendees can wear and show off their beautiful creations. There also happens to be a pool party...   VivienCollage   Continue Reading
