Hello all hope you all had a great summer in spite of the weather! Looking forward to fall and the upcoming courses, there is a brand new co-hort starting on Tuesday September 23, 2014 with the skirts section. So if you have been planning to get into the program this is the perfect opportunity to do so, the skirts is the best place to start because they are the simplest garment to draft and sew giving an opportunity to start on the journey to achieving the perfect fit!
Skirts sewing class will start later in the fall on November 1, 2014 to December 6, 2014 (with November 29 off). This is an excellent way of improving sewing skills by creating 6 skirts in 5 days! Amaze yourself at how much can be accomplished in a short period of time.
The intermediate or sleeves course starts on Friday September 19, 2014. This is the drafting portion and is needed to take the sewing section in the new year. There is a group of very talented ladies in this class who are grasping the fitting process very well creating very nice garments.
The tops sewing course starts on Saturday September 13, 2014 to October 18 (with October 11 off). This course puts the theory into practice teaching students how to fit and finish sleeveless tops. Please register early we need at least 6 to run the class.
The advanced or book 2 class starts on Thursday September 18, 2014. This talented group of ladies is heading towards their Italian diploma completing book 1 the first three sections of book 2 and now will be creating more challenging dress styles including a bustier mock up! It has been my privilege to teach this class for the past 3 and half years, they are more than just students I count them among my friends.
