Wow this is the second last class! Hard to believe how quickly the time went, everyone was sad in class having come to this realization on Thursday. We will re-convene in March after the worst of winter is over, the date is to be determined.
On Thursday the class worked very hard on their final project, the jumper or dress, they learned how to install a lapped zipper. For many it was the first time they had ever installed a zipper, one even ventured into an invisible zipper! She executed the task with great ease and the zipper looked very professional even though my machine did not work quite as well as it should have the shank was too long for the invisible zipper foot making it difficult to demonstrate.... In any case the class worked hard and accomplished everything they were supposed to now it's on to the finishing next week.
It seemed like we could sew together a knit top, it may still happen if the class completes all the homework and comes in ready to go to the next step. The homework is quite minimal this week as the work needs to be done in class, if there is anything that is foggy please email me with your questions. Good job I re-read the hand out, there was a typo so please read below and correct it on your sheet LOL! Everyone makes mistakes every now and again!!!
Homework is to complete steps 3 and 4 on the hand out:
