2022 Programs

Our programs are geared to sewing personal wear to your taste. Whether you use a sewing machine, serger or cover stitch machine, we have you covered! We've got answers to handling those nightmarish slinky, stretchy or fussy fabrics & trims.

 

We cover patterning, fitting & creative touches for casual wear, active wear, sleep wear, lingerie, shape wear and swim wear. At every meeting we ask our Participants to share their tips, techniques and resource site finds. 


June 16we will have a training/practice session in learning how to film a  live tour(  which will be our July meeting.)  

July 21-  we will be virtually visiting our sewing spaces for an interesting tour of inside information about about fellow garment sewists.  No need to tidy up, seriously!  And all need not participate if not so inclined, but July should be great fun. 

July 30- Bra Bee 2022- July 30 to Aug 8 online classes

August 18, we will show a project, or at least the idea of what we plan to do, by perusing past and present Threads Magazines and sewing something that has inspired us.  If you don't subscribe, all libraries usually do , and have at least the current copy. 

Sep to Dec- Plans for the following months will be determined by the group.
