February Workshops

Yea!  I'm back at Sew Memphis teaching 2 workshops in February.  One for adults and one for kids. The A-line skirt workshop was such a hit this fall, I had to do it again!  The kid sewing machine workshop comes out of our new book Sewing School 2:  Lessons in Machine Sewing due out this spring. 

If you live in Memphis, I hope you can join me - it's going to be fun! 
Favorite A-Line Skirt Workshop
Saturday, February 9 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and Wednesday, February 13 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Adults will learn how to make a versatile, comfortable A-line skirt. You will learn how to make a simple skirt that can easily be altered to suit your own tastes and needs. Learn the basics of using a commercial pattern, installing a back zipper, and getting a good fit. You’ll also be provided with a step-by-step guide so you can make the skirt again and again! This is a good entree into making adult clothing for both beginners and those who are already comfortable on the machine.

Me and My Sewing Machine
Saturday, February 23 from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
Ages 7 and up, please.

Kids everywhere are using sewing machines! Let Sewing School authors Amie Plumley and Andria Lisle teach your child the basics: how a sewing machine works, sewing safety, threading a machine, and making bobbins. Students will learn all of the above while creating cute pincushions to use in future projects!
