December – Hosted June Colburn for a program for the Baltimore ASDP on Japanese Textile Traditions that included trips to two museum exhibits.

Also, a special word of thanks to those who invited us to present trunk shows and classes:

Grand Rapids ASG, Central PA ASG, Buffalo NY ASG, Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg MD, Needle and Thread in Gettysburg PA, and Lilies of the Field in Easton MD.

These Central PA ASG members worked on pants one weekend and everyone had a fine mock up and adjusted pattern by the time they went home.

Memories of Buffalo NY with their ASG Chapter in September!

We hope our travels take us to a city where we can catch up with you in 2017! We wish you great enjoyment sewing your modern wardrobe of fun separates with our jacket, knit and pants patterns this year.

All our best, Rae and Carrie

    I just finished typing my comments on the class and I lost all of it. The class was very fulfilling for me. I liked that you let us work at our own pace but you were there to help and answer questions. I was thrilled to come home with a completed top and I can’t wait to continue on the top that I brought home.

    Carrie, it was good to meet you; and as always Rae, I enjoyed your teaching style. You and Carrie are a wealth of information and although I took a little too long with all of the fabric I brought with me I was glad that you assessed each piece for me.

    Thank you!
