Sewing Pros – A retreat just for you!

Nothing shows your fitting, design and sewing competence more than the clothes you make and wear for yourself.  Linger after the ASDP conference for two days of  planning and building your wardrobe at Steve’s Sewing on the outskirts of Philadelphia.  In state of the art classrooms, work with Rae Cumbie and Pamela Leggett as your fit and design consultants.  Sew and fit mock-ups that suit your shape and lifestyle.  Make a productive plan for your stash.   Morning and lunchtime conversations will explore knits in your core wardrobe, travel wardrobe planning, artful garments, and the power of repetition as a way to build a hardworking but creative wardrobe.  Sizing shells from Pamela’s Patterns and Fit for Art Patterns will be available if you wish to speed up your fitting process.  Hotel accommodations at the Hilton Doubletree are directly across the street from the store, and we will arrange your transportation from the ASDP conference hotel at no charge.

The cost will be $250 and will include lunch each day.  Full registration information and a brochure will be available at and here at any day now. Call Rae at 410 377-0706 for more information or keep watching this space.

Doesn’t this sound like fun, just come sew with your other ASDP friends! There are even machines available if you don’t want to bring yours along.  Not an ASDP member?  Come make some new friends.  Either way, I hope you will join us.

Fit for Art is also offering its annual Eureka! Pants Professional Licensing event in Baltimore December 8-12.  We would love to have you join us for an exhilarating week.  Here is what one of last year’s participants, ASDP member Edye Sanford, said:

“I am so glad that I chose to become a E!PtF licensee.  After the five-day class, I was able to hit the ground running and start making great-fitting pants for my clients right away.  Without even doing a direct promotion of my new skills, casual conversations with some of my current clients gave me three E!PtF jobs within weeks of my certification.”  

Watch our site for more testimonials and make your reservations now!  It will be the best thing you do this year for your career.

All the best,  RAE
