Advance your Sewing Skills in 2024

Sew Successfully Retreat

We are always looking for ways to bring our successful sewing strategies to your garment sewing practice.  Why not take advantage of them?  We have several learning opportunities coming soon that will interest you!

Pam Damour’s 12th Annual Webathon

We love participating in Pam’s annual webathon and this year will be no exception.  Plan to join in the fun on Friday Jan. 12 (noon to 12 a.m.) and Saturday Jan. 13 (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.).  There will be 24 hours of great projects and presentations to tune into! The live webathon is free to all, so join Pam on Zoom during the webathon hours (meeting ID is 847 5233 4126). Carrie will be leading a trunk show of possibities with one simple jacket pattern – the Tabula Rasa Jacket of course – on Friday at 3 p.m.  Perhaps it will inspire you to join us in our virtual Tabula Rasa Jacket Class, offered through the end of the month for a special low price.  Sign up for Pam’s newsletter to receive invites for all of her webinars.

Fabric Mart series: Sew Great Clothes 

Join Rae as she introduces her tried and true strategies to sew better garments.  Fabric Mart is hosting this series of 6 virtual classes.  Purchase all six with the early bird discount, or purchase only the ones that interest you most.  Each 2 hour class will be filled with techniques and strategies to help  you gain confidence as a garment maker.  We begin this series at 6:30 on Tuesday, January 30 and will offer another installment every other Tuesday evening through April 9th.

We hope to see you at at least one of these winter and spring events! Of course we would love to welcome you to France this summer as well.  This year there are 2 different weeks to entice you and we know you will love either one.  Take time to read the descriptions for a week in France of touring and Embellishing Fabric (July 17-24) or of Bookmaking with Fabric and Paper (Aug. 16-23). Share this newsletter and encourage your friends to come along for these unforgettable adventures.

Happy Sewing and Learning, Carrie & Rae
