Workshop with Mary Ray

March 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Baltimore Chapter of the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals is pleased to sponsor a trunk show and one day workshop with sewing expert and instructor Mary Ray.  In addition to teaching apparel design and construction, Mary is a frequent contributor to Threads Magazine.  Look up her recent articles in Threads Magazine on making scrap lace to incorporate into a garment (issue #169) and on boro style stitching (issue #191).

Enjoy Mary’s Trunk Show featuring a selection of garments and accessories that inspire and teach about fabric, design, embellishment, and technique including award-winning pieces, garments that have appeared in Threads Magazine, and current projects using sustainable techniques. As she shows her work, she relates stories of her creative life and travels along the way.  Free for ASDP members, fee for non-members.  Friday, March 15th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

On Saturday, join the full day Scrap Lace Workshop.  What do you do with fabric scraps that are too small to use and too precious to throw away? Sew them together and make a new piece of fabric. In this workshop you will experiment with fabric, thread, and stitch combinations that can be used for small sections of a garment like a yoke or sleeves and learn how to use the technique to create large pieces. It’s a creative way to make your garments one-of-a-kind. Additionally, this technique can expand an amount of fabric that’s not quite enough for the project you want to make. Workshop fee includes continental breakfast, light lunch and beverages.  Saturday, March 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Click here to print the flyer and registration form.  Please register in advance for the workshop.

ASDP members and non-members are all welcome.
