Visit Fit for Art Patterns at a sewing event near you!

Fit for Art Patterns appears at national and regional sewing, quilting and fiber art shows and conferences as exhibitors and teachers. In our booth, we offer complimentary jacket sizings, as well as 30-minute pants fittings for the Eureka! Pants that Fit for an additional fee. You can see samples of wearable art jackets, knit tops and Eureka! Pants that Fit; purchase all the great Fit for Art products; take a class with Rae Cumbie ; or see a trunk show at these events. Please see our Event Calendar for a listing of shows and other events that are currently scheduled. Let us know if there is an event in your area where our products and sewing philosophy might fit right in.

What does a pants fitting involve?

In the fitting session, we size you by putting our pre-made fitting shells on you, so it is helpful to wear a close-fitting top that can be tucked into the pants shell. After we’ve established the correct size, we do a pin fitting and write all the changes on what we call a fitting prescription. We go over every pattern change that we are recommending, so you will understand how to adjust your tissue pattern. Between the information in the booklet that comes with the Eureka! Pattern, our video tutorials and the fitting prescription, the pattern changes should be pretty straightforward. We try to get you 85 to 90% of the way toward a well-fitting pair of slacks. You will be empowered to make and tweak a mock-up with your adjusted pattern.  Then make pair after pair of Eureka! Pants.
