Mark Your Calendars for ASG Conference
Hyatt Regency St. Louis, at the Arch
July 24 - 28, 2014
I am so excited! I hope you will be excited for me, too.
I will be teaching at the American Sewing Guild National Convention in St. Louis in July!!
My friend Ruth C insisted I send in a teaching proposal, so I did, and they accepted me. I will be teaching 3 different classes over the 4 day convention, with one repeat. They are:
Shoes As Stylish As You: We will cover a shoe with fashion fabric and your choice of embellishments, thus learning the techniques you will use to have a wardrobe of shoes to match your wardrobe of garments. The class project will finish as a pincushion. You may remember my Threads article on this topic.
Marfy Magic For You: This is a trunk show of Marfy garments with a discussion of how to choose, use and acquire the patterns. If you read my blog, you know I love Marfy, and it is so much fun to spread the love. This is the class I'll repeat.
Clever With Your Needle: Specialty Hand Details: Again, if you read my blog, you know I love to use hand details on my garments, and this will introduce them to you and discuss just why and when we would want to use them. In a hands-on setting, we will learn to put a hand-stitched lining into a coat or jacket, make a personalized medallion to use in a coat/jacket lining, try some hand topstitching and saddle stitching, buttonholes, and some other fun details. Here's a photo of the type of thing we will be talking about and trying.
So, if you are even thinking about going to Convention, think hard! I want to see you all there, and get to meet you IRL! When you decide, I want to know about it, so we can plan to meet.
