Program and workshops
June 11: Program: Garment Construction Tips with Carol Edmonds, an expert seamstress who lives in the area. Carol will show you how to sew a T-top or blouse that fits you well and looks good. This begins long before you take scissors to fabric. Learn the basics of selecting good fabric, and preparing it for cutting and sewing. Learn how to fit a bodice. Finally, learn the finer techniques of construction that are never in the guide sheets or are buried in myriad sewing books. Knowing and using these refined techniques will result in a beautiful garment that looks like a fine ready-to-wear garment.
Workshop: Self faced T-shirt – Carol Edmonds recently returned from a workshop in France on garment construction. Learn how to apply binding to a bodice neckline and armscye like the professionals. This is a hands-on lesson where you will actually apply binding to garment. Bring your sewing machine with accessories, thread and regular sewing supplies such as pins, scissors, etc. The cost of the workshop $13 for members or $18 for non-members (which includes $3.00 for the bodice and binding kit). You must sign up ahead to insure you have a kit.
