August Club coming soon-July photos

First, the details:

August Club dates-

Saturday, August 10, 10:30, Treadle Yard Goods

Tuesday, August 13, 10:30, Treadle Yard Goods (no Tuesday evening meeting)

Thursday, August 15, 10:30, SR Harris, Burnsville (yes, this is the 3rd Thursday 🙂

Second, the good/bad news:

KATIE IS MOVING TO NORTH CAROLINA! We are happy for her family’s new opportunities but sad to say goodbye. She’s busily getting ready for this month’s move. Her energy, style and smile will be missed-best of everything, Katie!

Third, the ask:

Have you ever wanted to get up in front of everyone and present your garments/latest foray into fashion sewing? Consider signing up to present at a Fashion Sewing Club meeting! You would do just what we do for one month-sew and present 3-5 garments at our four Club meetings and get paid-just like us. It could be a wardrobe capsule, variation on a theme, several patterns from one designer, etc.

Call or email us to sign up!! We are excited to try something new–

(Thanks for the idea-you know who you are ;))

May Club Highlights

May Club saw many of us sewing for warmer weather. Above, Katie used a simple pattern, the Jalie Dolman Top/Dress with a bit of fussy cutting to make a knit dress that can go many places.

Debbie is ready for sun in her linen version of Simplicity 8640. She swapped out the patch pockets and added inseam pockets instead.

Sew Chic was at the Puyallup show and caught Katie’s attention-this is the Gatsby Pant and Portrait Blouse. Score!

Kristin had fun mixing patterns with the Harriet Jacket from StyleArc in a scuba knit and Burda 6434 in a vintage silk print. The skirt is Simplicity 2058 in an activewear knit. Perfectly packable!

All of the above patterns and more are reviewed under the “Club Sheets and Garment Photos” heading in the menu bar. Our next meetings will be June 8 and 11 at Treadle Yard Goods and June 13 at SR Harris, Burnsville.
