New Sewists!

We had a great group of new sewists at Make It Sew last night-well, there were varying degrees of experience, from absolutely none to one who made a very nice cover for her eBook reader-without a pattern!
Anyway, they all started with a pillowcase, complete with hot dog roll and french seams. One student made two so she could welcome her husband home with a beautifully made bed, one made a boy themed case, another a girl themed and then there was a great bold print paired with batik.
Would it surprise you if I said they all chose a different skirt pattern for next week’s class?! SEW ON!!

And just in case you haven’t seen the new “skins” at Make It Sew-here’s a picture. I’ll be showing the Sophia Trench with one of them for the lining at Fashion Sewing Club in April.

Tailoring Tools Class

Here are the samples for Tailoring Tools. We’ll explain how to use all of our favorite tools and then everyone can make a set of their own. Lots of us used to have them but got rid of them from lack of use, but they can improve your garments and make pressing tasks easier. And it’s always more fon to work with lovely tools 🙂

Join us at Make It Sew on Friday, May 18 at 10 am. $20-everything but outer cotton fabric included-we supply wool, lining and stuffing. Call 952-767-0701 to reserve your spot.

We Are Material Girls!!!

Thanks to all of the loyal Sew Amazing customers, Fashion Sewing Club has taken off with great success. To manage all that we’d like to do, we’ve decided to call ourselves “Material Girls” and see where it takes us. At this website you can find the schedules for the various locations of Fashion Sewing Club and classes that are taught by Debbie, Kristin and Laurel. For now you can register for the classes by emailing us. You can also register by calling the store where the class is held.  You’ll need to pay at the class. We hope to be able to handle payment online soon.
We’ll also be blogging about things we’re doing, events around the Cities and anything we come across that we think might be interesting to sewing divas like yourself.
