Copying Ready-to-Wear Top or Shirt

Mary McCarthy is an accomplished dressmaker whose passion for sewing spans many years. As a sewing educator, she has a wealth of knowledge to share about the art and skill of sewing and fitting beautiful garments. She teaches all levels, from beginner to advanced couture.  She is the author of COPY IT! Duplicate Your Favorite Clothes. This clear and concise guide will show you how to create a pattern from a ready-to-wear garment without taking it apart. The illustrations, combined with Mary’s straightforward writing style, will guide you through the process with ease. Includes directions for a camp shirt, tank top, pants, and skirt, plus other garment details such as darts, pleats, collars and more. You can bring a shirt/top you want to copy and learn the technique

Organizer Baskets

Pamela Leggett's Organizer Baskets

Decorative baskets are all the rage these days. You can now make them to match your sewing room. You will have the option of making the basets with a basic 4-thread serger or a traditional sewing machine. Kits will be part of your registration. Pamela Leggett of Pamela's Patterns kindly gave us permission to share this project with the attendees at the retreat.







Flat Sewing Sister Bookmark

Sew _____________________  name your sewing buddy…..perhaps your ultra ego…..or your ???#$@% doll when things go wrong. It's fun to take these around with you and take selfies/pictures with them and maybe share with your guild. Especially in Florida, we have lots of snowbirds and this will be a fun way to keep in touch.
