We are very pleased to welcome Pam Wall, guest speaker for August. Pam is an experienced seamstress who excels in garment making, accessories, quilting and more. Many of us who know her well would describe her work as couture. This coming month, Pam will talk about buying patterns and how to choose what size to cut out based on your measurements. She will help you look at how to determine what size pattern to actually cut out and how to mix sizes in the multi sized patterns so common now. Pam will talk about how to use a favorite top or bottom to help get started with the process. She will discuss how personal preferences and measurements allow anyone to make a garment that's going to fit comfortably. She will also touch on how a fabric influences your choices. The next Club meetings will be held on Saturday, August 5th at 10 a.m.; and Tuesday August 8th, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Club members are always encouraged to bring their show-and-tell items, whether it pertains to any theme we have going or not. We love to see what everyone is doing! Your reservation for your preferred time will help us with our planning.
The featured class is Serger Fun Club. It meets the second Thursday most months of the year, with a choice of 1-4 p.m. and 5:30-8:30 p.m. The next class sessions will meet July 13th. The purpose is to enhance serger skills, by trying a variety of techniques and threads while creating useful and fun projects.
