An Ending and a Beginning

Dear A-Team:

It is always a sad time for me when a class comes to an end. So much learning in such a short time….one semester. The biggest lessons get learned in an instant. The lesson that stands out from my Flat Patternmaking class came from one student’s Learning Outcome (SLO): “Always follow the suggested fabric code. There is a reason for it.” All semester long we used wovens. Some students used knits in their final project and it didn’t exactly work out the way they wanted it to.

In Using your First Commercial Pattern the following picture really hits the nail on the head. I always say to make any garment your own by changing the pattern to suit your desires…………… Check out the label on this cat coat. I LOVE THIS.

Hello Spring 2013 !!!!!!!! Come to class this week, Wednesday or Thursday (January 30th or 31st), with at least the syllabus printed. In this way, you can take notes on the back side.

I am looking for someone who owns a Bernina Artista 200. I have some questions I would like to ask.
