Did Everyone Watch the Oscars????

Hello A-Team:

This is just going to be a short post to test the waters and make sure the posting works on the website.  I know, according to my Graphic Artist, there is STILL work to be done.  As I always say:  Good Work Takes Time.  Stay tuned !!!!

As to the Oscars:  Lady Gaga should have won.  Even her gown with the pants was a class act !!!!!

Notes from the Classes:  

Drafting:  come with your measurements.  We will be making our first bodice draft.  Even if you didn’t finish taking your measurements DON’T STRESS.  Bring what you have.  You will be able to finish up in class.

Tailoring:  We are finishing up our muslin toile fittings.  Make sure you have cut your Tailoring Operations Portfolio Pattern Pieces.   Besides the toile fittings, we will be fusing and and marking our fabric portfolio pattern pieces.  Remember to bring your press cloth.

Collections:  Continue to work on your garments for the Mesa Fashion Show.

Sew Like a Pro (NIGHT):  We will be burning fabrics for the purposes of identification.  We will also be fusing, overcasting, and marking our Advanced Portfolio Fabric Pattern pieces.   Remember to bring your press cloth.

Sew Like a Pro (DAY):  We already burned fabrics for identification purposes.  We will also be fusing, overcasting and marking our Advanced Portfolio Fabric Pattern pieces.   Remember to bring your press cloth.  We just didn’t have enough time to finish up last week.

Sewing Fundamentals 1:  We will be having guests in the classroom.  Central Sewing is coming to work on some of our machines.  Paula Rupley will be available to answer any questions you may have.  Perhaps she will talk about machine maintence.   I have a lecture demo on marking.  We will be marking our fabric patterns.  It will be a busy night.

Sincerely,

Joanie
