Sewing Tools to Think About: Tapemeasures

Hello A-Team:  Welcome to the Spring 2019 Semester!

Check out the following photo.  It is worth a thousand words!  

These 2 tapemeasures are supposedly the same. But are they??????  The white one seams dead on when compared to the cutting mat.  The yellow one, seams to have shrunk.  Amazing.  Sometimes tapemeasures stretch; sometimes they shrink; when they are getting old.  Maybe the cutting mat was printed off.  Always check and replace your tapemeasure because you always need accurate measurements.  This tip was given to me, by Maureen.  Thank you, Maureen!!!  The picture is worth a thousand words !!!!

For my spring 2019 courses, the syllabi are under their respective pictures in the right hand column.  Just click on the picture to get an idea of the amount of learning I packed into each course.  Go to the menu and check the Downloads page.  There are useful things you can download and print from there.  Check your syllabus for needs.  The Links page has many links that you will find useful to buy texts at a better price or to look for your first fashion career position or internship. 

Come to class for a learning experience you will be using for the rest of your life!!!!!

Be Safe!
