Coming up is our last week before Winter Break. There is so much to do. So much to learn !!!!! HO! HO! HO! And before you know it, the Fall semester will be over !!!! See the right hand column of the blog for the NEW Spring 2015 flyers !!!! www.sewalongwithjoanie.wordpress.com. (I just don’t know who reads the blog from Facebook and who actually goes to the blog.)
Minal and Jocelyn need our help !!!!! In order for them to win the U design Triveni Design Contest, http://www.triveniethnics.com/udesign-contest-poll , you need to cast your ballot for whose designs you like the best. Take a look !!! The company had 16 designers from around the globe participate in the contest. I wish Minal and Jocelyn the BEST of LUCK !!!!!!
Sewing Fundamentals: We are still working on our final pant and shirt projects. I see real progress. I see everyone reading their pattern guides. Just realize you have a portfolio of ideas that may be different from what the pattern guide tells you to do. Feel free to do which ever technique feels more comfortable to you !!!! The pattern guide is just not a God !!!!
Sew Like a Pro: We continue to learn to be fussy about cutting plaids. I hear grumblings about how “you will never ever fussy cut anything.” I know, plaids are tough. BUT…..If you can do it with a plaid, you can do it with a giant print. Trust me, you WILL use these techniques. This coming Wednesday, we have the computer room 203 to make our croqui. This will help you with your future design projects. If I have NOT taken your croqui picture yet, bring a dark tight fitting t-shirt and dark tights. I can take your picture during class on Monday night. Wednesday, will be too late.
