2 1/2 Weeks till our Fashion Show !!!!!!

Dear A-Team:

If you don’t come to class, I can’t tell you the latest news concerning our fashion show. Come to class !!! Work in class !!! Feel the love !!! Get the group’s expert opinions !!!!! There are things you need to know !!!!!

Please remind your students that only BOTTLED WATER in a bottle is allow on the second floor, no food or other liquids. We have received complaints about food and drinks being left in the classrooms. If you have a student that needs to eat or drink something for whatever reason, please send them to the student area on the first floor.

Warren set a price for the 2000 Saturn LS. It’s a great car. If you are interested, ask me in class. I finally got your answers.

Draping on Body Doubles: I caught a show on TLC Cox 46. It is called: Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids. I can believe all the drama. I couldn’t believe all the strapless draped gowns and cocktail dresses. You just gotta see this this show !!! IT is just so full of draping ideas. I will be bringing the fashion show draping fabrics. We also will be draping a ½ size wire table topper. What fun. So much to talk about. Of course, we all are working on our final projects. Some of you need to check in with me to see what you are missing from the semester. The final two nights of class have been cut. I am hoping that you all will join me for a no host dinner at Denny’s on MIDWAY and Pt. Loma Blvd on Monday, June 4th @ 6 PM. I need a head count for Denny’s.

Industrial Tailoring: This past week we marked our jackets so that the markings will help us sew up the jackets, and NOT show on the fashion public side of the garment. WE all had a LOT of homework this weekend. On Tuesday, I will be doing Sew Along with Joanie Classes in the making of Bound Buttonholes. Thursday, I will be going on to make the front pockets. Again, this will be a Sew Along with Joanie class. So this weekend, you need to finish cutting, press on your fusible hair canvas, and marking your fabrics.

Summer Flyers are now on the Blog: www.sewalongwithjoanie.wordpress.com Check them out !!!! We will be having online registration. Make SURE you have your CSIDs card !!! Go to the office and request one, if you don’t.

Because we are in the middle of the season for Dancing with the Stars, I thought you might enjoy this AGELESS video: http://www.youtube.com/v/ab9i0s4WEY0?version=3&feature=player_detailpage. Grab a cup of coffee and relax for 5 minutes !!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEXT WEEKEND, CENTRAL IS HAVING AN EVENT WITH JOHN DEER. I AM GOING. I THINK YOU ALL SHOULD GO TOO. CHECK OUT THEIR FLYER with additional information put in by me !!!!! I couldn’t fit in that we will be working with top of the line Baby Lock Sewing/Embroidery Machines: The Ellegante 3 and the Ellisimo. What a treat to be able to try out these machines before you buy one.

See you all in class this week !!!! Lots of things happening !!!!! Lots of things to talk about !!!
