Fashion Show Update +

wc silk and saffron 2013

Hello A-Team:

Attached please find the 2013 Silk and Saffron Flyer. Print as many as you need. There has been a change in timing. All models need to be at the school by 3 PM on Friday. We will be having a rehearsal. I will keep you informed throughout the week as to further changes.

You just gotta know….in both courses: Drapingand the First Pattern, everyone is hard at work trying to finish their project for the Fashion Show. Don’t push it. Good work takes time !!!!!!

I was at Home Goods in Parkway Plaza last Friday. They had a whole bunch of Martha Stewart tomato keepers for $2.99 each. These keepers are PERFECT for pin cushions. This is a safety issue. By using these containers, little fingers, dogs, cats, etc., cannot accidently swallow a pin or needle.

I want to suggest: if you are thinking of taking my summer course, Working With Asian Garment Patterns, buy the book now. You have a choice of 3 books. They are sold on I do have copies of these books in the classroom. You are welcome to look at mine, before you buy one of your own. You only will need only one of the 3 books. Each book has different patterns in them. We will only have time to make up one pattern. Make SURE you buy your book in English. They do come in both Japanese and in English. Each book is less than $20. All three books were written by Hisako Sato.
