Final Week of Fall 2012

Dear A-Team:

There were no classes on Monday, Martin Luther King’s Birthday. Hope you all went to the parade to support your fellow students. It is always fun to do and the weather was just perfect today. It is always sad for me when a course comes to an end.

Drafting and Flat Patternmaking has only one final class this coming week on Wednesday. I need to take pictures of your patterns and final sample dress.

In Using your First Commercial Pattern, some of you finished your PJs and already have started your second project. If you complete your second project, and I take a picture of it, I will give you 5 extra credit points.

Starting January 30th, 2013 is Draping on Body Doubles. The syllabus and all other downloads you need for this course, are all in the right hand column of the blog.

Starting January 31st, 2013 is Sewing Techniques Portfolio. Everything you need is in the right hand column of the blog. BUT NOTE: there are changes to the patterns and instructions. I will have handouts for you on the first day of class. There is also some supply changes. Bring paper to take notes.

February 2nd, 2013, we have a field trip to El Cajon Yardage Town and Central Sewing. Yardage Town to get your fabrics for the Portfolio and Denim for your dress form cover. And Central Sewing to purchase your dress forms, sewing machine bobbins, and Schmetz needles.
