Last Week in Pictures +

Dear A-Team:

Last week was incredible!!!!! It was the final week of the Draping course. I am sad to see this class end. I did finish up the grading. I gave out 6 grades. Some students did the projects, but did not attend the class on a regular basis. I gave out a lot of incompletes. Remember the dinner tonight at 6 PM @ Denny’s on Midway and Pt. Loma Blvd.

There was the CE Graduation. I was thrilled to see MY students graduate!!!!!!!!! Congratulations to Mildred, Tania, Audrey, and Paola. The orchid was SO unexpected. Thank you very very much !!!!!

Also there was the Fashion Show/Open House.

I cannot thank everyone enough who made this event such a success. Cheryl, Gitta, Mildred and Maureen were the drapers. Jewel was commandeered for chair duty. Terrell ran the fashion show. Bonnie, and Annetrah modeled in the show. Faye and Carol made the table toppers. Lydia helped with the raffle. And Swadesh brought the beautiful roses !!!!!!! I am so honored !!!!! I was so excited, that I didn’t get a picture of our display table.

And in Tailoring; We finished up our pockets and started attaching our lapels and collars. You will be pleased to note, that I finally got my sleeves out of the jacket and the lining, so I can show you how to do this right. And I finally understand the new way to input the collar/lapel combo. It really is a piece of cake !!!!! You just need to follow your stitching line exact. I will show you on Tuesday !!!!!

Finally …. Three Embroidery Links: Very interesting angled carnation stitched with the photo stitch. Great Saying !!!!!! Also, check out the tutorial on printing and using placement templates
