Steve Harvey

Hello A-Team!!!!

This Sunday’s Parade Magazine had a wonderful article about Steve Harvey and how he got to where he is today. If you got the Sunday Paper and happen to read this… know how great the article is. He says and I believe him:

“It’s never too late for success, and failure is a wonderful teacher; it teaches you what not to do the next time.”

Sew Like a Pro: Now that we have our garments to update, change, embellish, where do you begin? This was the theme for the week. We took before pictures and looked at what we are going to do. Now it is time to believe in yourself. Unsew, Resew. Make it work. There were 3 students I did NOT get to chat with, last Wednesday. So this Monday, Jewel, Rhonda, and Alicia will be first to get help. There are 4 students that did not take before photos for our hosts. Remember… do not have to take my opinions as gospel. You can critically think this out and do what you want to do. As Tim Gunn says: Make it work !!!!!

So I had a chance to visit the greatest trendy place in San Diego: Marshall’s. You can also visit TJ Max or Ross. I had the chance to see new ways to use neckline appliques. What fun !!!! Turn them upside down and stick them in your side seam. This gives you gorgeous instant peek-a-boo space right where you need it!!!!

Can’t wait for you to see a book that Maureen is going to bring in concerning Wardrobe Surgery !!!!! It is absolutely mind bending !!!!!!

Sewing Fundamentals: Last week, we created the corded seam, curve seam, flat-felled seam, and inset right hand corner seam. On Thursday, we practiced 5 serger seams on straight grain, bias grain and knit fabric. On Tuesday, you need to bring your McCall’s Pattern to class: M6972. We will also be practicing interfaced and faced–necklines. Next Thursday, we will be working with elastics and our jacket-bodice.

Fandango to Remember: Next Saturday Sew Pro’s is having their fall field trip to the LA garment district and to M & L fabrics. Call them if you want to go. 1-858-270-4700. If you are driving up, let me know and I will give you the address of where we will be meeting.

Links: The next Shake Out will be held on the third Thursday of October: October 16, 2014. Earthquake information.

Make sure you have earthquake insurance.

Sewing Newbies:

Royal Silk

The "Royal Silk" collection offers seven exceptional fabrics. This high-quality 100% silk was created thanks to the technical expertise of Scabal craftsmen.

The brushed finish of this fabric is similar to cashmere. It provides softness and warmth, despite its feather-light weight of just 210 g. The colours available range from beige to grey, with blue and violet in between.

Scabal’s mill visit, England

In England, amongst the green, rolling hills of Yorkshire, Scabal provides tremendous knowledge and expertise in cloth weaving, skills which have been handed down from generation to generation since the 16th century.
