Opera Southwest needs several volunteers to handstitch costumes for AMLETO. Costumer 
Anna Constanz has designed 20+ costumes in the Edwardian style and needs additional 
help in her old town area studio.

If you like to sew and have a few hours to donate, you'd not only be helping the opera 
Company, but also get behind-the-scenes experience with an opera production, fitting 
garments to singers etc.

Please contact Anna at 980-5057, or email Robin at rkaplan222@gmail.com and she will
put you in touch.


November 1st: "Fitting Solutions" with Leslie Ashcraft, 9:30am - 1:00pm, $50

        Are you tired of buying pattern after pattern, searching for "the one" that actually 
        fits?  Or, have you stopped sewing for yourself entirely because your garments gap 
        open at the center front or hang like muumuus?  This fitting class has been created

            Sewing machine, thread, pins, scissors and cloth tape measure.

        4 yards of 45" or 60" white muslin fabric, an indelible sharpie marker, a quilter’s 
        straightedge and a jacket pattern of your choice.  (Be realistic about your size; 
        alterations are easier if you're somewhat close.  Keep in mind that for purposes of 
        creating a well-fitting, structured jacket, darting and princess lines are your
