Happy Halloween!!!

We have seen some amazing costumes this year -- gruesome, spectacular and 
spectacularly gruesome.  Thank you to everyone who sent pictures of their 

Linda Littman is putting together a second Ribbon Embroidery class for either
November 10th or 17th, 10:00am-12:00pm.  If you're interested, please let us 
know which day works best for you.  We'll schedule it to accommodate as many
people as possible.  Send us an email (liz@nobhillfabrics.com) or contact Linda 
directly at ribbdesign@hotmail.com for more information or to sign up.

Leslie also has a new class this month, the "Holiday Frock Workshop!"  It's 
not too early to start thinking about that perfect LBD (or little RED dress) for 
the Holidays.  This is your opportunity to get fitting, construction and fine 
couture detail help from local sewing expert, Leslie Ashcraft, and have that perfect 
dress ready before the Holiday party (and gift shopping) season begins.  Thursday 
afternoons, November 1st, 8th and 15th.  Complete details at:



*  Cotton jerseys.
*  A yarn-dyed striped rayon/linen.  

*  An off-white silk/cotton metallic suiting.  Well-suited for a holiday frock.

We've had several requests for the sold-out peacock plume fabric and have
more on order.


"Holiday Frock Class"
Cost:  $150
When:  Thursdays, November 1st, 8th and 15th.

Scared of hidden zippers? Afraid to set a sleeve? Can’t make a dress fit smoothly 
over your bust? Have lining angst? This is the class for you!

The instructor suggests any of the following patterns, roughly ranked from easiest to most difficult:
    McCalls 6464
    Butterick 5554
    Simplicity 2648
    Butterick 5752
    McCalls 6463
    Butterick 5814.
    (The last two require boning…)

Or use a dress pattern of your choice, as long as it is not for a knit, a long formal 
or a bias style. The class is limited to 6 students with a cost of $150 for all 3 
sessions. (A $50, non-refundable deposit is required at Nob Hill Fabrics.) Students 
must provide their own sewing machines in good working order and all fabric and notions required for their pattern choices.

Students who elect their own pattern choice or need help and advice on pairing fabric 
with their pattern, may meet Leslie at Nob Hill Fabrics on Thursday, October 25th 
between 1 and 5 p.m. for help.

The instructor would like all interested students to e-mail, lesash@q.com, to sign up 
and let her know what pattern they plan to use and whether they have their fabric and 
notions already in hand. The teacher would like to know that fabric-pattern pairing is 
appropriate and provide pattern preparation instructions before the first session begins!

Basic sewing and pattern reading knowledge is required, as is familiarity with your 
personal sewing machine.
