Cold and snowy -- perfect sewing weather!  We have wools and flannels for
those final winter projects and plenty of cottons, silks and linens to get
a jump on spring.  We also have three great classes this month to brush up
on old skills and learn new ones.

"Tips and Tricks of the Trade" from 10am to 12:30pm and "Taming Knit Terrors"

Draping is a method of patternmaking for fashion design that permits free and

create a muslin bodice.
