There are still spaces available for her Trunk Show Friday evening, give us a 
call to RSVP.

     Age is nothing but a number when it comes to looking fabulous. And no 
     one does it better than The Sewing Workshop Pattern Collection. From 
     beautiful fabrics to stunning colors, this showcase of handmade garments 
     will challenge you to rethink how you dress and what you want to sew. 
     The Sewing Workshop is known for its carefree chic combinations of daring 
     fabrics, textures and patterns in layers of drape and shape. Linda will 
     interpret how to read the trends of the moment and fit those concepts into 
     making real clothes for you. You will leave knowing a lot more about fabrics, 
     where to buy the good ones, how to work with them in unique ways and how to 
     blend them into your wardrobe, eventually building a core wardrobe of quiet 
     confidence with the add-ons that have plenty of personality.  

     Cost:  $25, $10 for workshop students

3-hour session by Leslie Ashcraft cost - $45 class size limited to 6

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 
exclusively to help women identify what has changed about their maturing female 
forms and how those changes are reflected in the fit of their garments.  (For this 
session, we will concentrate mainly on the female form from the waist up.)  After 
this class, you will know what has been causing your fitting disasters and what 
pattern alterations are necessary to prevent any more.

Supply list:

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
