Join Linda Lee and Louise Cutting During Their Sewing Getaway
Haberman Fabrics in Royal Oak, Michigan, is sponsoring a fabulous Getaway Sewing Weekend featuring Threads authors Linda Lee and Louise Cutting. They will lead you through an incredible hands-on, sewing-oriented learning experience filled with inspiration and discovery.
The weekend will begin on Thursday evening, March 25, with a Cocktail Party at 6:00. During the party, you’ll enjoy a Trunk Show from Linda’s Sewing Workshop and Louise’s Cutting Line Designs as well as from their exciting new Shapes Pattern Line collaboration. You’re invited to attend the cocktail party even if you can’t make it to the rest of the weekend.
The Getaway Weekend itself will begin on Friday, March 26, and run through Sunday, March 28, and will be devoted to sewing techniques, fitting, alternative wardrobing, garment making and lots of individualized help. Linda and Louise will assist you in making the right pattern adjustments for a good fit. Throughout the weekend, they will demonstrate easy and time-saving sewing techniques to take your garment making to a higher level. You will find that many ideas will transfer to your other garments. Enjoy and benefit from being with others who share your passion.

I recently purchased the 2009 Threads magazine archive DVD. I already have an extensive collection of Threads magazines from issue #15 but what I lacked was an index of articles. In all these years I have only made two projects from the magazine and the first was a knitting project and the second was a stencil project. I learned how to sew 43 years ago but I am a very sporadic sewer so I have to review all the time. The beauty of the DVD is that I can find every article ever featured in Threads on a particular subject. It is interesting to see that there isn't just one solution. You can try out several different techniques. One thing that I wish you had done was to make the corrections to any mistakes in sewing instructions that readers pointed out.
