Can you believe she is sitting in the dirt in that dress?
The local stores are gearing up for the holidays with several classes; from learning to make great gifts to beautiful ways to decorate your home for the holidays. I've signed up for several classes just to improve my sewing skills and learn new sewing techniques. I'm also starting a beginner's level quilting class. This is totally new to me -- I've sewn most of my life, but not one quilt.
Today's class was "Easy Zippers" taught at Sew Contempo in Houston (Clear Lake area) and covered 5 different zippers using techniques from the fashion industry rather than the way we learned way back in Home Economics class. I still managed to screw up the invisible zipper beyond belief -- zippers are my sewing bane. I go out of my way to avoid a pattern with zippers.
In the meantime, I've been busy with WIP - Yay! Here's an update.
