FITTING WORKSHOP
June 19, 2024 - - - - - Fee: $47.00

Refine your fitting skills and elevate your sewing game in our upcoming workshop!
Sewing beautifully is one thing, but achieving the perfect fit takes your creations to the next level.
That's where the expertise of a professional fitter comes in. With an eye for detail and a knack for
adjustments, they transform garments into personalized works of art.

One of the key elements to grasp in the sewing profession is understanding fit—how
to assess it, adjust it, and comprehend the importance of those adjustments.


In our workshop, you'll learn the art of fitting garments like a pro. Bring along three garments
approved by the instructor for hands-on practice. I will professionally fit each garment and I will
explain the needed adjustments and explain the why behind each change.
The alterations of the
garments are not covered in the Fitting workshop only in the Alteration workshop.

While you may have the knowledge to complete alterations at home, others may require additional
guidance. That's where our Alteration workshop comes in handy. Sign up in our Alterations Workshop
to master the techniques needed to perfect your garments with confidence.

Keep in mind that certain projects may require more time than we can cover in one session. If needed,
additional workshops will be available to ensure you leave with garments that fit like a dream. Don't
miss out on this opportunity to refine your fitting skills and create garments that truly shine!

ALTERATION WORKSHOP
Wednesday, June 26, 2024 - - - - - Fee: $47.00

Enhance your alteration skills and level up your sewing expertise
in our upcoming Alteration workshops!

(This is not a repair class it is alterations.)

Mastering expert alterations is a breeze when guided by a professional. Attempting
alterations solo can often lead to frustration and inaccuracies. In our Alteration Workshop,
you'll learn the intricacies of making adjustments to garments previously fitted by the instructor.
While alterations from elsewhere are welcome, the final fit cannot be guaranteed.

Please note, the alteration class is tailored for intermediate to advanced sewers. If you're new
to quality clothing construction or lack expert training, we recommend starting with our beginner
sewing/tailoring and pattern making classes. While some alterations may seem daunting, with patience
and guidance from the instructor, you'll excel. Additionally, practicing alterations, at home, on your
own clothing can greatly enhance your knowledge and skills.

Doing this will also add to your development of questions for the instructor. Keep in mind that certain
alterations may require more time than we can cover in one session. Additional alteration workshops will
be available if needed, ensuring you can complete your alterations successfully. Don't miss this chance
to refine your alteration skills and craft garments that fit flawlessly!
