Fitting is the key


Spring Sewing Contest Winner & Honorable Mentions

We have a winner! Congratulations Jo-Anne Coleman!

Your beautiful workmanship and your re-purpose of a scarf that you would probably never wear, re-purposing it into something which will be perfect for cold days in Canada was great. The Vogue 1569 tabard is not only spectacular but looks great on.

Fabric is a Mobious Shawl in hand woven wool, silk and mohair. The contrast is leather.
