Hands-On Sewing Workshop with Sandra Betzina

Hours: Saturday->12pm-? and Sunday-> 9am-?

Join this small class for days of hands on sewing while you will create a pant, blouse or jacket from a new Today’s Fit pattern, something you will want to make again and again because it fits and is very designer looking. Sandra will bring with her fitting shells in all sizes so you can determine what size you want to make as well as any needed adjustments before you cut out. You are going to love not only making this blouse but wearing it. This blouse has a comfortable not tight fit and makes-up nicely in soft cottons, silks and linens – all with equal success. If you love to make jackets, this takes a blouse pattern and makes it into a jacket. If you you would like to sew something else you are more than welcome as well.
