Coming up in Sewing: Moulage, Quilting, and More!

There are lots of upcoming opportunities to get involved with sewing in the Fiber Studio, including two courses in the French pattern drafting method, moulage!

The first class (Moulage: French Pattern Fitting and Drafting, Sunday and Monday, March 24-25, 9 AM – 5 PM) introduces moulage, a form-fitting pattern that duplicates the figure and can be adapted to any pattern. The course is taught by visiting instructor Kenneth D. King —  a New York couturier, Threads magazine celebrity, author, and Fashion Institute of Technology professor who learned the technique from a Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture-certified pattern drafting teacher.

The class is almost full, so enroll today to secure your spot.

Then, on April 20-21, Kenneth’s good friend and colleague Ryliss Bod, owner of the Sewing and Design School in Tacoma will teach Moulage Part 2: Using Your Slopers. In this weekend course, Bod will show students how to adapt their new moulage slopers to any commercial pattern. Reserve your spot now!

More sewing classes are coming, too. Don’t miss Essential Hand Stitches on March 22. Beginners are welcome in this three-hour class, which will cover a variety of hand stitches commonly used in dressmaking, tailoring, and mending. Our new quilting classes, including Quilting Basics and a Quilting Block of the Month Club, have generated a lot of attention. Look for many new sewing classes for all sewing skill levels in April and May!

Serger News

The two Bernina Sergers in the Fiber Studio will now be permanently set up and threaded for 3-thread overlock stitches, so those who have taken the orientation can simply sit down and use them. One will have white thread, and the other will have black thread. You are free to change settings and colors if you need to, just return them to the neutral color and 3-thread setting when you finish. Since most of us use only the 3-thread overlock setting for finishing the inside of a garment, thread color is not an issue. I hope this will encourage all sewists to use the sergers regularly.
