I have been shopping at Harts since I was in the 7th grade, when I purchases three yards of while poly satin for my Bride of Frankenstien halloween costume. If only I could have gotten my hair to stand straight up. I will be signing books and hanging out at Harts on Thursday September 3 from 4-6pm, and then when the shop closes the workshop will begin. Visit Harts website for more info and to register.
I am also extremely excited about being at The Crafters Studio in Santa Cruz, I haven't yet been but have been hearing about it from everyone on the left coast. They have an impressive class list, which includes everything from metal smithing to sewing to knitting and more. I will be there on Wednesday Spetember 9th from 4:30-6:30 signing books and meeting local stitchers and crafters, and then teaching from 6:30 to 9:30. The siging is open to the public, but space for the workshop is limited. You can get more info or sign up over here.
And yes, the Fall Dress pattern will be available as a download soon!
