Gretchen Hirsch teaching at our West Coast Workshop (and more workshop news!)


Gretchen Hirsch will be teaching at our upcoming Weekend Sewing Workshop in Pacific Grove, California, and I'm thinking I need to get her to bring a few vintage swimsuit patterns and give us all a lesson. Who's with me?? I'll even volunteer to spend an afternoon at Spandex World (not as crazy as it sounds) stocking up on some fabric for everybody! We still have a few spots left in the February 1-3, you can read more about it here and register over here...

We also STILL have a few spots left in our October Workshop, which is in New York City (with the genius Liesl Gibson in attanedance!), and just a few short weeks away. The weekend was full but a few people had to cancel last minute, so now's your chance! One spot even comes with a room at The Chelsea Lodge, but you'll have to act fast on that one... let us know if you can make it!

Speaking of all things workshop, some of you have emailed asking what our plans are for 2013. Leslie and I have been agonizing over the decision to take a few seasons off, but we just have to do it. Bee and TC have been troopers, but they need me on weekends right now, and I have just signed on to some big projects that are going to require a lot of my attention, including a top secret fabric project AND that book of essays about my childhood that I've always wanted to write. It was an especially tough call to make, because I LOVE these workshops and all of the friends that I have made and get to see every year.

So when we say that this is your chance to get yourself signed up, we really mean it!
