My sister loves to sew baby blankets and gifts but doesn’t have a machine she likes to sew with at home. Recently I invited her to take a Sew Basics class at Modern Domestic. My goal was to get her comfortable on the Bernina machines we have in the classrooms here so she could drop in for Open Sew and the Friday night Sew-cials.

When I started working at Modern Domestic I made a promise to myself to start sewing more of my own clothing. The first week I was there I made a scarf, but I really wanted to make some apparel. I had my eye on the Colette Jasmine Blouse which I thought would look great in the Liberty’s Tana Lawn Wiltshire in green.
Little basket + long handles = Social Tote!
Carolyn Friedlander designed this basket pattern with Anna Graham (of Noodlehead) and it could not be more perfect for keeping project supplies together, including threads and closures. Or imagine keeping one next to your machine for those small bits that tend to get lost on your table.
We are so excited to introduce you to our amazing staff and teachers. Thanks to Rebecca Powers for collecting, compiling and writing our teacher profiles.
Diane Gilleland learned to sew in grade school with weekly lessons from her mother, a college Home Economics major. During her college years and through her thirties, sewing “was mostly about hemming things or making a Christmas gift here and there.”
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to take Katie Pedersen’s Modern Crazy Piecing Workshop at Modern Domestic. Katie and her friend Lotta, who helped teach our class, spent the day inspiring us and sharing their secrets for how to make exciting crazy pieced quilt blocks. By the first hour of class the walls were filled with colorful strips!
