In just a few short days it will officially be Summer, which means it’s time for dresses! We have so many great dress patterns in the shop, and many lovely fabrics to pair with them. We picked out a few of our favorite combos to get your creative juices flowing.
For the last few weeks we’ve had kids in the shop every day learning to sew and making projects.
Last night was this Summer’s first session of one of our most popular Kids Sewing Camps. Six budding sewists set up a table outside of the shop and displayed the items they’ve spent all week making in the One Week Boutique camp in order to sell at Last Thursday.
The latest session of my Classic Shirt Dress class wrapped up this week. I had such a great time with these ladies, and everyone made absolutely adorable dresses!
In July I’m teaching April Rhode’s The Staple Dress pattern. I’m so excited to be able to offer a dress class appropriate for beginning sewists.
I’m really looking forward to the kids sewing camps I’m teaching this summer. The majority of the classes I teach are geared toward adults, but I always have such a great time teaching kids. They are so imaginative, fearless, enthusiastic, and hilarious.
Summer will officially kick off in a few short weeks, so now is a good time to start thinking about beefing up your warm-weather wardrobe.
Pattern maker, fabric designer, and truly amazing quilter Carolyn Friedlander spent all day Monday at the shop teaching back-to-back classes.
