I was checking out the Threads website and saw the announcement of a new fitting DVD by Kenneth King. It is priced at $149. Looks like there are 3 CD's in the pkg.

There is a short clip where Kenneth talks with Judith Neukam about the new DVD.

"Threads Insiders will have exclusive access to bonus video content such as an in-depth interview with Kenneth, and 13 essential lessons and tips with the renowned instructor".

I think this is very exciting as I will never be able to take a live class with Kenneth so this is the next best thing.

It would be interesting to hear a review by someone who has seen the DVD's. Kenneth King is a fantastic and I love the way he sewes. Expensive DVD's though. Would LOVE a review :-)

Looks interesting, but not at that price. $20 Craftsy classes have spoiled me.

Yes, I've looked at this but it's rather too pricey for me.
Hopefully someone will write a review. I'm just wondering whether the bonus video content etc is something I already have. It really annoys me when you end up paying twice for the same thing.

If you are an ASG member they are running a discount at $119 with free shipping. Offer is good thru Friday May 24th. My Houston ASG Chapter just sent out the email. Has anyone seen a review of the series? I'm interested, but have never seen anything from him.

Advice?

I bought it and watched all three DVD's in one sitting. It is very good. Kenneth covers a lot of ground. I took Lynda Maynard's Craftsy class and really loved the method she uses. Kenneth's method is very similar.
The only thing that I wondered about was the blouse pattern he used to demo the various alteration. If I remember correctly it was a longer wrap type blouse with a belt. I plan on watching it again and will get back to this post with more information.,

I bought it as a present to myself for surviving the semester and I used the ASG discount. I'm a neophyte at fitting so I will write reviews when I have watched the DVDs. I'm impressed, AdaH, that you've already watched all of them, and in one sitting. I can't sit still through a 90 minute movie.

I watched it again and then wrote a review. I am amazed at how much effort it takes to write a review.
I am very interested in how Kenneth fixes the diagonal lines on the back leg just under the butt. Very different approach. I am going to ask my sewing group to watch that portion and then try it out on me.
The other new to me technique is something he calls the grid. It is used when a drag line doesn't cross a seam. There is an article in Threads Feb/Mar 2010 that explains this technique. This article is included in the DVD along with 3 others. All printed in Threads 2010

Have you posted your review anywhere? It would be really nice to read it!
And by the way, can anybody tell me what ASG is? (Somebody mentioned being an ASG.member.)
Thank you for any help.
