PR Weekend is a weekend get-away held to bring the PatternReview members closer, support local sewing-related businesses and share our love of sewing.
As always, this PR Weekend promises to be a fun-filled time with lots of activities, fabulous shopping, great food and plenty of time spent with fellow sewists, talking and learning and feeding on each other's creativity.
We had an awesome PR Weekend last year in Chicago and we are looking forward to another great event this year as we bring you some really fun guest speakers, tours, yummy food and of course GREAT Shopping!
Read on to find out what has been planned for you!
Our speaker this year is none other than Kenneth King! Our much loved online class instructor, author and couturier. Who better than him to inspire us with his "Greatest Hits" seminar in which he'll share with us his work and inspiration from the last 25 years.
MAKE founder and author of the book Sew everything workshop, Diana Rupp!
Our guest speaker event (Saturday, May 19th) will be held at Pace University, in the heart of New York City (One Pace Plaza)
Sleeping rooms have been reserved at the Four Points by Sheraton at 160 W 25th St, a walking distance from the Fashion District!
