classUnderstanding Sheer Fabrics
- Sarah Veblen

How many times have you been in a fabric store and seen a sheer fabric that you just had to touch? Sheer fabrics are indeed alluring: light and airy, with so many interesting textures and variations.

But how many times have you decided not to buy a sheer fabric because you didn't really know what type of garment to make from it? Or were uncertain how to handle the fabric. Or decided that you already had enough sheer fabric in your stash that you'd never gotten around to sewing.


Whether you're a novice or seasoned sewer, this 15 lesson class will delve into every aspect of sheer fabrics so that you're eager -- and confident -- to start sewing with them.

BookReviewCouture Sewing Techniques by Lynda Maynard - Book Review & Giveaway

If you're like me, you covet beautiful garments. You love to go to clothing exhibits and ooh and aah over the gorgeous clothes and are fixated on the details. You sketch, take a mental picture (even a cellphone photo if its allowed) and promise to try them at home. 


And then real life happens and you realize, you don't have the time! Or the expertise to create those details yourself. 


I have good... no GREAT news for you. This book by Lynda Maynard is made for us!

How did you learn to sew?


"I'm still learning! I got some basics from home ec in grades 7 and 8, more from a friend's mother who made beautiful clothes for herself, and recall at least one summer class before high school. 


I was lucky enough to attend a high school that offered some real specialty classes, including one in tailoring. I took a night course once that taught me the basics of flat pattern drafting and fitting, but I've learned so much more from one good friend who was trained as a tailor and now from the Internet." - Kay Y
