At the Pattern Review meeting at Sawyerbrook on Sept. 20 there was interest in more information about URI's Master Seamstress Certificate Program; coincidentally an article ran in the Providence Journal the next day. If you go to the journal's website www.projo.com and do a search for the program's title it should display the complete article, which is well written and gives an excellent overview of the program. I have completed MS I & II and would recommend it. Diane annd Mabel are wonderful teachers, I found their instruction style clear and easy to understand and they are both very motivating. I am more confident about fitting myself than I ever thought I would be and am more likely to consider drafting a pattern myself rather than buying a commercial one and making adjustments. Although sewing techniques are covered this is not a learn to sew class.
