Connie Long has written a Taunton book on linings but this was an excellant workshop held at G Street Fabrics. She went through the various lining options, including fashion fabric--passing around various samples. There were lots of handouts (some of which replicate her book). She brought lots of jackets for demonstration (many of which are in her book) to show how different fabric combinations can work or not work. Then she showed us exactly how to put linings in jackets, skirts (including three different vents), and pants/slacks. She also showed up how to make a reversable camisole (it is very clever and quite easy once you understand the rolling principle). All the way through she sprinkled her own learnings and tips, including some of her failures. I enjoyed the class and she is very personable. Now if I can only apply all this information!

I'm jealous. I enjoyed the book and find it very helpful and wish I could go to the class.

Brat, this was taught at G-Street Rockville Pike Store. You can see the on-line catalog at the G Street website (gsfabrics.com).

Sounds like a great class! I liked that she teaches from her failures, too.

Thanks for posting this. When I look at the G Street catalog I have so much trouble picking a class.
