Chat Topic: Sewing Faster



Kathleen Fasanella is the driving force behind Fashion-Incubator and has worked in the apparel industry for 27 years as a pattern-maker, specializing in suits, lined garments, leather products (mostly coats) and outerwear. She is also a consultant and trainer. She lives in New Mexico with her husband, adult son and six cats.

This book is considered required reading for any potential sewn-product consultant.

The chat is open to all Friends of PR members. Chat instructions will be posted on the PR home page on Sunday morning.

Awesome! I learned how to insert invisible zippers with lining through her tutorials. Too bad the chats are always at 3am my time. I'll look forward to reading the chat afterwards

I was surprised and flattered when Deepika invited me. I'm also very excited to be doing this but also a bit nervous too. Be gentle with me, looking forward to meeting you all soon!
