sewing class: pattern grading CREATE ANY SIZE: PATTERN GRADING FOR SEWERS

The topic of grading patterns for size is huge with many differing and advanced methods. Kathleen is known for taking a complicated subject and making it easy for beginners to understand.

In this class, Kathleen demonstrates a way for beginners to get started in grading using both multi-sized patterns and the basic method of Cut & Spread.

We start with the easiest way to grade - using the growth lines from multi-sized patterns.
Then, we move on to single sized patterns using the method of grading that is the basis for all others- Cut & Spread.
Learning Cut & Spread will give you an understanding of the steps in grading a pattern and get you started on your own.
This class is good for those sewers who want to resize multi-size or single size patterns. If you find yourself outside the range of multi-sized patterns, or you want to resize a vintage, single sized pattern, this class is for you.

sewing class: custom fitting Custom Fitting: Back, Neck, and Shoulders

In this class, we'll take the mystery out of fitting your back, neck and shoulders.

Did you know you might be wearing a size that's too large in all the wrong places? I'll show you how to wear a smaller size and insert extra room just where you need it. Your tops will fit and you'll be more comfortable.

You'll learn the correct way to fit sloping, square, broad and narrow shoulders. We'll fit dowager humps, sway backs, wide and narrow backs, "wings", tight and gaping necklines. Once you've mastered these techniques you'll love how your garments look and feel!
