A few months ago I learned about this lady from Wichita that teaches bra making classes. Then I found out that the local American Sewing Guild had invited her to come to Kansas City to teach a workshop. I hesitated at first, but eventually signed up. Wow, I am so glad I did. I learned so much and came away with a nice bra and a few new friends.
The first night was a fitting session and a lecture. I was impressed by Ann St. Clair's knowledge of bra's, but also women's health and self-image. The lecture was followed with a class. There were two sessions and I attended the Sunday session. It was a full day of bra making, but it went by fast. I learned about sewing with tricot, powernet and elastic. Ann's crew, including Kathy, were so helpful and encouraging. I appreciated the fact that they kept everyone moving at their own pace (something that is hard to do when teaching sewing classes). Did I mention door prizes! I actually won something...a pattern for underwear.
I am excited to be a new member of ASG and look forward to future sewing events with them.
