Let’s talk a little about sewing

Those of you that sew may or may not know about Connie Long. Her books are like bibles to me. They are very easy to understand and extremely helpful.

So imagine my surprise and total delight when I found out that she teaches at G Street Fabrics. I was so excited I started jumping up and down in my seat.

I went to the G Street Fabrics website and downloaded the class schedule. Most of her classes are during the work day, so that brought down my excitement a little. But after further investigation I saw that she has a few one day classes (Hello lining class!) that I will be signing up for.

Also while I was looking at the class schedules, I saw that they also have Pattern Drafting classes. I am very interested in taking these classes. But I think for now I will take the one day classes. With the changes going on at work, I want to get into my new rotuines before I commit to longer classes.

G Street Fabrics also has a free “Fashion Club”. Where home sewers get together once a month, enjoy free lectures, shopping discounts, show and tell, etc. I may just go and check one of these out.

Last week I got a huge package from Fabric.com. I felt like a kid in a candy store. This week I will be spending my time pretreating the fabric and hopefully this upcoming weekend I will get some sewing done.

Ciao! xoxo

OOoooo, I'm going to have to check out those classes. Is it the G Street Fabics in Falls Church?

Yay for fabric! By the way, I received the gift certificate (thanks again!) and my fabric should be arriving tomorrow. :) What kind of fabulosity did the fabric fairy bring you?

And speaking of fabulosity, the show was amazing. I can't wait to see what they come up with next year.
