This club meets the first Monday of the month.
Monday, May 6th will feature Stefani Lincecum as a guest speaker.
Steffani Lincecum is a designer, patternmaker, instructor and author with over 30 years of experience in film, television and theater. She has patterned and sewn custom clothing and accessories for the TV series Will & Grace and 3rd Rock from the Sun and the films Nixon and Primary Colors and has made individual pieces for Madonna, Bridget Fonda and Lucy Liu to name a few. After working alongside veteran tailors and seamstresses and sewing high-quality garments with a quick turnaround, Steffani has learned that traditional techniques are just as valuable as modern methods and she loves finding the balance between the two. her first book, Patternmaking for a Perfect Fit (Watson-Guptill, 2010), explores the rub-off method of making patterns from finished garments. Her second book, Sewing Machine Magic simplifies the vast potential of even the most basic sewing machine by using attachments and tools. Visit Steffani's website at www.stitchcoach.com to find patterns and classes at Bluprint.com.
The club's mission is to provide a friendly, supportive and stimulating atmosphere for learning and sharing advanced sewing techniques with the goal of creating beautifully constructed and expertly fitted garments. An exchange of ideas and resources to further sewing skills and interests is encouraged. Members of the club should possess advanced sewing skills and share a love of fashion and an enjoyment of the process of creating hand sewn garments.
Skill level intermediate to advanced.
