I’m delighted to have been asked to teach a class at Sewing Summit this year!
It’s really cool to see an event like this one, geared for a wide range of sewing: crafts, quilts, garments, everything. Add in a modern aesthetic and a bit of blogging, and it sounds like a good time to me.
I haven’t finished planning out my class entirely, but the subject will be sewing with lace, which is something I’m really excited about right now. I’ll talk about the magic, wonder, and history of this incredibly beautiful textile; how to identify various types of lace; working with lace in large and small doses; and how to wear lace without looking like a bride. It might be the perfect time to get inspired for making holiday dresses or fancy winter loungewear.
Sewing Summit will be held October 11-13 in Salt Lake City, and I hope to meet some of you there! I believe tickets go on sale April 3.
By the way, did any of you go to last year’s event? I’d love to hear what the experience was like for you.
