       Hi & Happy New Year!
      Get off to a good start in 2013 by attending a Sewing Workshop and get sewing on the next historical garment you want to wear to that exciting event!
      Wendie Fernandez has graciously offered to have a Sewing Workshop in her home in Corona (near River Road/Archibald & Corydon) on Saturday, Jan 5 & Sunday, Jan 6.  You can come one or both days.  It will take two days to finish a corset $150. For other projects the cost is $40 per day.  There are already 7 girls interested in attending, so let me know which day and what you want to work on and I will save you a place. shelleypeters@...

      Of course, a corset is the starting point for any period gown. In the next sessions I will then work with you on your individual project teaching you how to use period techniques to sew beautifully fitted period correct garments. All eras are welcome.
      Here are some of the projects you can receive individual instruction on in any era:
      Corset Workshop $125 (plus tax on materials) for the first day: Sew your own corset; white coutil, cotton twill, and all supplies included. (I recommend this before you attempt to sew a day dress or ball gown)  $25 per day to finish.
      Under it All $40: Chemise and drawers or combination underwear for beginning and intermediate sewers.
      Bodice Fitting $40: Make a muslin from your favorite day dress or ball gown pattern and have it fitted to your corseted shape (I recommend Truly Victorian).  If this gets completed we will go right into the cutting out process.
      Bodice Construction $40 per day: Period techniques taught for a bodice( day or ball gown) to go over a corseted figure including flat lining, hook and eye closure, boning channels, and piping facings. Supplies will be available for sale.
      Summer Sheer Dress $40 per session:  Learn to fit the underbodice, gathering, flatfell seams, and cartridge pleat as you construct a gown made of sheer cotton
      Skirting the Belle $40:  How to make a skirt (day or ball gown) to go over your hoops with period construction techniques and pleating ideas.
      The 5 Foot Pinner Apron $40: For beginning to intermediate sewers, learn how to use 5 of your sewing machine feet while constructing a pinner apron
      Wrapper $40: This requires 7 yards each of fabric and lining. We will use the Past Pattern #807.
      UFO $20 to $40: Come and sew for the day.  Work on your own or get help on your specific project.
      Private Sewing Lessons:  $20 per hr/2 hr minimum
      Bring a Potluck dish to share, your sewing machine and the project you want to work on. We'll have fun and accomplish some sewing!
      Please let me know if you plan to participate and which class you are interested in doing. I can send you a flyer with more information about each workshop. Supplies (patterns, boning, hook & eye tape, etc.) will be available for purchase.  Cash, Check, or Cards accepted.
