It's Sew Heavenly - Come to Class this Fall

Brenda and Lacie are the heart of "It's Sew Heavenly".
They are the ones who choose the best and prettiest fabrics  and laces to offer.

They have created an atmosphere where you are inspired to sew and they are happy to help you find the right materials for your project.

They keep the classroom small so the students can get more out of the class.
Smaller classes mean more personal instruction.

I'm very excited to be going back to teach for It's Sew Heavenly this fall.
They treat every one of us like we are "Queen for the Day"

It's Fun!

I'm in the throw's of makeing the beautiful Dress for the Class Project.
I am using Toddlers Summer Dresses Pattern.

But the lovely dress we are making has been created just for this class.

Our Dress will be….Linen, Lace and Beautiful Embroidey!  
Add a touch of Hemstitching and Construction Techniques and this class is the perfect combination.

Join us as we make a lovely Summer Dress.

This is not the dress but it will be similar. 
 The yoke is embellished with lace that is attached with just a wee bit of hemstitching.

 Both bodice and skirt are lined for a nice finish and you can choose to make Size 1,2 or 3.  

The Techniques included in class are - Lace that is attached to fabric with the Hand Hemstitch (Just a little bit of Hemstitching can add quite a splash to your garment!), Machine Stitched Tucks, Lace to Fabric, Lining the dress and construction of a sleeveless Yoke dress.  Some special Embroidery Stitches are included along with old favorites. You will love the hem I have designed for you.

The Old Fashioned Double Featherstitching (or I could call it the French Acadian Antique Featherstitching since I learned it in South Louisiana).  This Featherstitching is unique in that there are no written instructions for it, except for Jeannie B's Embroidery Book and I am very keen in bringing back this beautiful stitch.

 Irish Bullion Rose

Another Stitch I have garnered through examining antique Baby Clothing is the bullion Irish Rose.  The center of this flower is an Eyelet with Bullions stitched in such a way that I think it resembles the Irish Rose.  I will show another way for when you just aren't in the mode for stitching eyelets!

We will also make a pretty Heirloom Pillowcase to practise our new skills on.

And come away with two lovely projects.

There will be three wonderful days of fun and informative stitching by hand and machine.

 I hope to see you there.
