Fits Sew Well successfully launched!

The Calgary Creative Stitches and Crafting Alive show kicked things into high gear and Fits Sew Well was officially launched!  I presented 2 seminars - 20 Tips to Improve Your Sewing and Fit Any Body over the 2 days (for more information about the seminars including handouts see the seminar tab).    I was blown away when over 120 ladies attended the seminars.   I even ran out of handouts when over 50 ladies attended 20 Tips to Improve Your Sewing on the Friday.  


Speaking with some of the ladies after the seminars reconfirmed my vision for Fits Sew Well.  I firmly believe that there are many garment sewers out there but they are scattered to the wind.  We just need a means to come together, share experiences and learn from one another.  And so the studio is born.  My vision is to help sewers connect with one another, providing a comfortable place to relax and create.  Nothing more stimulating than getting together with other like-minded people who share your passion. 

The week after the show, one Fit for Real People workshop was totally sold out forcing me to schedule a second.  The subsequent workshop quickly sold out the same week.  I have a waiting list for Fit for Real People and based on demand I am looking at scheduling a Pants for Real People workshop in the new year.  I am sew excited about the possibilities I can hardly keep up with the demand.  I have no idea where things will end up but I am looking forward to the journey.  Please join me.

Garment sewers unite!
