Hello fellow patternmaking and sewing enthusiasts! 

 

I am excited to announce that I am collaborating with Craftsy.com in 2024 to present more online content. Earlier this year, I filmed classes on Copying Ready to Wear and Proper Pressing Tools and Techniques, as well as a handful of short form instructional sewing videos. New classes and videos, in addition to an already existing series of ten pattern drafting classes, are available now on Craftsy.com

 

Thank you for the strong support of the 2nd edition of Building Patterns. If your 2024 goal is to strengthen your pattern drafting skills, I am teaching classes focused on guiding students through individual chapters of the Building Patterns textbook starting from the beginning and advanced sewing classes throughout the year to support your pattern drafting practice.

 

Looking forward to seeing you in class!

Suzy
