For our monthly meeting in March, we did a small pivot to have our guest speaker not just speak, but deliver a class! Over 90 minutes, Pamela Leggett of Pamela’s Patterns showed us the Palmer/Pletsch tissue paper fitting method for the upper body, where paper is used in place of fabric and a muslin, to alter a pattern to a body. Specifically, due to time limitations, Pamela focused on the upper body.
At our first monthly meeting in 2021, we got to hear a lot about photography of garments from our guest speaker, Lindsay Duncan of Meet the Maker Photos. It was so informative we dedicated an entire post to it, allowing our monthly meeting summary post to highlight our members’ creations in Sew & Tell, and our Warm & Cozy Sewing Challenge. Both are in the galleries below, compiled by our member Reina, which you can click on the thumbnails to see in full screen. We also got new sewing challenge if you read on below!
