In April, the Guild was super fortunate to have world renowned designer and sewist, Kathryn Brenne! For the past twenty years, Kathryn has been bringing her consummate knowledge, teaching skills and passion for creating to the Academy of fine Sewing & Design-which she founded in 2000. A graduate of Ryerson University’s Fashion Design program, she is a top selling Vogue Patterns designer, and one of the industry’s most published authors of sewing techniques.
We issue lots of “challenges” here in the Atlantic Sewing Guild as a way to inspire and encourage our members, friends, and supporters to sew different things, in different ways, or with some different twist to them. Among these many challenges, inevitably, some will be taken up by more members than others. Such was the case with the Sewing Partner/s Challenge that was issue several months ago, with results coming in for the past three months! Instead of showing them in bits and pieces, we opted to wait for it all and show it all at once! As you can see, whoever said “good things come to those who wait” was partially wrong given all the great pieces you see here! Pattern titles are linked to the patterns online in case you want to have a look for yourself! Thank you everyone, for all the great garments and the obvious fun you had doing them together as can be seen on your faces in the pictures! And thank you to Reina for the slides!
