Do you sew for your little ones? Perhaps you had a relative who taught you to sew or maybe you are advancing your sewing expertise through participation on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and various blogs. The Smocking Arts Guild of America (SAGA) is delighted to offer you a new and exciting adventure this September in Orlando, Florida.
Classics With a Twist, features a wonderful weekend full of exciting classes with LIESL GIBSON, designer of Oliver + S patterns. Liesl has taken children’s, women’s and accessories’ patterns to a new level of cute with modern designs and thorough directions, making even the most challenging design accessible to the new seamstress. Come meet this talented designer and experience first-hand her personal instruction. The classes will cover basic pattern alterations, details that make a difference, as well as a wallet construction class. Come check out our Facebook page for some free giveaways from Liesl in May!
Friday afternoon, Liesl will be presenting a free lecture, open to the public entitled “One Pattern, Many Looks.” In conjunction with the lecture, SAGA will be offering a Vendor’s Market and showcase from our members and teachers. Market will include fabric, patterns, machine embroideries, heirloom laces and much more. We want to share our love of all the needle arts with you. Come join us for this wonderful event and see what SAGA has to offer - you will be overwhelmed by the talent of our SAGA members and teachers!
