I spent the weekend at a seminar with sewing instructor Connie Crawford, and took this picture which I found amusing. She was asked to hold up an illustration so the people in the back of the room could see it. She asked the only male attendee, who is as you see, very tall, to hold it up and then had to climb on a chair to point out details. Standing on the chair she is about the same height as the man. She is one seriously small woman! But I did learn quite a bit, it just needs to be absorbed. I purchased two of her patterns for "blocks" and will compare them with the SureFit Designs block patterns I have developed. One pattern is for an armhole princess seam blouse, which I am too lazy (and really not competent enough) to draft myself from SureFit. I'm looking forward to getting down to the sewing room again, as I haven't done anything for a week because I STILL have people working on that bathroom...finishing the electric. This is my stepson, who after all has a full time job and lots of demands on his time, so I had to wait until he was available.
