Fit, Fashion, & Fun
Thursday, April 8, 2021: 10 am - 6 pm
Country Inn & Suites

Garment sewing is the easy part, but it's fitting that makes garments come alive and compliment the body instead of just covering it. This is where the fit doctor, Judy Kessinger, comes in. This is NOT couture sewing or making a sloper—this is how to “fit” the easy way to create and design the clothes we all wear every day! Judy will share a trunk show and discuss how you can adjust patterns to fit. Every attendee will be personally measured by Judy and go home with a mini pattern.
Class fee is $50 and includes lunch. Sign up here.
