I knew it was too good to be true - a sewing class a block from my house.:nc:

I logged on to my public library yesterday and requested some books on fitting and sewing. Good thing, because as I drove past the sewing shop last night, there was a sign on the door saying the store is closing, and she'll be working from her house. When I got home there was a voicemail telling me she's trying to pull a schedule together, and she'll get back to me.

Part of me wants to call and ask what happened, but she did say she'd get back to me, so I don't want to be a stalker sewing student ;-)

I'm very bummed out, but at least my current project is easy enough for me to do on my own. I'm making a medieval costume for the King Richard's Faire. It's kind of hard to mess up a plain full dress and rectangle tunic tied at the waist with a belt!

You can have fun with braid and so on with costume too. I found a great chain belt to go with a gown, that worked a treat - and cutain tyeback cord makes fab trim!
love and kisses, Jan
