Hi,

We need just one more $50 deposit to confirm Paula Doll's "Custom-Made 
Bra Class".  Email me, liz@nobhillfabrics.com, if you're interested.

    http://www.nobhillfabrics.com/classes/bra_class.html

There is still room in Laurie Lange's "Versatile All-in-One-Piece Garment 
Design" class.  Designed for the advanced beginner looking to move into 
intermediate territory, this class teaches the design and construction 
of a simple Persian tunic, top or jacket.

    http://www.nobhillfabrics.com/classes/tunic.html

We have an exciting new class in the works.  For all those upcoming formal
events, prom, weddings and reenactments, Leslie Ashcraft will teach about
the inner workings of strapless, or semi-strapless dresses and corsets.
This will include boning, built-in foundations, waist-stays as well as
fabric and lining choices for formal, strapless styles.  Leslie would really
like to get you started on your dream dress for that special event!  We'd
like to schedule this class to accommodate as many students as possible so
please contact Leslie (lesash@q.com) if you're interested.

Two of her most popular classes, "Tricks of the Trade" and "Fitting
Solutions", will also be back in March.

SEWING TIP
==========
Taken from Leslie Ashcraft's "Tricks of the Trade" class:  Cut your
notches outward.  Cutting them inward weakens what is already a stress 
point and takes away fabric you may wish for later.

FEBRUARY
========

"Versatile All-in-One-Piece Garment Design"

Cost: $60
Instructor: Laurie Lange
Class size limited to 5

Saturday,  February 11th,  10:00-2:00

Skill level:  confident beginner, intermediate. 
              Expert sewers wishing to explore pattern design are also welcome.

This class will acquaint you with a simple yet sophisticated pattern from ancient 
Persia that can be made into a tunic, top or jacket with just one continuous 
underarm/midriff seam. Unlike other one-piece patterns, this pattern is capable 
of the fit that separate fitted pattern pieces create.

We will discuss how the weave and drape of fabric contributes to fit.  You will 
get a pattern diagram, learn how to dimension the piece for your body and shape 
the one seam for the style you want.  Instructor will demonstrate seam finishes 
and neck facing, hemming, cuff and front placket depending on participants'
interests.  Expect to come away with a design cut out and ready for finishing 
when you get home.

Bring a washed fabric piece about 54"x 54" (45" x45" will do for short sleeve, 
waist length garment),  scissors, measuring tape, pins and pencil.

Contact Laurie at 505.220.2726 for more info and to sign up.
