peggy-cropped Mark November 9-11 (Thursday through Saturday) on your calendars: sewing celeb Peggy Sagers is making a rare appearance in the Bay Area, here at Britex Fabrics! Peggy offers an uncomplicated, yet professional approach to fit that's suitable for all sewing levels. Please note! Class size on 11/9 and 11/11 is limited! Order tickets now!

Day One is a three-hour workshop (2-5 PM, Thursday, 11/9) on How to Fit the Perfect Pants. In this small, highly personalized workshop, you will learn that making a garment fit correctly will save you hours...and that sewing a pair of pants can take less time than taking a shower. Participants will receive a free pattern upon sign-up, in order to make up a muslin before the class.

Day Two is a late afternoon Wine and Cheese Q & A with Peggy (4-6 PM Friday, 11/10). You'll get to know her, and learn how to combat Gaposis--those unsightly gaps in the armholes, neckline or bust of tops. Peggy will show you how to solve this problem on your own figure, and then how to apply those fixes to everything else you make for yourself. Attendees will receive a free Silhouette pattern!

Day Three is a fit feast called Fitting Yourself, by Yourself. (10:30-12:30 PM Saturday, 11/11) Come hear what you don't know about fit, and it will change the way you sew and shop forever. Bring your own garment and get fit tips! Tasty tidbits are provided; attendees will receive a free DVD!
