Sewing Your Way From Good To Great!


 

SeamstressErin is here to help you up your sewing game. She'll explain and show an arsenal of sewing techniques that are easily understood and completed but help elevate any garment from good to great. Learn the where, why, and how for techniques like understitching, underlining, pattern matching, and much more. This workshop is great for beginning sewists just learning techniques or intermediate sewists who want to brush up and learn new applications for what they already know.

About Erin:

ErinHeadshotI’m Erin Weisbart (neé Erin Currie), a.k.a. SeamstressErin. I look at every day as another chance to play Dress Up. I love bright colors, flowers and things that sparkle. I’m obsessed with fabric and when I’m not sewing clothing you can find me knitting, quilting, crafting and doing needlework. I have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and I’m the owner of SeamstressErin Designs pattern company. I write patterns to empower other women to play Dress Up Every Day. Whether that means a comfortable knit skirt or a silver lamé party dress, I believe every woman should be able to decide what Dress Up means for herself and that she should feel confident and beautiful in her own skin playing Dress Up. I love sharing my love of sewing with others. I’ve been blogging about sewing and other creative pursuits for years. I share finished projects, tutorials and host sewalongs on my blog. I have taught sewing at Maker Faire Bay Area, appeared on Sew It All TV, and written patterns for Sew News, Sew It All, and Sewing World Magazines, and for One Yard Wonders: Fabric by Fabric and One Yard Wonders: Little One Yard Wonders books.
