2012 Sew Expo's "HOTTEST' Class the 2012 Sew Expo is now a fond memory. All that planning..all that work....all those hundreds of teachers and speakers and vendors coming together...and the thousands of attendees....

and it's OVER. Those are the fastest four days of the year. Honestly -- it's worse than Christmas.
So -- are you wondering what was 'THE HOT CLASS" for 2012? I'll tell you -- hands down -- it was "Fitting the “Girls” by Connie Crawford. It was one of our four-needle pre-show classes offered on Wednesday only.

Here's the description:

Using your personal measurements and cup sizes, learn the art of fitting a pattern for various cup sizes. Connie will demonstrate the different drapes needed to make the various cup sizes(A/B, C/D.DD, and F/G cups) and armholes to create a perfect custom blouse. Using finished sewn shells, Connie will fit each attendee for their personal fit. Connie will also demonstrate how to use this custom blouse pattern to style any blouse, shirt, dress, jacket or vest.

HOLY COW!! The response to this class caught us totally off guard. We had noooo idea it would be such a hot ticket. Because our four-needle classes are limited to 30 students, they usually sell out quickly. But this class SOLD OUT within minutes of the online registration opening...

Here are some of Connie's very happy students. Lucky, lucky girls, eh??

The class is just starting and everybody is already clapping?? What's that about??

I was trying to take pictures (for this blog) -- and Connie wanted to show me how great she looks -- because she's lost 25 pounds (since her very serious back surgery in December)

I'm pretty sure everybody was smiling because I sincerely told Connie how happy we all were about her weight loss.

  1. Getting clothes to fit is the main aim of fashion sewing and the biggest bugbear for sewers. I'll always pick this topic because my body shape changes and various styles need different tweaks here and there. I hope you can keep running this workshop at future expos.
