Summer, my favorite season, was exceptional this year. I was fortunate to spend the height of summer in Paris and Florence, two of the world's great centers of style and textiles. The beauty and vibrancy of both places was restorative and energizing. My head is spinning with inspiration from the fabric districts, in European retail and simply observing people on the street. That apparently effortless way of pulling a wardrobe together ~ what the Italians call bella figura, is so enviable! Naturally, I came back with some fabric treasures and big plans

We sewers realize that the practicality of our forebears is no longer the motivation for what we do. The desire to make things better than we find in retail is what drives us. Creating our own clothing puts in charge of fit, fabric, color and texture. It allows our personal and artistic preference to rise to the surface.

So whether you're making that last transitional piece to take Summer into Fall, or are already looking ahead to your cold weather wardrobe, I invite you to my studio for the Fall 2017 series of classes. Details are on the classes tab. Check the News tab for helpful information for working with Fall's newest trend ~ chunky knits. See you soon,
