Interfacing Experts

INVITE OUR INTERFACING EXPERTS TO SPEAK AT YOUR STORE OR TO YOUR GROUP

These Palmer/Pletsch certified sewing instructors are experts when it comes
to teaching others how to use interfacings. Turn to them when you want a seminar for your association or in your store.

Seminar can include:
• Hands-on demo
• Power Point slide presentation
• Garments made by the EXPERT
• Interfacing samples to feel
• Sample fabric fused with the right interfacing

Interfacing is The Secret Behind Beautiful Clothes

It is the inside that counts when body or stability is needed in a garment. Fusibles are now better than they ever have been. Learn which weights to use, how to cut and properly fuse. The seminars these teachers offer can stand on their own or be part of any fashion sewing topic. It could be an add-on to a fit seminar or workshop.

Interfacing is the hidden ingredient that has been a manufacturers’ secret for years. Our Interfacing Experts will teach how it makes the biggest difference in the quality and appearance of garments. Students will learn how to use interfacings to make a garment's edges crisp, even with soft luxury fabrics.
