Learn the Palmer/Pletsch Tissue-Fitting Method and never sew a muslin again!

3-hour seminar—$45

You try on your pattern tissue, alter it, cut from fabric then fit as you sew.  This method has been thrilling sewists from around the world for 30 years in Palmer/Pletsch workshops in Portland and around the country.

In this 3-hour lecture/demo, Helen Bartley will give you an overview of how tissue-fitting can work for you to make perfectly-fitting garments.  We will concentrate on fitting the upper body with a comprehensive presentation followed by a hands-on tissue-fitting demo on a volunteer model. Our cornerstone book The Palmer/Pletsch Complete Guide to Fitting and alteration supplies will be available for purchase (along with the opportunity to join the limited-space hands-on fitting classes with Helen).

This class is held at Sew-Op + Maker Space in Vancouver, WA, across the Columbia River from Portland, OR.

For Portlanders who don’t often cross the river, it’s easy. Traveling north on I-5, take Mill Plain exit toward Port of Vancouver, stay in the left lane. Turn left at light and move to the right lane. You are now on 15th Street. Turn right on Broadway. Sew-Op is in the green building on right—the first building you come to.

There is free street parking in front of Sew-Op and four blocks east. For closer parking download the convenient Parking Kitty app.
