Come Sew With Us!

Prerequisite: Palmer/Pletsch Fit Workshop or equivalent tissue-fitting experience.

Have you ever dreamed of getting together with other sewing enthusiasts to sew for five full days and to work on anything you want to create? You will get excellent fitting help. The goal of this “open sewing” class is to sew any garment you’d like help with. Demonstrations are given as needed or requested. Watch them only if you wish.

Would you like help selecting fabrics? Pati Palmer will shop with a few at a time at a nearby fabric store, usually after lunch.

If you’ve had your colors done, bring your palette. If you want your colors done or updated be sure to contact Image Consultant Ethel Harms in plenty of time to schedule a pre-workshop color analysis. (See the bring list for contact info for Ethel.)

The workshop includes lunches.


This workshop is held at Coolhand Studio, in Southeast Portland.
