Pattern Company Fashion Shows at Sew Expo

I want to see the return of the fashion shows Simplicity Pattern Company and the McCalls Pattern Company at Sew Expo in Puyallup, WA.

I always sat in the front row, pen and camera in hand, ready to write down notes to share with my *students. The majority of my students use their patterns. These patterns are not only an inspiration to create a current fashion, but templates with instructions to construct them.

If you feel like I do please let them know. If you are missing them at your local trade show, let them know how important they are. Go to and scroll down to Contact Us. Let them know.

*I averaged teaching 80-112 Clothing Construction students 6 hours a week, 10 1/2 weeks a year for 32 years. For the past 7 years my weekly student load has lessen due to a change in my position, but that is still a lot of students. I have had my hands in every one of the student’s patterns, from altering through construction.
