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 http://www.mccallpattern.mccall.com 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.
