Upcoming Events

Free Event: Getting the Best Out of PDF Patterns, with special guests from Patternsy and Greenstyle – June 12, 2021, 11 am – 1 pm Eastern Standard Time. Sewing patterns and books published in the PDF format have greatly increased access to these materials around the world and allowed designers to develop a global reach. We will be hosting two experts on working with PDF designs in this free online event. 

Mark of Patternsy, based in the United Kingdom, will be discussing, “PDFs, love them or hate them, they are here to stay” and explaining the work process of Patternsy’s on-demand printing services. 

Angie of Greenstyle Creations, based in Oklahoma, will be sharing her tips on getting the most out of PDF patterns from her experience as a designer and a maker. 

Bring your questions, fears, and kudos about PDF patterns to discuss with our panelists. Available everywhere on Zoom. More info here. Register here.

Samantha Rei on Draping Your Way to Radical Body Acceptance and Design – June 17, 2021, 6 pm to 8 pm Eastern Standard Time. Samantha Rei will be joining Twins N Needles to share how makers can use the classic skill of draping to free themselves from standard sewing patterns, shapes, and expectations. No previous experience is required. 

“We all have bodies, and if you’re like me you enjoy dressing it in ways that make you feel your best. Everyone of every type of body deserves to wear clothes that evoke this feeling. I’m going to discuss radical body acceptance and why learning to drape can help with your unique fit.”  

A recording will be available to students after the session for review. This class is available everywhere on Zoom. More info here. Register here.
