Those closest to me know that my best ideas come randomly while I’m driving to and from meetings. (I’m working on creating a mental space where ideas sprout in abundance. Until then…)
April was such a crazy month, but luckily in the midst of the crazy, three fabulous collaborations came to mind.
Sewing Patterns & Products
Oh. My. Goodness. I learned to sew garments using Colette Patterns and I am beyong elated to be the only stockist in the grand state of Tennessee to be carrying them. EEEK!
And while we’re at it, I decided to stock patterns from Closet Case Files as well. I love love LOVE the Ginger skinny jeans, and I was a tester for the Morgan pattern so this seemed like an ideal choice. I’m looking to stock one additional pattern line in addition to sewing supplies & kits .
My friend Emily is an amazingly talented quilter and seamstress – holy sugar snacks she’s awesome.
One morning it occured to me that not only could Modern Seamstress offer quilting classes, but Emily and I could partner on other classes as well as work on custom garments. Since then I’ve been in contact with TWO OTHER sewists who are interested in being part of the Modern Seamstress movement. More updates as they unfold.
Online Sewing Classes w/ Superpixel Studios
We live in a fast-paced world. You know it, I know it. As much as I want to believe that live, scheduled classes will be a primary component of Modern Seamstress, I’m also realistic enough to know that most people with careers and families have to find snippets of time for hobbies.
I am so excited to begin my second collaboration with Victor at Superpixel Studios to create and launch online sewing classes. Each web-based class will be broken into skill modules with thorough instructions. You can learn in the comfort of your own home, and the convenience of your schedule. Each class will also include supplies or tools to get you started, as well as the pattern for each class.
All three of these collaborations are still in progress, but I’m so excited about what’s to come this summer and fall for Modern Seamstress!
