MONDAY JULY 20th 2015
In tonight’s edition… Pattern Amnesty, Sewing Stories and the Ask it Basket
What is your sewing story?
Ask It Basket
Let's get to know each other better by sharing our sewing journeys and experiences. You never know there may be someone in the room who is an expert on a technique that you find tricky, wouldn't it be great to help each other grow as dressmakers.
Do you have a sewing or dressmaking question? Someone here will be able help. Write your question on a slip and pop it in the Basket.
The theme for our August Meetup is Frocktails! We are meeting at Valentino’s above El Mexico on New Road from 6pm for Cocktails or Mocktails. Happy hour is on until 7pm!
Come along in something you made!
Tonight we are hosting our first Pattern Amnesty. If you have brought along unwanted patterns, this is how it works...
Private visit to Worthing Museum Costume Archives
The London Dressmakers Club have invited Dressmakers Social to join them on a trip to Worthing Museum on Saturday 5th September to view the museum’s collection of costumes.
Worthing Museum is the only Costume collection that actually lets you handle the clothes, with gloved hands, so you
can feel the weight and drape of the fabric and see those inside details.
The collection focuses chiefly on non-couture clothes and clothes made by dressmakers, both professional and home dressmakers. You can take photographs or sketch for your own personal use only.
The curator will select items according
to what most people want to see based on the garments and period.
The cost will be approximately £5 per head. If you are interested in attending talk to Emma. Details will be added to the Meetup page this week. The numbers are limited so if you want to come along be quick!
