Victorian Antiques Hangar Fashion Show
Martha will present a totally antique garment "hangar" fashion show with her stories about the
embroidery and sewing techniques on each piece. Join Martha for a journey back about 100 years in time as
she shares many pieces from her Victorian/Edwardian clothing collection.
With each item, a bit of sewing history has been preserved and each seamstress left a personal legacy in
the masterpieces that you will see in this show. Enjoy the exquisite hand embroideries, many of which have
been digitized for today’s embroidery machines. Christening dresses, nightgowns, elaborate women’s dresses,
blouses and children’s garments, are treasures which Martha has collected from her travels from three
Martha will also share stories about her journeys with Joe on the never ending search for
more "white clothes," and she will pass the clothes around so you can actually see and touch and
feel some of the clothes you have enjoyed reading in her books.
Turn Your Sewing into Money
Have you ever wondered if you can make money with your sewing? Thousands of people are doing just that.
Martha will share ways that others have successfully turned their beloved hobby into a business. Endless
possibilities are available. From machine embroidering, to teaching sewing classes, making custom garments,
teaching computer skills on the sewing machine - your imagination is the only limit to the potential
business that you might start. If you already have a business, this seminar might help you realize ways
you can grow that business. Explore with Martha the possible dream of doing what you love and earn money
along the way.
Lace Shaping from A-Z
Did you know that there are only 3 techniques for lace shaping? Curving, mitering and flip-flopping -
each one is EASY. Come and practice lace shaping "hands on" as you curve and miter lace.
Martha herself will show you the flip-flopping technique. After this "cardboard box" class
you will be ready to make the dress of your dreams like the ones you see in Sew Beautiful magazines
and in Martha’s books. Start dreaming of lace hearts, diamonds, ovals, and scalloped skirts-your list
will go on and on-because the mystery of lace shaping will be solved. We’ll furnish everything you need
to make beautiful designs appear like magic and before you leave, you’ll be saying, "I can't
believe how easy this is."
I'm so pleased to invite you to attend our exciting event. I've also invited some of the most talented teachers, with new classes just for you! I'm looking forward to sharing some of my favorite heirloom techniques with you at this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Your three days will include hands-on classes, fun with fantastic kits, the best teachers in the world, lunches, an evening dessert reception and lots of other goodies.
I hope these amazing techniques inspire you the way they have inspired me. I'll also spill all my Lace Shaping secrets, and give you some advice I've learned over the years about starting my own business and how you can start yours.
I want this event to be as memorable for you as it is for me. That's why I have worked hard to plan a weekend you'll never forget.
I can't wait to see you there!
