Starting a Blog

Welcome to my Blog! This is my first posting and I'm hoping it will interest you.....I'm working the bugs out - like learning how to use my scanner and where everything appears on my blog, so be patient. I'll get there, I promise.

Last week was week one of my Fashion Sewing Summer Camp and we had a great time. There were 9 students, myself and my excellent camp councilor, Bennett Smith.
Each girl brought their own sewing machine and made at least one garment and in some cases, a whole outfit with accessories. Some of the girls hadn't even sewn before. It's so incredibly awesome to see them learn how to use this machinery and empower themselves with a new skill. On Friday we had a fashion show with all their new clothes. The runway was set up with lights, seating, even a little paparazzi!
During the week the girls also learned how to create mood/inspiration boards as well as beginning fashion illustration on a croquis.
I can't wait for Week 2 of Fashion Sewing Camp and my next group of future Fashion Designers!

Stick around and there will be photos. Please feel free to leave comments. I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say!
