Beginner Sewing Summit - Rebecca Page
I know I don't have too many subscribers yet, but I wanted to write up a quick blog post about the Rebecca Page Beginner Sewing Summit. It is a free event put on by Rebecca Page patterns, and it has a bunch of classes that you can take. Each class is free for the first 24 hours it is up (the 24 hour time periods start at 9am ET, which would be 6am my time). It runs from this Monday, May 3rd, 2021 to Friday, May 7th 2021.
Each day there will be a different line-up of classes, and I recorded a class this time. My class is called "Serger Basics with the Paris Party Top," and it will be on Thursday the 6th. Teaching a sewing class online was a new thing for me, but I really enjoyed it!!
The pattern I used is a free Rebecca Page pattern called the Paris Party Dress. It is a patter for separates, but I only sewed up the top portion this time so I could talk about how to sew with knits on a serger. I sewed up two versions of the top, both with the same fabric. One is full length and long sleeved, with a scoop knit neckband:
And the other is a crop-length short sleeved top with a boat neckline finished with binding:
So sign up and play along at the link above. If you really end up liking the classes, there is a VIP pass you can purchase to continue to have access to the videos for a year. It is $59.
