Rhanda Teaches Us All About Interfacings

Guide in NYC provides a sampler pack of various interfacing options
Many thanks to Rhanda, who bravely took on a VIP topic, use of interfacings in garments. Rhanda carefully researched a huge variety of applications, dispelling several myths about when and where and how to apply interfacings for good effect.

And then, of course, there was fun and inspiring Show N Tell:

Jim wowed us with a dress for his granddaughter and an ensemble for his wife. These garments were submitted for consideration to participate in the 2015 Passion for Fashion contest at the American Sewing Expo in Novi, MI. Jim has been accepted and will participate in late September. 

We are all very excited and impressed. We are hoping for more news, perhaps at the October meeting of CWC. 

Last year he came in third! Here is a picture of the 3 winning garments from 2014. Jim's is the one on the left:
