Sew Easy Knits - Dallas

Just returned from a 3 day conference in Dallas, Texas.... Oh What Fun! 
 Jeanette and I taught classes and had a booth at ETA - Dallas and had so sew much fun!

The first day, Friday, we had a full day class on sewing with knits.  The first 45 mins we had a lecture and power point presentation of the different types of knits and passed around knit samples.  Then we got to work on our knit top  Jalie Scarf Top which is so easy and fun to make.  The class was 6 hours and the ladies went away with a completed top and no fear of sewing with knits.  Saturday there were 2 one hour lectures.  The first lecture was on color blocking.  Here's two dresses I recently made.  The first one, black and white... bad choice.  I was thinking more black in the middle to hide the tummy, but the white on the sides doesn't look right.  So, I made it again, using the black and red, and it came out much better! 

On Sunday, we did a half slips class.  We made 2 half slips: a black and a white.  Tricot is fairly easy to work with and these ladies left happy with 2 new slips and all sorts of waist band and lace options and variations to choose from
The Conference was a lot of fun.  We met a lot of ladies, made new friends, and learned a lot!
