The Trees and the Travel...

I've moved out of Sydney to live in rural New South Wales to take in the fresh air and the quiet.  My pattern making workshops will now run in a number of cities as I travel more and teaching become the bigger part of my life.  As I find new venues to deliver my training I'll report here so you can follow.  If you'd like to start the ball rolling and get some workshops running in your area, drop me a line and we'll se what we can pull together. :)

Hi, Antia,I have to come to your studio through Pinterest, I am so excited to read your articles, I have just signed up as a newsletter subscription and being a member. However I have a request, that I went to your Well-Suited blog, and on February 20, 2013. You mentioned a two page pdf of the detailed instructions for two-piece collar drafting by Natalie Bray, Is the PDF still available? I am interested in making a better men's shirt collar. I am still have a difficulty to draft a perfect industrial look of a shirt collar and the neckline. Would you have any suggestion of how I can reach this goal?

Hi Edna, thanks for dropping by. :) You can find those drafting detail in the Natalie Bray book I mentioned. The original PDF is no longer available. It was a one-off offer for the old blog and removed once I moved to blog to my website.
