PhD (Projects Half Done) Class and Fabric Swap with The Sewing Society

This weekend the Sewing Society met for our second PhD class and Fabric Swap at the Roundhouse Theater Education Center in Silver Spring.  Every quarter The Sewing Society hosts a class where members can bring in their sewing projects in and get help with completing them. There is nothing worse than UFO’s Un-Finished Objects! LOL!!  I’m sure any of you seamstresses out there can agree. On Sunday the students brought in some great items to work on this week and a couple even completed them during out three hour session.

Pictured here: Mary putting in Tailor Tacks on a very stylish Vogue jacket. Kanisa worked on a cape she has been nursing for a couple weeks. These ladies bring water and snacks to stay hydrated. This sewing stuff is hard work 🙂


Breyan decided to put the finishing touches on her fabulous Skirt


We were all proud and amazed at her progress!



Heather picked up a dress from the Thrift Store and wanted to turn it into a more fashionable blouse.





Patricia pictured below had a black and white knee length dress and converted it to a shirt with a peplum bottom




We also had a fabric and pattern swap. These are the most fun



I got lucky!! Must be St. Patty’s day!! Patricia brought a dress in for alterations and decided to give it to me!!! Thanks again Patricia!!


And as always we laughed and had a great time!!
