Saturday Meeting and Lecture: Bringing Passion back to Fashion

This trunk show showcases highly wearable, easily sewn and distinctive garments from Lyla’s three pattern lines: L.J. Designs, À La Mode, and Eclectic Treasures. Lyla will explain how easy it is to change a garment’s look by making simple pattern adjustments: adding or subtracting a pattern detail, adding a boutique touch, changing the fabric or changing the hemline. With easy-to-fit and sew patterns in sizes XXS – 4XL, attendees will be inspired to try new patterns and sewing machine techniques. Attendees may try on garments after the program.

Saturday Afternoon Workshop: Sheer Delight

In the afternoon workshop, Lyla will demystify working with sheer fabrics. Participants will create a beautiful sheer shawl while learning techniques for sewing, finishing edges, appliquéing on sheer fabrics and more. Lyla will provide each participant with a kit that includes everything that is needed. This shawl looks more like a jacket and can be worn in a variety of ways.

Sunday Workshop: Fleece to WOW!

Fleece is a fabulous fabric: popular, comfortable to wear, and easy to sew. Start with a simple design, add Lyla’s innovative, yet quick and easy decorative accents, and you’ll transform your fleece garments from ordinary to extraordinary! See all new garments showcasing decorative and functional finishing techniques, including zippers, buttonholes, edgings, surface design, 3-dimensional accents and so much more! Capture the inspiration to personalize fleece as you enjoy Lyla’s “why didn’t I think of that?” ideas. You will be creating your own WOW!
