Inspiration—where does it come from? It is a deeply personal thing and each of us sees it in different venues at different times. You never know where your next inspiration is lurking.
Through a trunk show of her one-of-a-kind creations, Leilani Bennett will share her inspiration for each piece and the creative path taken from inspiration to the garment on a hanger. This is a trunk show that should not be missed. You will hear some of Leilani’s secrets and the little things that inspired her.

Workshop: Master Sleeve Class
A poorly fitted sleeve can transform a beautiful garment into a loving-hands-at-home piece. While loving hands at home is perfect for baked goods lovingly presented, it is anathema to a maker of fine garments.
In this class you will learn the secrets of sleeve ease—where and how much ease is just right; sleeve to armscye ratios; to press or not to press; pinning versus basting; the why and how of sleeve heads; where to place shoulder pads (and why they are so important even in this era of the natural shoulder line); and the sleeve tricks Leilani has learned—many of them learned the hard way.
This will be a combination of a demonstration workshop and a sample sewing workshop.
