“LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WEAR BORING CLOTHES.”
That’s the motto of Paula Schultz’ very popular fashion class, Runway Addicts. Paula will be running the class once a month for four months. The first session will be a Trunk Show featuring some of the garments created in her previous classes, and at the end of class you will receive your first Challenge. The challenge could be a trim, an old or special garment, or whatever Paula comes up with, and it must be included in the garment you create at home before the next class, when you will show off your creation. (No sewing machine will be needed in class.)
At the first meeting, you are welcome to bring a project that you would like to share for Show and Tell (it does not need to be clothing).
So get your creative juices flowing and we’ll see you on February 21st at 6pm!!
