Funny Stories from Martha Campbell Pullen, Ph.D.

Thursday August 24 at Noon on the EXPO STAGE

Martha has been traveling and teaching sewing for 35+ years. She is always doing something new and pushing the edge of the envelope, and super funny things have happened along the way! At this noon-time presentation on the Expo Stage, you’ll find yourself laughing at her famous Spanx® story, her pizza board/lace story and so many others. PLUS – as a special celebration for Martha’s return to Arlington this year (during her birthday week, no less!) she will give one piece of her collection of antique clothing (an adult petticoat, circa 1890) as a door prize at the presentation.

Help Martha celebrate her birthday during her Lace Shaping is EASY workshop! She’ll be partying with Kathy McMakin and Alicia Welcher as she shares all the shapes you’ll ever need to know. What could be more fun?

 

Lace shaping is EASY and FUN! Using French lace and batiste you will actually shape a diamond (miters), a heart (curving and miters) and a bow (flip-flopping technique). Amazingly, these three techniques are the ONLY techniques used in lace shaping! So …. after this class you will know how to perform the magic – the same magic which has been used for centuries to embellish clothing with beautiful French laces. You might want to keep the secret of how easy it is, as you add lace shaping details to garments, home décor and gift items from now on. Leave class with three lace shapes, ready to stitch into projects at home. You’ll enjoy Martha’s comprehensive directions for stitching, alongside a trunk show of projects showing all three shapes used in a variety of settings.


As a special celebration for Martha’s return to Arlington this year (during her birthday week, no less!) she will give one piece of her collection of antique clothing (an adult petticoat, circa 1890) as a door prize for one person in this class. You must be present to win and you must be a student in this class.
