Great Style at Any Age
Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop
Age is nothing but a number when it comes to looking fabulous. And no one does it better than The Sewing Workshop Pattern Collection. From beautiful fabrics to stunning colors, this showcase of handmade garments will challenge you to rethink how you dress and what you want to sew. The Sewing Workshop is known for its carefree chic combinations of daring fabrics, textures and patterns in layers of drape and shape. Linda will interpret how to read the trends of the moment and fit those concepts into making real clothes for you.

Runway Knock Offs: Fashion Show
Films, magazines, newspapers, television, fashion/style trendsetters are everywhere. We gaze in awe at the gowns on the red carpet, knowing an Edith Head, a Givenchy, an Oleg Cassini or a Carolina Herrera original would be far from our reach. Yet, if you sew, the look is just a thread away. From the elegant look of Susan Sarandon in "Feud:Bette and Joan" (as Bette Davis in "All About Eve") to Lily James' "bohemian style" (in "Mamma Mia 2, Here We Go Again"), to classics like Audrey and Jackie, join us as Jim Suzio features his recreations of these and several other iconic looks on the fashion runway. As Jim would say, "Don't just follow fashion, create it!"
