{June 26, 2009}   Margaret Islander…

Below is the website for the DVD we watched yesterday re: drafting pants.

There is a gal here in Tucson who used to work at Leandro’s Fabrics and “toured” with Margaret. She knows loads of her tricks and techniques. I’ll see if I can track her down and maybe she’d be willing to do a workshop.

If you don’t want to buy, you can check out They rent “How-to” videos. I just sent them an email, asking if they could rent the Margaret Islander, Peggy Sager, or Sandra Betzina videos as a package. The usual rentals run around $8-10 per DVD. They have a “Sewing University” package, but it includes a lot of quilting and craft stuff.

Good tip re: SmartFlix, Gloria. I’ve seen their website, but have never ordered. Thanks!

I am trying to draft a basic pant pattern for myself this week. Will let you all know how it comes out. Would be great to have a 1 day workshop in the lab for just drafting the basic pant pattern while the video is playing. Just the support alone would be great!! Wish me luck!!!

Good idea, Deidra! Maybe we can do this in the fall.
