I don't know if you can read this(it 's a little out of focus) but this seminar featured a coffee reception followed by a lecture and demonstration entitled " Magic of Perfect Fitting"". A luncheon provided by The Holiday Inn Supper Club and wrapping up with a drawing and door prizes.
From the typed flyer to the door prizes the whole event reminds me of my Grandmother...another Edna who helped arrange for similar events through her women's clubs. It all seems so civilized.
I wonder how many women attended? I can only assume that the previous owner of my books did. From the notes in the margins I can see she enjoyed her books and I hope that she would be pleased to know that they made it into the hands of another lover of the craft of sewing.
In Chapter One of "Fashion Sewing By the Bishop Method" entitled "The Well Dressed Woman" she advises us to ask these questions before every garment purchase, or for that matter when we choose a pattern/fabric combination.
- How will it wear?
- Will it keep its shape?
- Will it become dated?
- Where will it take me?
- How does it fit into my life?
