SEW STYLISH - Look Like a Million in Clothes You Sew


Why look "loving hands at home" ...  when you can easily look "custom couture"?

Nothing is more frustrating!  Gorgeous fabric, a stunning pattern choice, meticulous workmanship & and a finished garment that makes you look and feel frumpy.

I attended your program at our ASG chapter last Saturday, and the timing couldn't have been more ideal.  I was having my picture taken the following day for our church's photo directory.  I'd been struggling with what to wear, but Saturday evening I applied everything I'd learned in your workshop to select the right outfit.

The photos turned out just great - so great, in fact, that the photographer gave me a full set of free prints in exchange for the right to use MY pictures in his advertising materials!  Thanks for a fun day and all the helpful information.  - Paula

How your ASG chapter will benefit:

Sewers who love to wear what they make are more likely to stay active and involved.

Your crafts and home dec sewers can apply the information to clothes they buy.

Even non-sewers can use Nancy’s information, so the event is a great outreach and fund-raising opportunity.

This universal topic is a magnet for media attention – a great publicity opportunity for your chapter.
