Gale Grigg Hazen seminar - Houston TX

Post by Susan=Shaffer%OS=Dev%Sys=.. » Tue, 06 Jun 1995 04:00:00



In my local Cloth World today, I found a flier for a one-day seminar
taught by Gale Grigg Hazen.  She is described as "a nationally known
lecturer, author of several books and videos, [and] magazine articles."
The morning class is entitled "Preventing Sewing and Fitting Disasters"
and the afternoon class is "Sewing for the Less than Perfect Figure."

Has anyone taken either of these classes?  If so, did you find
them helpful?  What level sewer are they geared for?  I've
finally learned the importance of fitting, and I'm getting pretty
good, through trial and error.  Would I learn some useful tips?
The cost for the day is $35.  Any comments would be appreciated,
and if anyone in the area would like more information, I'd be
happy to email the details.

Thanks!
Susan Shaffer

Re: Gale Grigg Hazen class

Gale lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and has her own school and
used to teach at the Sewing Workshop in San francisco. I have met
her and heard her give informal remarks at many Bay Area sewing
events, and have taken a class on machine maintenance from her. She
is FABULOUS! She is very entertaining, very informative, and does
have a good sense of style. But that's my opinion!

For only $35, I say *take the classes*.  I've taken several classes from
Gale, and she's wonderful, particularly at helping you learn how to
pick patterns that are appropriate for your body, and altering them to
fit.  (She's also a mechanical whiz who knows a lot about exactly how
sewing machines work and don't work, but I expect these topics won't
be coming up in these particular classes.)

I expect that the classes are geared to intermediate or better sewers.
