Because variety is the spice of life (psssttt… so is lingerie), Bra Making with Madalynne was a little different this month. Instead of having it at Madalynne Studios, the class was held at Expect Lace, a local lingerie boutique that recently started carrying Madalynne’s ready made items (click here to read my review here). With…

Ask a car enthusiast what his or her dream make/model is, and they may say Porsche 911, Suburu’s WRX STI or some other fancy-schmancy, super fast car. Ask a sewist what his/her dream machine is, and they may say a coverstitch machine. For a long time, that was my answer. Coverstitch machines are used in…
In August, I gave a sneak peek in this post as well as on Instagram into a project that was in the works. I told you that I had flown to San Francisco to film something with Creativebug, but I didn’t tell you what exactly. Today, I can finally share. Well, a third of it…
In 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared September as National Sewing Month. Almost four decades later, that ancient art that our grandmothers did is still going strong. I’d even say that with all the indie sewing companies that have popped up, sewing is even making a comeback. To celebrate, I’ll be hosting a month long campaign on…
If you want a special experience, with one-on-one instruction and beautiful materials, a bra making workshop with Maddie is for you. The day is also full of unexpected surprises--for my session, a curated cheese board for the class snack, as well as a generous gift bag to take home. The session itself is full of detailed instruction by the master herself. Also met some wonderful people from across the country who came in for the workshop. Time and money well spent. Absolutely dreamy day from beginning to end.
Maddie's class was SO fun, even for a MAJOR beginner. I took one intro sewing class 6 months before Maddie's class so I was definitely nervous. But Maddie was extremely informative and attentive to the needs of all the attendee's sewing levels. It seems that the experienced sewers learning a lot about technique and refined their skills with Maddie's guidance. While less (or no) experienced sewers (like me!) got more hands on help with basics.
I took a bra making workshop with Maddie, and it was so great! It was (obviously) a challenging product to make. -but she walked us through it one step at a time - I finished the workshop with a well fitting usable bra and better understanding and appreciation of what goes into constructing our bras! I couldn't ask for more, but Maddie surprised us with more - the whole day was beautifully created, we had a fantastic lunch, an industry guest stopped by to explain bra fitting, and we left with goodie bags just like a party. Thank you Maddie for the fantastic day! I would do it again, and anyone who has read my review this far...I recommend you go sign up for a workshop and experience the wonderment yourself.
