Supply List AND Schedule
If you are coming Friday you will want your pattern, tracing paper, (Judy recommended one but many of you have your own), tracing tools, tape, cutting tools (scissors for pattern cutting or whatever you like to use) tape measure, pins, and your notepad. Friday is pattern measurement, tracing, and some fitting. The goal is that you will be able to trace and cut out your pattern otherwise you might have to do that at home. Everyone will have to be patient. Please DO NOT bring in your machine on Friday.
For Saturday, if you have your pattern fitted then Judy will probably have to cut your fabric at home the night before. She will let you know on Friday. That way you will be ready to sew up your pants on Saturday. If you do not have your pattern ready then she will be helping you on Saturday while others are working on their construction.
For Saturday you will want your sewing machine with thread to match or contrast as you will be fitting the actual pants and doing construction. The usual parts to your sewing machine, don't forget your foot pedal and power cord and bobbins. You should also bring your pattern, tracing paper, tracing tools (this in case you need to make further changes to the pattern), scissors/rotary cutter to cut out pattern, pins, sewing machine and all the parts, extra needles, and your fabric/pants depending on where you are in the process.

For Friday, you don't need an appointment with Judy just come and she will get to each person in turn. Not everyone is coming on Friday. Friday is 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm (we will play it by ear so don't worry) Remember No Machines On Friday
Then a reminder that on Saturday Judy wants to start at 9 am. So you can get here at 8:30 to get setup. Again, we will be sharing space so please minimize the number of personal things you bring to the store. Plan on getting your machine out then put your rolling carts etc. back in your car. This way we can maximize the space we have for everyone.

|Instructor Bio: ||Judy Kessinger started her career owning and operating a small retail fabric store in Louisville, Kentucky. She traveled nationwide holding seminars for Hancock Fabrics for over 25 years, designed costumes for national and international figure skaters and created a fast and easy way to conquer fitting problems for that field.
Judy's next goal was to make stress-free sewing with simple solutions for fitting. Her personal style included many relaxed, comfortable but well fitted outfits. In her search for the perfect pattern she decided to use her experience and create the system herself. The Master Tops and Master Pants patterns were born! Once you FIT the basic pattern, you can build and create an entire wardrobe on those two patterns.
She is known by many as the Fit Doctor, curing the ills of the sewing blues. Sewing is the easy part but it's the FITTING that makes garments come alive and compliment the body instead of just covering it!|
