Textiles + Wine = A Mighty Fine Time!
DC Threads kicked off 2011 with our inaugural “Sip and Stitch” event!
“Sip and Stitch” brings together local and national sewing experts and DC area sewists (of all experience levels) for a relaxed evening of information-sharing, hands-on learning, wine, and light refreshments.
Many thanks to Molly and Judah Greenzaid for offering 20 or so sewing enthusiasts an insider’s glimpse into the world of textiles and the fashion industry. The Greenzaids shared with us their extensive knowledge of textiles – bringing with them dozens and dozens of swatches of fabrics that we held, touched, and coveted! We even burned some fabric as a way to identify true fiber content – avoiding a visit by the DC Fire Department!! And finally, armed with the latest fashion magazines and pattern books, Molly demonstrated how to select fabrics to copy the latest fashion trends.
Stay tuned for information about our next Sip and Stitch! We hope you will join us!
