The pandemic has added many complications to our lives. Jane is now offering online consultations through “Messenger”, “Facebook”, or “Zoom”.
She is very pleased how these consultations are working, and has taken one student right through pattern and fabric choice, muslin fitting, and placement of design. It does involve some back and forth emails and some video visits, but students so appreciate the help.
Email Jane to set up a date and time. Thanks. Jane
Email Jane to join her class. Thanks. Jane

Jane Periodically Features the Work of one of her Students
Wai is the latest featured student.
The “something” can be a garment for yourself or someone else. It could be a bag or something for your home. It needs to be in fabric! You have until early in 2020. I hope you can all create something for this challenge. Happy Sewing
PS I will be available for design and pattern advice
Jane's held a workshop on a Big Collared Shirt Sewing Class
Jane had drafted the pattern, and everyone loved being able to quickly make a shirt that fit and looked good on everyone.
Be sure to see the Vogue Pattern Magazine, the February/ March issue. This issue features Jane's "California Pattern Class (Marfy Patterns) " in a six page article starting on Page 56 ! Jane describes how she challenged her students to use a pattern by the Italian pattern company MARFY. These patterns come with no instructions, no seam allowances, and no pattern layouts. So they are quite a challenge. So get a copy of the magazine, and enjoy!
You can also see garments made by Jane's students using Marfy patterns here:
