Featured in Vogue Pattern Magazine
Jane Foster's Sewing Classes and Marfy Pattern Challenge
EXTRA...EXTRA.....EXTRA.....red hot news.

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:
