Fiber Arts Guild
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild’s next program meeting is on Wed., February 7, featuring Pamela Crosby on “The Urge to Serge: A Trunk Show of Knit and Woven Garments,” at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting promptly at 6:30pm with social time beginning at 6pm. Guests are asked to pay $10 toward the speaker’s fee. (If the Holland Public Schools are closed due to bad weather that day, the meeting will be cancelled and rescheduled for the following Wednesday.)
Pamela Crosby will discuss serger basics and demonstrate various techniques through the use of her “trunk show” and a PowerPoint presentation. She is a self-taught independent sewing instructor, specializing in garment sewing, a certified Sewing Workshop instructor and a Louise Cutting instructor. She has taught classes in Michigan, Florida and South Carolina. For the past 5 years, she has traveled with Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop and is a faculty member of the Original Quilting and Sewing Expo based in Westlake, Ohio. She has had “tips” published in Threads magazine and has published articles in Christine Jonson’s books, “Clothesline” and “A Little Black Dress.” Pam’s philosophy of sewing is that garment sewing should be a fun and rewarding experience and believes that time should be spent sewing, not fitting, and so that garments reflect our more casual lifestyle. She is a devotee of independent pattern companies.
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites anyone interested in the textile fiber arts to their monthly program meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at the Holland Area Arts Council.
