The next Technische Modevakdag during Novembeer BMA meeting

Each year during the Technische Modevakdag (Technical Fashion Day) organised by the Branchevereniging Mode Ambachten – BMA (Fashion Crafts Industry Association) each Region presents models made of the same fabrics.

In January during the Region East meeting the 2 fabrics for this challenge were presented. I did not make pictures but the fabrics are Suéde look in colour Brique and Olive green – more or less as the ones below.

Suede_look_fabric_Brique Suede_look_fabric_Groen

One of the models will be made by Gerrie Tuitert (man’s model) and another by Bas van Loo ( – woman’s model.

Having since 2014 additional members from the associations FeetBag it will be fantastic to have one of them to participate in this project – Marjolein Neijzen from Belleportee.
I will have small input in this project as well.

It is very exciting to work on this challenge. More will follow in due time.

Find out how you can benefit from everything Craftsy offers

Few weeks ago I was writing on what Craftsy is and now it is time to tell you why it’s so amazing!

What is Craftsy?
Craftsy is a worldwide craft community offering online classes. It also has a patterns marketplace where independent designers can sell their patterns; a supplies shop with great deals on yarn, fabric, and class kits; and a projects section where members share pictures of their latest craft successes. With over two million members and counting, Craftsy has something for just about everyone, in categories ranging from quilting, sewing, knitting, painting, photography, cooking, and more.

Craftsy Logo
Behind the Scenes: The Making of a Craftsy Class
Before filming even begins, hours and hours are spent determining what content will be covered in each class, and how to best teach specific techniques to the camera. Instructors work with an instructional designer to create an in-depth outline of each lesson, and decide how to best prepare props or “step-outs” that show what your project should like at different steps. Instead of a scripted class, instructors follow their outlines on camera to create an authentic and engaging teaching experience.
Most Craftsy classes are filmed in one of five Craftsy studios in Denver, CO, assuring that every part of the production process goes off without a hitch. They fly in instructors from all over the world to spend several days filming, then spend several weeks turning hours of footage into a two to three-hour class experience that has been watched, rewatched, and reviewed by industry experts. The final result is an HD-quality video that takes you in-depth into specific topics in any given craft category from cooking and fine art to sewing and knitting.

What IS the Craftsy experience?
Craftsy classes are designed to have all the benefits of an in-person class, with none of the drawbacks. Available online and on-demand, you always have world-class instructors at the tip of your fingers. You can retake the class as many times as you want, and the 30-second repeat feature allows you to watch the same section over and over again until you get every technique just right.
Watching a Craftsy class is like having a first-row seat with some of the best instructors in the world. Even better, classes have a 100% money-back guarantee.
Try online learning today with a free mini-class from Craftsy! Choose from 23 Free Craftsy Classes ranging from drawing and painting to sewing and quilting, from knitting to cake decorating and more.

Make A Garment A Month Challenge

Sarah Liz – who is writing great posts about her sewing and style journey – has started the 2013 Style The Stash Sew A Long! Very easy-going sew along till 31st December – which looks like a lot of time  – during which all participants will try to make lovely garments out of our stashes.

I have joined this challenge however due to all healthy problems with my mother I did not do so well so far. Looking at all creations from all participants I am so impressed.
Congratulations to all of you.

When I look back at the pictures of how it was before – I see no differences. Even worst – I have just bought new fabrics … ooops!
