We just can't get enough of the gorgeous Lindsey Rae and her fabulous patterns and we are ecstatic to announce that Lindsey is returning to Kimz to teach a "Fit to Flatter" 2 day workshop.


Lindsey is the founder of Sew To Grow and is passionate about sewing and education in the sewing industry.  She has already been to Kimz teaching her "Urban Outlook" tote, teaching our ladies how to work with leather.  You can check that out here.

This time Lindsey is coming in to teach you how to make your garment fit to flatter.  Doesn't that sound great?  With 4 designs to choose from including dresses and tops, you are sure to get noticed for all the right reasons and best of all feel comfortable and confident.

Sweet Summertime Dress
The Sweet Summertime Dress features no zippers, a fitted waist and cap sleeves this pattern is sure to be a wardrobe staple all season long!
The Noosa Shift
The Noosa Shift features two sleeve options (sleeveless and flutter), pockets, t-shirt hem and elasticized waist.

Sweet Summertime Peplum

The Bondi Top is the absolute wardrobe staple.  So versatile and a great way to show off fun prints.  This top feaures a curved hem that is slightly longer in the back and a contrast back yoke.

What a Team

Looking for some great ideas for projects using your Janome machine?  Well Janome has teamed up with the very talented Anna Maria Horner to bring you delightful projects including The Right Turn Bag.

I just love that you can use up strips of fabric and use the great decorative stitches on your Janome machine, and with Anna Maria's instruction, you'll have yourself a unique tote bag that will turn heads.


Some of our ladies decided to give it a go and here are the results.



Above is Erina's front and back of her bag using her purple and orange fabrics. 



Helen and her daughter on the left decided to have a day together making the bag.  Helen is not a fan of straight lines so she did wavy stitching and used lots of embellishments.  Helen's daughter Gemma made the large version of the bag.  Deb on the right wanted to use up some of her vast stash of spotty fabrics.


Christine used some scraps of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and used some coordinating solids for the stitching detail.

Check out Janome + Anna Maria collaboration projects here and get stitching today.
