Sutura Fabrics and Designer Sewing Center

Have you got a passion for sewing fashion, a craze for quilting, a penchant for pattern making or a mania for machine embroidery?

Join us for one of our classes or MeetUps! Our studio is located in Memphis, Tennessee and we love getting together with fellow sewists, quilters and digitizers! The sweet (or unsweet if you prefer) tea is cold, the welcome is warm and the group is fused with a remarkable relaxed energy.

Custom Bra Making Workshop for Beginners (1 day)

Cost: $79 plus Kit Fee

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and there is no better time to learn how to properly create a custom bra. We will donate 10% of the class fees for the Month of October to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Are you tired of bras that gouge with wires, sag, leave back bulges or lack the support you want?

Using “Bare Essentials – Bras” by Jennifer Lynne Matthews-Fairbanks as our textbook we will create a custom fit bra. In this one day, intensive workshop, intermediate sewists can learn to sew a custom fit bra – a skill that can set you free for life from uncomfortable, poorly fit bras. Learn Natalie’s methods for sewing supportive yet comfortable bras. We will make a 2 piece, soft-cup, full coverage bra with a 3 piece option for larger cup sizes.

Please bring:

  • Your sewing kit and basic sewing supplies
  • 1 spool of high quality, 100% polyester, nude colored thread
  • your well working zigzag sewing machine.
  • A sack lunch, water bottles are provided

Please register online at our Meetup Page. The kit fee will be posted there.
