About the event
Do you struggle with forward tilting shoulders, uneven hips, shoulders, a high hip, protruding neck, garments that droop, drag, pull, or bind; or struggle to find clothing to fit a protruding tummy or fuller bottom? It’s a fact! Your body is changing every day. As sewists we often wake up at a certain age, and we act surprised that suddenly, we have fitting issues. It’s not that we suddenly become hard to fit, it’s that we did not plan our sewing and fitting skills around practical sewing solutions that apply to real life. The body is a moving object, and we can face it with confidence when we have the right tools. Join Designer Joi for a special three-hour Fit After 50 seminar where she will share solutions to these issues and many others as well as explain how and why these things occur in our sewing.
Registered participants will be able to view the class for up to two weeks on a private Facebook page provided by Designer Joi. This will allow paying students access who may not have been able to attend at the live taping.
