I’d love to take a P.F. course on millinery techniques for dolls. Or making miniature hat embellishments. It sounds easy- just use smaller materials but often the trims are too thick or don’t fold small enough to look good in a smaller scale. Tiny flowers- I’d love that.

My favorite class so far was the one about sewing with knits. The tips from it are the ones I use the most often. I also liked sew-alongs for more advanced items and would like to do more of those with perhaps coat linings and other couture finishes. As for new classes….I’d love to know if there are any tricks to sewing the smaller items. I am an experienced sewer, but elastic waistbands in the Wellie Wisher size, for example, cause me problems every time. I’d also like tips on how to deal with underarm bulk, teeny hems, etc. in the smaller sizes.
