I’d love to take a Pixie Faire class that shows me how to “up my game”. I’ve been sewing for many years, working on things from camper curtains to wedding dresses. Many times it would have been helpful to have more than my high school classes to get me through a project. Having skills that Ciminnon will provide will help me with my new adventure of creating doll clothes. I will be retiring from 40 years of being an educator to being a full time crafter. Cimminon has such a love for what she does and it flows over into her desire to inspire others. I’m excited to take this class to see what I can do too.

“I’d love to take a Pixie Faire class that shows me the “Little tricks of the trade” for making doll clothes – such as how to solve the problem of gapping shoulder straps. My solution is to cut straps longer, hand baste front straps 3/8” from marked location, test and retest then sew into bodice. For the back, I leave a slightly larger opening on each side where the strap should fit. (Back stitch if necessary.) After bodice or dress is complete, I slide the straps into the slits, adjust as needed and the top stitch the back-bodice sides. Saves a lot of ripping and resewing. This is just one of the many problems sewing for dolls. Thanks.

My favourite Pixie Faire course is… all of them! So far that I have taken . There are so many little tips and watching someone else see sometime helps my technique or if I am struggling with something. The video is so clear it is easy to see. Definitely seeing up close sewing is a benefit. I haven’t done the specialty fabrics or sewing with knits yet so I look forward to learning more.
