The collection is filled with inspiration, as Pam clearly demonstrates everything from essential basics like the easiest continuous bias and a pair of simple zipper insertions, to her methods for producing fast, fool-proof box and knife pleated trims – and so much more.
Naturally, the list of how-to demonstrations includes making and using piping, applying twisted cord, using ricrac in new and fun ways, and all the tips and tricks you’d expect from a "finishing school" pro along the way. Learn to install a placket zipper and one with piping, as you see her create several projects, start to finish. Once you see how easy Pam’s methods are, you’ll want to include one or more of these touches in many of your own projects – and you can!
Further, because Pam is such a machine-centric sewing pro, you’ll learn about some accessory feet that make your process smoother and faster. One of her favorites? The double welting foot – she uses it for so many things!
Known as the "Decorating Diva," Pam learned early in life, while spending time on her grandparents' farm, that making something from "scratch" was not only a way of life, but it was the better way of doing things. Holding on to those values, she went from farm to fabric and has had a very successful 30+ year career as an interior designer and sewing professional. Pam offers professional drapery workroom training to the trade and consumers. As a seasoned career speaker, she travels internationally teaching the specialty techniques that have brought her years of continued business as the "Couture of Home Dec Sewing."
