Many of you who have taken You Can Sew Clothes or Flat Pattern Design classes with Terry at have expressed interest in having a monthly gathering to share ideas, troubleshoot tricky bits of sewing, and just spend some time sewing together. So, we have decided it's time to make it happen with the Apparel eXchange of Ideas Studio (AXIS)! The focus of AXIS is apparel sewing (hence the name!), so bring yourself and an apparel sewing project, and be ready to inspire and be inspired!

Overheard at AXIS: "That dress has been completely transformed since you brought it here tonight!" Reply: "That's the magic of AXIS!""
