Wild Hautes may sound like a strange name, but these members love to sew. If you are an intermediate or advanced sewer then this is the group for you.
Ginny Winter is teaching couture sewing techniques using the book “Couture- The Art of Fine Sewing” by Roberta Carr. Each month Ginny will demonstrate the techniques covered in the book. Ginny expects every participant to perform the various techniques as we go along and create a workbook.
