Jane Foster's Walnut Creek Studio and Vogue 8817


“Anyone who has a chance to study with Jane Foster is very lucky. 
Jane combines the perfect blend of teaching ability
and knowledge of exquisite sewing technique 
with the talent to model great design."


Recently I received an email from Jane Foster
with photos of what she and the women in one of her classes
had done with Vogue 8817.
I want to share them with you.

 Jane screened polka dots on front and back.

Lark used a Marcy Tilton screen 
to soften the plain knit at the neckline.

Vicki used embroidery floss 
to work running stitch circles on the yoke.

Ellen cut out circles, 
fused them on with Steam-a-Seam
and added stitching.

Jeanne created two versions!

Jeanne couched copper cord onto the yoke
to create better color near her face.

Cathy combined some of the 50 shades of grey.


All you amazing creatives
continue to dazzle me with your innovations
and interpretations of my patterns!
Many thanks and much appreciation.
