Neck Tie Sew-Along Starts Next Week!!!

I'm delighted to be hosting my Very First Sew-Along!!! I'll be demonstrating how we Tailor's construct a Necktie. I hope you all will join in with me. It will be exciting and will give you another opportunity to see how I do things. Although it's not a complicated project don't underestimate what you can learn from it! Alot of great sewing lessons come from simple projects. I'll go in depth, explaining every step. This will likely be 3-4 sessions complete with video!!! No doubt you'll be able to apply some of these lessons to other projects!!! Plus isn't the thought of making a tie a fun one! They can be worn by both men and women. And think how much fun you can have making them in all sorts of fabrics!!!! NO NEED TO REGISTER! THESE WILL BE YOUTUBE VIDEOS OPEN TO EVERYONE!!!


Here's the video giving more details of the project. You'll find a supply list below as well!!!



Supply List:
-1 yard of fabric
-1 scrap of lining 4X4" or so
-1 old tie (to use as a pattern and harvest interfacing) or purchased tie interfacing
-Sewing Machine
-Thread
-Hand needles

As mentioned I plan on making 2 ties to demonstrate how to work with a slippery fabric and a plain cotton. Again, this is FREE!!!! I hope you'll be joining. Please let me know in the comment section below.

See you at the Tie Sew-Along!!!

  14. I am so excited. I have two ties gifted to me from my daughter's boyfriend's mother. The ties were his father's favorites but, have been well-loved into disrepair. My daughter was hoping I could salvage enough fabric to make bow ties for her boyfriend. (we'll see) At any rate, I have taken the ties apart and now I will just need to pcik some new fabric. Question, is there a way to clean the lining? Or is this something that isn't necessary.

  16. I made my first tie (and got great reviews) but I did it by deconstructing an old tie. Made a lot of mistakes I'm sure. Can't wait for the class!
