"I love creating outer garments in the fall and look forward to sharing this time you.  The process starts with an inspiration, a seed, a unique combination-often  a fresh direction for recycled pieces. The metaphor of 'meaning' can reveal new aspects of sewing, textile play and silhouettes. We'll explore construction techniques and how wearing impacts silhouettes, details  and closure design. So whether you love wool or cottons, start dreaming of a garment you've always wanted, collect your favorite materials and join us to create it. "  Diane
