Ron Collins is a well-known international sewing expert: designer for Vogue Patterns, teacher, writer and co-host of Web TV’s Power Sewing. He is back for a limited engagement! Is fitting your nemesis? Bring your favourite patterns and muslins and let’s start fitting. Go home with your pattern, adjust the pattern, cut out the garment from scrap fabric or muslin, sew the fitting shell and then refine the fit and transfer your alterations to your pattern. Bring patterns for jackets, pants, tops, jeans, outerwear etc. Choose whatever pattern you want and whatever fabric suits the pattern, such as in woven, stretch woven or knits. With Ron by your side you’ll be able to overcome those trouble spots in fitting.


  • Cheap fabric or muslin fabric for the fitting shell (please make sure if you are working with a pattern that is suggesting stretch woven or knits fabrics, that your cheap fabric is a stretch woven or knit)
  • Patterns of your choice
  • Sewing machine and sewing machine needles
  • Thread for sewing machine (old, odd colours or cheap thread will do)
  • Tissue paper for alterations
  • Scotch tape or something similar
  • Pencil/pen for making pattern alteration
  • Hi-lighter pen (any colour)
  • Fabric marking pen, pins, seam ripper, measuring tape, sewing gauge (all basic sewing notions)
  • Tracing wheel and transfer paper

  • 1/2” wide stay tape (any colour)
