I'd been pondering on Jenny Rushmore's FBA for any pattern as I've a challenging FBA on a lycra dress with princess seams for a large cup size to tackle soon. Not sure it entirely helped but I did glean more info than I have elsewhere so far. No need to buy it now.

@Marniesews I had a look at that class as well just for comparison.  I thought she explained things well and was quite impressed.  And then she went and did something I thought was bizarre.
When she folded out a dart at the armhole on the garment and showed it being done on the pattern I disagreed with her there.  She made no mention of doing anything else with it other than saying that paper was different from fabric and that's why it didn't lie flat!  I think she could have shown people how to get rid of that dart altogether because the pattern was unusable as it was.  Or did I miss something later on?

You're right, Ohsewsimple, that one was definitely a bodge and stood out from all the others.

Not just me then :).  And it's a simple alteration too. Weird!

And again this weekend.  Happy Mother's Day to those who are celebrating this weekend.

I'm currently watching "Creative Quilting: Alternatives to Free Motion."  This includes 'Big Stitch' which @Bogwoppit was asking about, but I think she is away this weekend.

Not in UK I'm afraid, it was last (or 2 weekends ago?) but I popped two classes in my basket and have only just remembered - not buying them at their current price!

Not cheaper classes, @Marniesews ,  but I watched for free in UK.

Nope, I just get an error message. Same as when I tried last time :( I think it may be an iPad problem.

I've probably said this before, but I find watching some of them at 2x speed helps.
