We did a class on style changes and that was a full house with16 in the class. I love teaching that class - there are so many design elements we can add to a bra by changing the strap attachment area, or the band, and by changing the seam lines on the cup.
Yesterday, on Canada Day, we did a half day class on Fabrics. This is a class that I thought would not be that well attended, as I assumed that everything was already familiar with bra fabrics and how to choose them. I was wrong! That class was a real eye-opener for even some of the more experienced bra-makers.
So after saying goodbye to everyone and packing the car to bring all the supplies home, Bodil and I were able to sit down last night and discuss what we would do differently next year, and what to offer for classes. We welcome suggestions from everyone for course content and ways to make the conference even better! We have tentatively set the dates for next year as June 27 through July 7.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the students who attended, the staff and managers at the hotel Scandic Bromma, and most of all, a HUGE thank you to Bodil and Lillebror Friman, who made it possible for me to come and share their home, family and friends for the last two weeks!
Now it is time for some relaxation and some sightseeing, then home to Canada on Saturday!
