For the last 14 years, I've been teaching at the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference in Muenster. This unusual conference is Saskatchewan's Best Kept Secret. But that's OK. The 350 women who do know are happy to have it all to themselves.
The Conference is held at a real working monastery...yes, with real monks and bells and the whole monastic experience. But it is more than that. St. Peters is also a college and as part of the University of Saskatoon, they offer courses that might not otherwise be available to rural students. But when the students leave for the summer, the stitchers come in! Here's our beginner bra class, it's always the first two days.
Here's a Shelley combining turquoise and fuchsia
And one with more traditional bra colouring in peach
We always have a black one!
We had to have an orange one too!
And ooh la la, a fuchsia Shelley with lace from Freya!
But the student had a bit of a mishap. Can you tell what happened here?
That's right, the lower cup in the cup on the right hand side was sewn on backwards. It is easy to do when both sides of the foam look exactly the same. We got it sorted out and the cup was ready to cover
And here is the almost finished bra made from those cups
To keep the strain off the lace, we created a very unusual internal power bar
