Children’s Corner Sewing School with Lezette Thomason

Lezette Thomason, Children’s Corner, is a designer, author, teacher, and BERNINA National Artisan. Check out her videos on YouTube! She keeps busy teaching classes in Nashville, TN:

Children’s Corner of Nashville, Tennessee held its Spring Sewing School June 14–16 with Lezette Thomason as instructor. Lezette’s group of 20 students, mostly sewing on BERNINA sewing machines, made five garments in three days. Making these clothes for little girls featured a small amount of redrafting, technical construction using both the sewing machine and the serger and even a little crocheting by hand for embellishment. We did a lot of work and had a great time learning drafting techniques and which BERNINA feet to use to make stitching easier.

Scarlett , who came to visit her student mom, sported red bows and sandles accenting her white Children’s Corner #241 Lucy appliquéd with flip-flops. All 20 ladies in Lezette’s intense class welcomed a breather to admire this little show stopper.
