Pati Palmer will be our guest speaker at next year’s Artistry in Fashion. The show is always the last Saturday in September, which is September 27, 2014.

Pati has been teaching sewing for 37 years. She was an educator for the Armo interfacing company, a department store buyer, and a home economist. She conducts seminars throughout North America and Australia and established the Palmer/Pletsch International School of Sewing in Portland, OR where she trains consumers and sewing educators.

Pati has written several books on sewing and has created several videos. She created eight Palmer/Pletsch sewing notion products. Since 1980, Pati has designed and written instructions from more than 220 patterns for The McCall Pattern Co. She has also designed for Vogue.

We look forward to having her headline our show next year!

  • Pati Palmer is a top notch fashion/sewing educator. I have seen her teach many times since she began in the 1970’s and used her books in my classes at Canada College. Her patterns for McCalls have the best directions of any patterns. We are very fortunate to have her coming for our next Artistry in Fashion

  • That’s great!! Can’t wait to see her at AIF next year!! I took a short seminar from Pati up at Sew Expo in Puyallup, WA and it was great!!
