Did you know that you can register for Winter classes online?
Perhaps you are a person who collects ill-fitting garments that you never get around to altering or you have a closet full of “I’m sure I will wear it agains”. Maybe you are a designer looking to join the “green” brigade but not quite sure how. Or possibly you just want to know exactly what sustainable is and how you go about starting the journey.
Come join us for the SMARTER workshop where fun meets facts. This workshop will show you just what to do with that sweater you don’t want to get rid of but will never wear, or show you what you can make from that scrap of fabric that you just can’t bear to throw out all the while learning what makes sustainable design sustainable.
On Sunday, December 11, 2011

Style can perhaps be easily learned when you are young enough. And it certainly helps if you have a mom that’s stylish. Toddlers today are looking better than ever. I guess we can thank Gucci (see video) as well as Rachel Zoe (now a mom) who is starting a kids line.
Don’t we all want to have “lil” ones to dress. I am fortunate to have a 14 year old son. However, dressing a male is somewhat more limiting than dressing a female. Jeremy has developed his own urban street skate style. I guess I might have influenced him somewhat. And I never knew there were so many different styles and brands of sneakers. Currently, I am enjoying checking out his clothing brands and he is learning how to shop wisely online. A good way for mother and son to bond.
