Amy was the winner of a $100 gift certificate in our spring sale raffle. Amy is from Santa Clara, and first heard about Britex seven years ago from a lady in her knitting group. She says that she loves going to visit Britex to pick out buttons, or to look for prints that she can’t find anywhere else in the area for sewing or quilting projects. Amy plans on using the Britex $100 gift certificate on fabrics and notions for making clothes for Caroline, her 18 month old daughter…and a dress or blouse for herself. We think Caroline is winsomely adorable in the blue playsuit that Amy made for her!

Britex Fabrics and Sandra Betzina team up again! Sandra will be presenting her amazing fitting seminar on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 from 7 pm to 9:30 pm! Call Britex Fabrics at 415-392-2910 to make your reservation. Space is limited, and the cost for the seminar is $60.
Are you often disappointed in the fit of your garments? Confused about what size to buy? Have you outgrown your old size in one area and not another? Are you intimidated by good fabric because you are afraid of yet another fit failure? Let Sandra Betzina explain her fit formula and how it will work for you!

  • Lots of new pattern alterations, including altering the bust without affecting the armhole, downsizing for the short, upsizing for the tall, and high hip considerations.
  • Learn how sizing differs from one pattern company to another, what size to buy, how to alter for narrow shoulders, full back, sloping shoulders, full hips, protruding or flat seat, full tummy, large waist, small waist, sway back, and more.
  • Turn pant “hopefuls” into a thing of the past.
  • Eliminate baggy seats, pockets and pleats that pop open, accommodate full thighs, and reshape crotch curves to mimic your body curves.
