A Sewing Legend Will Be Missed

Just learned that the great Fred Bloebaum passed away after a battle with cancer!  The post said she was surrounded by family and friends.  So sad.  I was fortunate to have taken one of her classes at the Sewing Expo in Chantilly, VA.  She was a fantastic lady and her pattern line was chic and sophisticated.  I learned from her how to perfectly insert an invisible zipper using a regular zipper foot!  I remember her telling us to throw away those plastic adaptors many of us used for inserting invisible zippers.  I couldn't believe how easy it was to put them in with a regular zipper foot!  I still have all of my samples that I made in that class. 

Rest in peace Fred~~~~
