FREE LECTURE AT TREADLE - Enlarging Pattern Diagrams

Do you love learning extra sewing tips and tricks? Don’t have time to take a full class? Join us for this totally FREE mini lecture and pick up some useful new info! If you’re a classroom regular at Treadle, here’s a chance to dig a little deeper into certain topics. If you’ve never taken a class with us, this is a perfect way to see what we’re all about!

Some books don’t print full-size patterns, instead giving you little diagrams which need to be enlarged. Instead of taking your book to the copy shop, learn several ways to scale up your patterns on your own and make them useable.
