Garment Sewing

 

 

Spatterncissors. Check. Sewing machine. Check. Pattern. Check. Excellent, skilled teacher, check. For the last year, I've been taking sewing lessons at Judy's Sewing Center in Capitola, studying with the owner, Judy, on Tuesday nights and now branching into studying additionally on Thursday nights with Dresden Ericksen, a long-time master seamstress who attended fashion design school and has the chops to match her experience. At only $10 per class, Ericksen guides students in creating garments. Note: You need a good grasp on the basics of sewing.

This isn't really a beginning class. with Ericksen at the helm, you'll learn darts, zippers, buttons, button holes, tucks, setting in a sleeve, fitting a pattern to your body's own proportions and much more. She provides individualized instruction and the classroom promotes a warm and friendly atmosphere. I've made several shirts so far in the class, and I have a long ways to go. But with Ericksen providing instruction, I have no doubt that with each class, my skills will continue to greatly improve. It's a steal for just $10 and some of the best sewing lessons you'll find in town.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
