Here we are privileged to hear Sten Martin talk about creativity.  For me, I have always been interested in tailoring; I only know what it is basically.  Yes, I have even been to Savile Row in London.  I've been sewing forever, but I always know there is that other part of fashion....tailoring, designing...I still do not know anything about--my interest never dies.  Now, in this video, Sten Martin starts to unlock some of the secrets of creativity. 

When it comes to sewing, seriously, how does a tailor think.  I want to know--I love to create--the ladies in Kathy Green's quilting class are artists.  I still love making clothes and a fine shirt where the armhole fits perfectly and the stitches are perfect is my current obsession--also with a very fine grade of 100% cotton.  I can make a shirt--I still have a long way to go. 

The tailored jacket is my ultimate goal.  These videos are fitting in well with my current sewing class--making a bodice block. 

It is fun and rewarding to create--Thank you Sten, for your thoughts.
