For those of you that follow the amazing Gertie over at Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing, then I am sure you, like me, have been very envious of her recent adventure to Camp Couture. If you haven't heard about Camp Couture, then you will soon be drooling and dying to attend, I promise!
It's really not called Camp Couture, but rather The Couture Sewing School and it's run by Susan Khalje.
So who is Susan Khalje? A contributing editor to Threads Magazine, host of "Sew Much More" which ran on HGTV, and designer of couture wedding gowns. Susan received her training at the elite New York couture salon, Chez Cez et Bez. One of Susan's book, Bridal Couture, was apparently out of print for several years and last year the copyright was reverted back to Susan and her book has been selling like crazy. I just might have to pick up a copy."At the Couture Sewing School, 6 intensive days are devoting to creating your garment. You'll be incorporating into your project the couture techniques that go into Susan Khalje's exquisite garments."
