Not that Martha, the other Martha

Martha Pullen, of Sew Beautiful magazine and Martha's Sewing Room PBS series, is from Huntsville. Click here to see a list of her books available from Amazon. To celebrate her 65th birthday she's hosting an entire week of School of Art Fashion classes and seminars at the Huntsville Von Braun Civic Center. Pfaff, Bernina, Baby Lock, and Husqvarna Viking are providing serger and embroidery machines for their exquisite decorative and heirloom construction classes. Most classes are designed for the students to walk away with a completed project. Many of the students, who are arriving from all over the world, are bringing their own machines for the classes taught by extraordinarily talented artists who not affiliated with a manufacturer . The coat pictured here is the project for a class taught by New Zealander Beverly Sheldrick.
