Time to dust off the old sewing machine and take notes from a local creative. 

Fashion designer Tiffe Fermaint, who's shown her wares at local fashion weeks, design competitions and in Downtown galleries, is looking to get back behind her machine and is dishing out a few helpful techniques

The Phoenix-based designer came back to town after attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and working backstage at fashion events for Meghan Fabulous brand and designer Brian Litchtenberg. 

She's currently working on new designs and voicing her opinion on local fashion through her blog, Last Night's Outfit

This fall, she says she'll be hosting individual, "after-school"-type sessions Monday through Friday after 4 p.m. and anytime on the weekends. She encourages those interested to bring ideas for a garment of their choice. You provide the pattern (cut out), fabric, and thread, and she'll provide the machine and lesson plans.

Each two-hour session is $40 and sessions can be booked until the garment is complete, or until you're comfortable enough to try it on your own. Email info@tiffefermaint.com for more information.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
