I need help!!! I'm trying to find a "How-To"

Some months ago I came across a website that demonstrated how to convert a man's T-shirt into a woman's T-Shirt. There were very detailed instructions, and you virtually take the T-shirt apart and remake the t-shirt for a custom fit. A few weeks ago I found a nice sale on men's T-Shirts and bought a few, but surely don't care for the boxy fit.

If any of you know of this site or have a TNT (Tried and True) method of altering T-Shirts to fit women, please let us know with a post here on the blog.
After attending the Quilting and Crafts Show at the Pomona Fairplex, and other venues such as this I become more hyped and my creative juices start flowing even more. I assisted Pat and Jeannette man (womaned???) the ASG (American Sewing Guild) table and enjoyed my time there. Jeannette Swanson our President of the Los Angeles Chapter brought some of her creations she's decorated with paint sticks. They were priceless. Most of the visitors to the table received a demostration in from Jeanette, and I'm sure she has sparked a lot of interest. The sign up sheets for receiving more information about ASG were pretty hefty. If not yet, soon there will be even more members and participants in our meetings and seminars. That alone is exciting.

BTW, Jeannette teaches conducts classes in sewing and other crafts for the Santa Clarita Parks and Recreation Department.

It was a joy to see all of the vendors and well as visitors mingling and shopping. There are so many new innovations in the market it's unbelievable. Of course, I did a little shopping after seeing a couple of things that were irresistible. Naturally, that was fabric and patterns. We crafts people need our own stimulus package. Just imagine what damage we could to do our wallets with a personal stimulus package, I already have my wish list handy!!!

I will be attending this weekend, and spending part of the time tending the American Sewing Guild - Los Angeles (www.ASGLA.org) Chapter booth. I understand that we are right next to the Ladies' Restroom, so you surely can't miss us!!!

When you stop ASG-LA's by booth you will be able to meet many of our members and see many of the interesting things we learn, and what wonderful times we have when we attend classes, seminars and festivals. Please take time to stop by to get information regarding the organization, and you could even sign-up to be a member right then and there.
