We are fortunate to have Nancy Seifert, Palmer/Pletsch Certified Sewing Instructor, and Pacific Fabrics join forces with Palmer/Pletsch to bring our popular fit workshops to the Seattle area. Nancy began teaching Palmer/Pletsch methods in 2002 and says, I was hooked! Finally, a method that made sense. 

Nancy has trained with Pati Palmer and Marta Alto at multiple Portland, OR, workshops and has been a popular and successful teacher of Palmer/Pletsch Pant, Fit, and Jacket classes in the Seattle area for ten years.

Our first workshops will be held in the newly restyled Pacific Fabrics store in the SODO district south of Safeco Field in Seattle. We love holding our workshops in a fabric store so that whatever you may need or want is readily available. Pacific Fabrics is part of a local, family owned company over 100 years old that began as a metal recycling business. They are now one of the largest FASHION fabric regional chains in America.

Do You Need a Hotel?

Pacific Fabrics has suggested the Silver Cloud near Safeco for lodging; it is probably the closest to their location. The Best Western is another option, just farther away.

This was my first time attending a Palmer/Pletsch workshop and I will definitely return for all the offered courses. I intend to make this a yearly vacation just for me. I never once thought seriously about my business back in New York City while in Portland.
