Bra Making with Madalynne 2015 came to a close with a bang. Seriously. The last session went down last weekend with no hiccups, bumps or obstacles. Actually, this was the most seamless workshop yet. Woot woot!
I wouldn’t consider myself a seasoned teacher by any means – I’m still a newbie with about a year and a half of experience under my belt – but I’m quickly learning how every class can be different. The students in the February, June and August sessions were very outgoing and talkative. Like they were best friends. This bunch, however, was different. They were focused, like they were on a serious bra mission. They were quiet, which made me nervous at times, but it was because they were in full concentration mode. That’s not to say the other groups weren’t focused, but this one was more so. So focused that we finished an hour early – at 4:30 PM. Gah! So impressed. And all of their bras were boob-ti-ful (it’s a word, don’t argue).
Leaving the class, I felt grateful. So very grateful for the people who continue to cheer me on, believe in me and not think I’m totally bonkers for having a very small – okay a very big – obsession with lingerie. Giving you all virtual hugs!
Don’t forget that registration is now available for workshops in 2016. The London class is selling the fastest, so gra your ticket soon!
