From the Ann Arbor District Library website:
Nationally-known sewing expert Gretchen “Gertie” Hirsch is a passionate home seamstress, a sought-after sewing teacher, and the creator of one of the most popular sewing blogs on the web - Gertie’s New Blog For Better Sewing - a place to share tutorials and lively posts about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender.
A sewing enthusiast from Beacon, New York, Gertie has a love of all things retro. Now - meet Gertie in person, right here at AADL!! Hear about her blog, her craft and her book “Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing: A Modern Guide to Couture-Style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques.”
An extension of her blog, this brand-new book is packed with lessons on couture techniques, customization and Gertie’s spirited, modern style. The event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.
