Sewbussted's Material Witness Is Back!

I am so happy! 
Last Friday, I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with master sewist, Tchad Elliot(in the video, you'll learn how to pronounce his name). What an extraordinary talent he is! He has a fabulous studio where he offers classes, right in the heart of Chicago. In the video, you can hear a little about his passion. 

Just to inspire, here are a few of his students.

This young woman made both her shirt and skirt with Tchad. Talk about a perfect fit!

I have had the pleasure of meeting Ankit. He has a passion for design. This is his second project EVER!!! A tailored jacket that includes welt pockets.

A gown in progress. 

In this picture you see Tchad with the bride who created her wedding gown, which we talk about in the video. 

And with her husband. Dreamy beautiful :) In the video Tchad talks about the process and journey she went through to create this gown.

Tambour beading is one of the many classes that Tchad offers at his studio.

I hope that you enjoy meeting Tchad as much as I enjoyed getting to know him. And I hope too that he will inspire you to reach for your dreams :)

For more information, or to schedule a class or workshop, you can find Tchad here;

  1. Hi Rhonda, what a fantastic video. You are sparkling in it. Tchad looks like a riot and is such a talented designer. I really wish that I was in Chicago to go take some classes with him. His enthusiasm really shines out. What beautiful garments his students have made. That wedding dress especially is such a fairytale gown. Thank you for sharing this. Xx
