Ray Stitch Presents An Evening with Pattern Cutter Alice Prier - We have carefully curated an event programme packed full with talks from inspiring designers, innovators and creators.


Join us for a fun evening of show & tell with expert pattern cutter and author Alice Prier.


Our pattern cutting tutor Alice Prier has recently returned from a 3 month trip which encompassed the freezing Antarctic, the steamy Amazon, volunteering to help clear a forest trail in hurricane hit Dominica and hobnobbing with the jet set on Mustique - and all out of a medium sized suitcase! En route she found the worlds most southerly haberdashery, learned to embroider with the Zuleta women in Ecuador and taught the ladies in the tourist office in Jamaica how to cut a pattern.


Alice will give you lots of tips on sewing a minimal travel wardrobe with maximum versatility and demonstrate how she made a 'Pattern Magic' dress en route, which you can make from the comfort of your sun lounger.>


Alice originally trained as a costume designer but shortly after she set up her couture clothing company Alice & Co over 20 years ago, making smart outfits for city women. She has cut patterns commercially for companies such as Harrods, ASOS and M&S. She has also written her first book, Pattern Making Templates for Skirts and Dresses which has recently been published. Whenever she can, Alice likes to travel the world writing her fashion travel blog where2wearit.com


This two hour event begins with a 30 minute reception with free drinks and snacks followed by an hour’s talk and then a 30 minute Q and A at the end.
