Joi’s third and latest book Ultimate Illustrated Guide to Sewing Clothes is available online on Joi’s website. Joi is already working on a fourth book of sewing techniques that will be out this winter.

Joi has a sewing club and this year, during Season 5, a few of her project special features include her own quilt design the Fashion Bodice Quilt, and her adorable Felted Wool Coat (which will be featured in a variety of fabrics throughout the year).

Joi loves teaching clothing in an approachable fashion. This jacket is lined with a lovely quilting cotton, and the concept for this quilt was inspired by a quilt her grandmother made in the 1950’s.

To study with Joi and learn more about Designer Joi’s Perfect Pattern and Fit Club, go to the store on her website, www.designerjoi.com. Joi also teaches free lessons on her “Sewing Time Live” Facebook program every Thursday at 1pm CST on the DesignerJoiMahon Facebook page.

We look forward to more Wardrobe Builder with Joi in the future!
