Meeting Date: Monday, August 16th, 2021
Doors Open: 6:30PM for mixing
Meeting: 7:00PM – 9:00PM

The August guest lecturer is Fabricana’s VP of Purchasing – Myles Hurtubise!


Myles is a lover of all things textile related. He started sewing in his mid-teens and went on to earn his Diploma in Fashion Design and Technology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. He enjoys designing garments for himself and his family. He is also an avid quilter and knitter. His home features much of his work including draperies and upholstery. If you ask his husband, “given the chance, Myles would cover the whole house in fabric!”

Between sewing and knitting projects, Myles also finds time to sing and play the piano and is a novice at the ukulele. He also loves his two “fur babies”, Twig and Whisky.

Myles will cover the important topics of Needle Basics:
– Anatomy of a sewing machine needle
– The Schmetz colour chart
– How to Read the Needle pack
– What needle should I use?
– When should I change my needle?
