Palmer/Pletsch - Other Activities and Highlights

A few of the ladies signed up for a color analysis, with Ethel Harms (Image Consultant).  Ethel using a remarkable technique to determine which colors are best for your hair, skin, and eye colors.  As part of the consultation, she creates a color palette using your very best colors.

Seriously, once you've had a color analysis, you will ask yourself, "Is this the best color for me?"  I used to think I could wear almost any color.  That's true.  Everyone can.  But is it the best color for your skin, hair, and eye color?  Above is Ethel and Lisa.  Ethel is telling the class about Lisa's color palette.  Ethel gave me a color consultation that revealed some surprises about the best colors for me.  Sorry I don't have my color palette yet.  It's on the way.  More on that later.

Ladies on the Veranda

After the four day fit workshop we were invited to Pati's house for dinner.  She gave us a tour and told stories about how she came to design patterns for McCall's. 

The history of the Haute Couture Fashion Dolls is detailed in Theatre de la Mode

We enjoyed lunch at two of Portland's famous restaurants:  On the shopping tour, we lunched at Whole Grain Store (restaurant)

During Teacher Training Day, we lunched at the McMenamins Edgefield restaurant.

Beautiful murals were painted on the walls and doors throughout McMenamins Edgefield.

Parting Shots: Marta Alto showed and told about one of her fabulous creations, a silk hearts quilt. 

These are the final highlights that I wanted to share.  Now, I'm back to sewing.



  1. Sounds like Portland was a wonderful experience! Maybe I'll get the opportunity to go on day.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to write multiple posts about your P/P Seminar. Sounds like you had a great time and learned some new things, along with meeting some great people.

  3. Thanks for taking the time to post so much info on your Palmer Pletsch class and shopping adventures. I enjoyed reading about them

  4. Thanks so much, Cenetta. I really enjoyed all the commentary and pictures. Felt like I was there with you.

  5. How wonderful that you had access to these opinions and now you can use the experience to translate into your own style. I'm now looking at the new Pants book and I'm wondering if I should get that or the DVD

  6. Thank you for bringing us along--so interesting! (And I have no doubt what an excellent teacher you are/will be.) Elle

  7. Sounds like so much fun, thanks for sharing.

  8. Cenetta, just had the chance to catch up on blog reading. I really enjoyed reading about your PP experience. Sounds like something I would love to do someday.
