Biography

Pamela Leggett has been teaching sewing since 1981. Specializing in pattern fitting and fine garment skills, she has developed a fun and informative teaching style that is now available in her patterns and instructional DVD's.

One of Pamela's passions is creating garments that flatter and fit the wearer. Her desire to teach others to achieve the perfect fit led her to the Palmer/Pletsch pattern fitting method, which she has used to help hundreds of women successfully achieve good fit and a renewed love of garment sewing.

It is with this knowledge that she created Pamela's Patterns, which have many fitting solutions and adjustments built-in to the patterns.

Pamela's Patterns have been reviewed and featured in Threads and Sew News Magazines, Sawyer Brook Distinctive Fabrics, Patternreview.com, Gorgeous Fabrics, and Nancy's Notions and Clotilde Catalogs. Pamela has also been a contributing writer for Threads Magazine, Creative Publishing and Janome and teaches for sewing guilds, stores and conferences.

In 2012, Pamela joined forces with Pati Palmer to host The Palmer/Pletsch East School of Sewing at Steve’s Sewing, in King of Prussia PA. Classes offered are Pattern Fitting, Pants Fitting/ Sewing and Knits Fitting/Sewing.

Pamela is a contributing writer and DVD personality for Threads Magazine, starring in two serger DVD's. In September 2015, Pamela will guest on Sewing With Nancy on PBS for two episodes on making The Perfect T-Shirt.

Born and raised in Michigan, Pamela moved to Connecticut in 1980 and managed Manchester Sewing Center for 24 years. She has two children and four beautiful grandchildren. Pamela’s “home” store is Steve's Sewing, Vacuum & Quilting in King of Prussia, PA where she teaches serger, garment sewing and fitting classes.
