PATTERN A LONG : STARTING APRIL 14TH - Coming soon , we will be following a pattern and sewing together week by week via the website. This is FREE but you will be required to purchase a pattern & fabrics for use at home. Again , details will be published on the website shortly.
ALSO NEW THIS TERM :
Can't make classes ? Live too far away ? Got too many children around your feet at bedtime ?
HAVE NO FEAR ! THE SEW A LONG AT HOME SERIES IS HERE !
The sew at home series works like this :
1. You purchase the pack (which includes tutorials , patterns , helpful hints & tips , troubleshooting and more ! )
2. I post them to you in rather snazzy packaging. (uh huh mr postman check us out)
3. You gather all the materials you need
(you can even buy an add on pack and have it delivered if you don't have time to hunt ! )
4. We start on MARCH 19TH - (We will be using a facebook closed group to begin with as our website is not configured for a forum as yet) Links will be in your pack.
I am available between the hours stated on your pack over each week and we work on ONE of the FOUR projects a week in order together with others doing the same course , a bit like open uni only less stressful and more chatter :)
I will be posting videos , photos and answers to lots of your questions so you won't be alone , kind of our own virtual classroom (I am also working on a skype version so you can see my machine)
5. We make one project a week for 4 weeks.
6. When you complete your 4 week course you get a rather fab certificate (I will need to see photos of the finished items hehe)
THIS COURSE IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR ANYONE ATTENDING WEEKLY AS IT COVERS DIFFERENT ITEMS TO TUTORIALS WE HAVE USED IN CLASS.
Hope to see you all in class soon !
