Announcing NEW Whipstitch e-Courses!

Y’all.  I am so, so excited.  In the midst of all the other excitement going on, I am delighted to announce new Whipstitch e-Courses for this fall!

I’ve been wanting to offer online classes for ages now, and have finally worked out the details to make it happen.  I worked hard to choose topics that are in demand and that I feel passionately about, so that I can bring you content that will help you get where you want to go with your sewing!  First up, in just a few weeks, is Sewing with Knits, designed to get you started sewing confidently and artfully with knit fabrics–without a serger!   With all the amazing knit fabrics out right now–from Patty Young’s collection for Michael Miller to City Weekend from Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S–there is a whole mess of eye candy waiting for you to stitch it up.  Don’t let a new fabric scare you!  This e-course is designed to walk you through the steps of sewing knits of all types step-by-step so that you can create amazing projects with total confidence.  This is a five-week online class with insane amounts of very cool content, and I am about to bust from excitement–I can’t even tell you how hard it was for me to wait until today to break the news!  I am totally looking forward to having you join us all.  See all the details here!

Then, in November, a course near and dear to my heart: Crafty Business Basics, where we’ll look at how to start, run & grow your sewing business!  Five weeks of exploring all the angles of turning your sewing machine into your own crafty enterprise.  There is a whole world of handmade fabulousness out there, and I hear all the time from folks who love to create and who have the most amazing original ideas–but who have no business experience and don’t know where to even begin to find a way to sell their designs.  Worse, there are crafty folk who don’t take the steps to sell their creations because they’re concerned that if they start a business it will take over their whole lives and leave no room for anything else–like their day job or their families.  Nothing could be further than the truth!  A sewing and craft business can exist on a lot of scales, and we’ll cover details of all of them–from dining room table cottage industry for pocket money all the way up to global stitch domination.  Details here, below the Sewing Knits e-Course!

Seriously over-the-moon delighted to meet new faces, share all the things I love, and watch you take off running in the courses!

Happy Stitching!

    Wohoo!!! I am so excited that you are making online courses. We have a beautiful fine fabric store here in Lubbock but they only offer classes in quilting and they are more social than learning. I am self taught via books but want to learn so much more. Thanks for taking the time to make this happen.

    Oh, the knit class sounds FANTASTIC!
    Can you give us an idea of the very appx cost of supplies (fabric) for the course. I am super interested, but also feeling kinda low in the cash department so I want to make sure I’m not getting in over my head. Thanks!
