Mail Chimp Growing Pains

Hello A-Team:

I am trying very hard to get the list to work in Mail Chimp so that you can control if you want to subscribe or not. It’s coming along. It will probably take me a few weeks to get this right. Please bear with me……………… I know, some of my colors are just not right and I just don’t know how to change them, yet. I will figure this out !!!!!

Housekeeping: Note when you sign into the class on the Class Attendance Verification Form (CAV), you MUST sign in using your full name. Example: Nancy is just not enough of a signature. Jane Doe is much better. Also you MUST sign in the time you came and the time you think you are leaving.

Portfolio: Last week, we learned a whole bunch of different seams and darts. Next week, we will learn an amazing amount about serging. On Tuesday, don’t bring your sewing machines. You will need your cut fabric pieces. And we also have a guest speaker: Paula and Mike Rupley from Central Sewing. On Thursday, bring your machines and learn all about V-necklines. We will also learn how to read a pattern envelope.

Collections: Last Wednesday, our only class for the week, we worked in pairs on the industrials. It was great fun for me to watch as everyone’s fear disappeared. On Monday night, we will be rethreading the overlocks in teams of 4. Have you read your handouts??? Remember to bring needle nose bent tweezers and embroidery scissors. On Wednesday night, we will have a written exam concerning the industrial sewing machines. Your 12 or more croqui collection drawings are due. We need to set in stone, what you will be patterning and sewing in this course.
