If you haven’t come to class this semester, because Life has been getting in the Way – I can help !!!!! I can now open up my classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for you to come and sew in West City Center’s room 209. I will be able to help you, with your personal projects, from 5 to 6 PM in my Tuesday/Thursday course. Of course, the class is open till 9 PM, so you are welcome to stay for the entire class. You can also borrow one of the school’s home machines to sew on. I do have “Sew Along with Joanie” demos to perform from 6 to 9 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
On Mondays, I teach embroidery. We will be embroidering our zodiac stitch outs. I will be able to whittle down the help list from 5:30 till 8 PM. At 8 PM, I do need to give a quiz and go over the answers. If you choose to come on Mondays…..the class starts at 5:30 PM and goes till 9 PM.
You are welcome to come to any of these 3 classes. On Wednesday nights, I teach in a computer classroom. If you are interested in this class, speak to me personally. Hope to see you all this week !!!!!!!
What’s happening in the courses
Embroidery: Every Monday we stitch out what we edited with Embird on the previous Wednesday. It’s getting easier. You can edit more than one zodiac design in the class period. We did the buffalo and started the rat. I know that some of you, are getting close to needing a second project. We will discuss this in class. I have 2 wonderful projects planned. As a class, we will need to pick one so that I can set it up.
Niche Marketing: In the computer room last week, we had presentations on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and Blogs. We even had a comparison done !!!!! You can see how important these web sites are to your clients. Public Relations and Marketing done on these sites will definitely help your business because these sites are where your customers and future customers hang out. This coming Monday, you have Quiz #3 at 8 PM. On Wednesday, you need to start the research for your Power Point Marketing Plan. Redesigning 15 slides takes time. Time to get good in the program and time to make the slides authentically your own.
Sew Along with Joanie: Portfolio: Last week, we did progressively harder seams. We learned the slot seam, the classic French seam and the French serged variation seam last Tuesday. This was just too easy. So we also did the curved seam. We learned how to ease and how to staystich. These are two very very important techniques. Last Thursday, we learned how to cord a seam, flat fell a seam and how to inset a corner into a seam. This coming week, we will be learning all about elastic and sleeve caps on Tuesday. On Thursday, we are going to have a great time with the sergers. You will LEARN the variety of seams that these machines can do. It will be great fun.
See you all in class !!!!!
