Educational Opportunity and an Alterationist Job at Viejas

Hi A-Team !!!!!

Check out the blog. If you haven’t seen it lately, then you don’t know that I have fixed the problem that the A-Team emails were NOT showing up on the blog.

This coming week, starts the second session of the Continuing Education 2013 Summer Program. Come to class and learn !!!!!! The Air-Conditioner works….most of the time……

Drape Drape: I saw so many toile samples this week. They are coming out gorgeous !!!! Here is your chance to change the pattern so it can be alittle longer, shorter, wider, or a bit less revealing. I was going to base the grading of the first session on the toiles, but it turns out, that was NOT fair. So I based it on your attendance hours. THAT IS FAIR. I only gave out incompletes to students who got 15 or more hours in for the month of June.

The Embroidered Purse: The spider got separated out from the spider web this past week. Linda stitched the web out with Glow in the Dark thread. What fun !!!!!!!! Thursday, was stitch out day. Next week, we only meet on Tuesday. We will be in the computer room 203. Come and learn a bit about embroidery software programs. I gave out only incompletes for the first session of this course. In this way, I can add the first session to the second session and give out certificates at the end of July. I only gave out incompletes to students who got 15 or more hours in for the month of June.

Check out this educational Opportunity and Job Offer !!! If you are interested in learning more about sergers and serging call and register for this 3 day course. I have attached the flyer to this email.  It is after my signature.  Double click on it and a readable jpg will pop up.
