Kelly Bowser of Kelby Sews. Unfortunately, her printer had an error so the first one I made was a tiny bit too small for the frame. Which was a good thing, because even after the third try I couldn't quite get the corners perfect. But, I ended up with a pouch that I absolutely love, and can't wait to use! Plus, a few more frames to maybe make some Christmas presents...
Katy Jones of I'm a Ginger Monkey. OMG I LOVE her! I was so shy that I could barely speak to her, but I'm still so excited that I got to refine my english paper piecing skills from one of the best!
Christina Lane from The Sometimes Crafter. This might have been my most (sewing) life changing class of all time. I finally learned how to sew curves WITHOUT PINS! OMG the revelation! (Just kidding. Kind of.)
Saturday, I spent my first three sessions in lectures, which afforded me the time to finish two of my English Paper Piecing wheels. I learned all about website design from Melissa Esplin from I Still Love You, successful blogging from Tauni Everett from SNAP! Creativity, and Finishing Details from
Sunni Standing from A Fashionable Stitch. She was so sweet to spend some time the night before teaching me how to adjust the pattern to make room for my larger bustline and empty baby house. My shirt wasn't perfect, but now I'm much more confident sewing knits on a regular machine, and I feel like I can make basic adjustments to simple patterns.
I'm so happy with the classes I took! I'm excited about all the skills I learned and built upon, and all the super-talented people I met. I can't wait to finish up projects and re-make others and start making my own!
