This title begs the question, “When is sewing not a party?”
I know or as my 16-year old daughter would say, “right?” Sewing and partying go together like red beans and rice or running and napping.
The Sewing Party I’m referring to though is a special sewing party.
Here’s the description directly from the organizers:
“The Sewing Party” is the first ever online-all-day DIY event in history!
On November 8, 2014, thousands of DIY-ers will gather for a fun-filled day of sewing and crafting classes taught online by leading bloggers and educational experts. It’s all about Connecting. Crafting. And Creating.
Attendees will have access to more than 30 online classes available on the day of the event and for an additional 90 days. There is truly something for everyone! Classes include home décor, fashion sewing, quilting and upcycling, crafting, costume design, techniques for turning your craft into an entrepreneurial venture, and more!
Space is limited and likely to fill up fast! For just $40, “The Sewing Party” participants can attend classes; chat with participants from across the country; interact with top bloggers and educational experts who are teaching; and explore the latest crafting and sewing tips, techniques and products in our marketplace.
Hey, did you notice that one of the topics being taught is quilting?
Guess who is teaching a quilting class and filmed that class in her very own studio this past Wednesday?
No, not her, silly…me.
It was lights, cameras, action and I was chatting up my Strips and Bricks pattern and walking through all the materials, measurements, and necessary steps to make this super fun, super easy quilt.
If you register for the event, you get the opportunity to learn from so many amazing teachers. Also, if two classes conflict and you’re registered, you have 90 days post the event to view the classes. In other words, there are no conflicts. Anything that’s listed, you can see and learn.
