I've mentioned before that I've been working on developing a class to teach how to use rulers with a stationary machine, whether a domestic sewing machine or a sit down long arm. The class is all ready to go and I'll be offering it locally on a small scale.
Sadly, the summer has been busier than I had planned and I am slowly working on the sampler quilt that will showcase many of the designs in this class. I can't be too disappointed that it's not done as I've been making up some fun time with my kids after finishing up my big project of the summer.
My big secret project? Well, it had me boarding a plane for the first time in 18 years, so this could happen:
If you've taken advantage of the fabulous learning platform that is Craftsy, this scene is familiar to you. That's right, I'm releasing a ruler work class on Craftsy and it should be available towards the end of this month!
Squeeeeeeee! You can't imagine how hard it has been to not announce it here as soon as it was a certainty! Especially as so many readers had commented that they wished I would do a class with Craftsy.
The exact release date isn't established yet, but my filming is all done. Craftsy is doing their post production work making sure you get a high-quality class. (Kindly put, among other things, they're cutting out all the bits where I got flustered and messed up!)
I'm looking forward to telling you more about the experience and the class. In the meantime, I've got some great posts lined up and I'll be showing more of my ruler work sampler. I'm hoping to post pictures of it when finished on the "projects" forum of my class alongside pics that I hope my students will post also.
