Sara's Sassy Librarian Blouse + Craftsy Sale!

September 18, 2014


I was so thrilled when fabric and pattern designer Sara Lawson recently chose to make and review my Craftsy class, the Sassy Librarian Blouse. Seriously, how insanely cute is her version?! I am honored when such a busy person takes the time to make and review one of my patterns, plus this required her to watch the whole class! 

If you want to read her review, check it out here on her blog Sew Sweetness. She goes into detail about certain elements of the class and what she particularly liked. 


And if you want to make your own, you're in luck because Craftsy is running their annual big fall sale, where all classes are on sale! Click here to check out my class and all the others that are currently on sale. There are some amazing instructors on there, so hop to it! Seriously, look at just some of the sewing classes below! The fall sale runs through Monday, September 22, so pop on over and sign up to learn some new skills!


Craftcation 2015!

September 17, 2014


If you've been reading my blog for a while, this is not the first time you're learning about the insanely fun Craftcation Conference that takes place in the beach-side community of Ventura, CA every spring. Well, believe it or not, it's time to think about signing up for next year's event!

Craftcation 2015 will take place from March 26–29, 2015 and yours truly will again be in attendance! I've been at this event since year one and I hope to be there every year moving forward. The energy of the attendees is contagious and a great time is always had by all.

Though it's not released yet, I can tell you that one of the classes I'll be teaching is my upcoming Marianne Dress! Want to learn how to sew with knits? Yep, this is the year! I'll also be teaching a class on basic garment construction skills like darts, gathering, and the like. And making a return will be the really popular and fun zipper bag class.

The list of presenters grows every year and gets more and more impressive. Seriously, check it out here and find your favorite crafter!

So, why are we talking about it now? Because it's time to sign up! And if you sign up now, there is an early registration discount to be had! Plus the first 50 guests get an extra discount! Learn all about it on the registration page.

I hope to see you there!
