I'm teaching at The Sewing Party!

By now you've probably heard at least a little bit about The Sewing Party. [Well, whether you have or not, get ready because I'm gonna tell you about it.]

The Sewing Party is the first ever online DIY conference. What does that mean exactly? It means that 'attendees' get access to 30+ educational videos that cover everything from garment construction to bra making to cosplay costumes to buying a sewing machine. The main event will be Saturday, November 8th. On that day, all the videos will go live on The Sewing Party's website. Teachers will be on hand throughout the day for live chatting to answer questions, and you can also shop in virtual vendor booths and interact with other sewists.

Attendees will then have access to all the content for 90 days, since obviously it would be hard to watch 30 different classes in one day [and actually impossible unless you have to power to stop time].  Tickets are $40.

I will be teaching two of the classes. The first one is called Knits 101, and it's all about how to sew knits with your regular machine. All attendees will get a free PDF pattern along with the class called the Morgan Tee, which is a fun and easy slouchy t-shirt that will help reinforce the material we learn.

[I've been wearing Morgan Tees in a few of my posts recently if you want to check them out! The horse tee and the buffalo plaid tee are both Morgans.]

The second class I'm teaching is called 6 Essential Sewing skills, and it covers some basic stuff that is useful for lots and lots of different projects. If you're reading my blog because you already sew then you probably know most of the things in there, but it still could be useful for brushing up or if the material is new to you!

Like I said, there are many other video classes you can watch, so be sure to check out the classes page if you're interested. And if you want a little preview, they're going to start releasing trailers of some of the classes soon on The Sewing Party Facebook and Instagram pages.

Lauren of Lladybird and Nancy who owns The Fabric Studio are also both Sewing Party teachers, and since we're all here in Nashville we shot our videos on the same day in Nancy's space. Here are some behind the scenes photos!

I also had another shoot day in a different place, a set at the Singer/Viking/Pfaff offices outside Nashville.

You can sign up for The Sewing Party all the way up until the day before. I can't wait to see everyone else's videos, and to listen to myself talk on camera NOTTTTTT!!!!

  6. The staff is really helpful; we brought in a cake from our preferred baker for no additional cost. The separate bar and patio area were great for holiday party cocktail hour.
