Courses, Course Sales and Sewing Humour

NSCAD Continuing Studies just put out its list of Summer 2015 courses. Not too much on the fashion and textiles section except Beginner Sewing and Weaving, which could definitely be interesting. But lots of other interesting and artistic courses as well!

From Faye, Craftsy is having a class flash sale THIS WEEKEND ONLY. Up to 50% off on almost 700 classes. If you want to focus on sewing classes, please click here instead. THIS WEEKEND ONLY remember! (Apr 11 & 12).

And from Kathleen, a little humour… :)

Thanks Faye and Kathleen!

XQ Hand Embroidery of Viet Nam

XQ Hand Embroidery of Viet Nam

I am back from Viet Nam and I bring you this!

We’re not an embroidery guild, but some of us do it, and there is an embroidery guild here in Halifax. If you’ve seen better hand embroidery anywhere in the world than what these folks do, please do share! :)

These people have museums throughout the country that if you loved your embroidery that much, you could do a tour of the country and see all these museums with their art work and ceremonies!

Wild Ginger Sale

Wild Ginger is having a “Time Sensitive” sale! I use this software for much of my sewing. I’ve just been working on pant fitting from patterns, and went back to my Wild Ginger. It gives me the ability to input my fitting adjustments once and have them apply to everything I do. It’s not for everyone and it does have a learning curve, but it works for me.
