I am taking yet another serger class through Martha Pullen... but this time on-line. With all the other classes, I attended in person. When attending a class in person, kits for each project were made available and you were able to see, touch, ask questions, and exam each project up close. But.. attending a class in person has a price tag of $3000, (plus airfare). This price doesn't only include your kits, but most meals as well. To take the class on-line is $500...you provide your own supplies and work at your own pace...you have 6 months to comply and finish each project....after that the videos and instructions are no longer available. I am finding that I prefer the in-person classes much more. I enjoy the companionship of others to encourage me to finish my project AND the availability of teachers should I need help. Every day there always seemed to be some new technique that was shared, along with various specials that are not offered anywhere else. Do I still get my license by taking these classes on-line? Yes, but the loss of friendships made along with the dialog and laughs between so many incredible women is lost....alone in my sewing room doesn't seem to replace that.
I loved using the 12 wt., variegated thread to finish off all of the edges. This was super easy to make and I can't wait to begin on the next project..
What are you working on??
