Not only will you have increased confidence in yourself in using various store-bought fabrics, but you’ll also learn how to incorporate meaningful fabrics as the focus of your layout. As always I will having you pushing the boundaries of your creativity, while encouraging you to reduce.reuse.recycle castoff fabrics to make them useful again.

Topics Covered in Class...
1. In Raw Form: focusing on the basics of fabric shopping, discussing appropriate fabric adhesives, and exploring ways to incorporate fabric onto your pages in raw form without any extra fuss.
2. Perfectly Polished: focusing on a variety of ways to stabilize fabric, substituting fabric for paper and exploring ways to give fabric a polished look bringing it center-stage.

6. How Do You Do?: focusing on ideas for creating fabric greeting cards & envelopes that are perfectly suitable for mailing.

if you have any questions about online class, you can see some frequently asked questions from my last class here.

the three most common questions i've been asked for this class is:
1. do i have to have a sewing machine? the answer is NO! in this class, there are only 2 examples using a sewing machine and both examples can be done with no sewing at all or be hand-stitched instead.

2. do i have to be there on the exact days the classes are posted? the answer is NO! you can come download your class materials at any time after they are posted and work on the class at your own pace. i am always available to help any of my students even well beyond the time that class dismisses also.

3. do i have to live close to a fabric store to get supplies? the answer is NO! you can find everything we will use in the sewing section at Walmart if going to a fabric store is too overwhelming.

if you have any other questions, please post a comment and i'll answer you right in the comment section! hope to see you in class!



  1. I can't wait for this class! I even broke down and got a sewing machine off of ebay (I have been wanting one for a long time now, so this gave me extrra incentive). One word of caution, some Walmarts don't carry fabrics anymore (at least my superstore stopped) but they still have sewing things. I plan on using clothes I can't wear anymore, some of my kids clothing that have special memories and vintage store finds. Also, I just got some of my mother's clothing (she passed away this year) and plan on using some of her things.
    Okay, ... can we start now??? lol!

  2. This sounds interesting & fun. I think I'll be able to take this one.


thank you for taking time to leave me a comment! i will do my best to leave comments answering any questions you may ask :)
