You will need to be able to take a photo of your work, and upload it to the class blog. You will get instructions on "blogging" so don't worry if you don't currently do that now; you will learn.
But, you DO NEED to have an operating camera and be able to take photos.
You do need a basic understanding of how to save these photos and then retrieve those picture files
 
NOTE: You will be given class handouts/instruction in the form of emails and pdf documents.
 The pdf files can be opened with Adobe Reader (free software on the Adobe.com site)

 You need to be able to open these handouts/instructions and save them.
You can also print as you desire. In total, the course contains over 200 pages of information...so paper/printer will be required if you want to retain a hard copy of this information.
 
Hugs, and I hope to see you in the class!

Joyful Embellishments

If you want some great seam inspiration, consider the Facebook group Joyful Embellishments, began by Valerie Bothell.








She posts five seams each week for every member to try. It's a great way to practice stitches and find some new "favorites". I found a few minutes these past couple of weeks to work on some of the seams posted to date. Hugs!
