Let's Make Something!

Elsie and I are so excited to announce our first online class together! We've joined forces to bring you 30 fun projects to brighten up your space and get your mind spinning with possibility. Come back here, or Elsie's blog, Friday morning at 10 AM for a chance to purchase a spot in our new class!



This is an 8 week class by Rachel Denbow & Elsie Flannigan. We've developed some projects individually and some together and can't wait to share our tutorials with you!

The class begins February 15th and lasts for 8 full weeks. There are a total of 30 projects that are spread out evenly over the 8 weeks. The class is hosted on a private blog that only students can see. It's a lot of fun and a great way for us to get to know each other! Each project includes lots of photos & step-by-step instructions (PDFs are included for projects with patterns!).

Each week will also include a private chat with one or both of us (Elsie will host all of the chats except for the week she is in Italy! :D). These chats are lots of fun and will be hosted at a variety of times to fit different schedules. They stay posted, too, so that you can read them if you aren't able to attend!

Class fee is $60 (or $2 per project!)

Please Note:
*This is not a kit. Supplies needed for the class are primarily common household items and inexpensive craft store items. Allowing you to collect these supplies for the projects saves both of us time & money! We are able to offer many more projects in this format than in a traditional class and there are no shipping charges!

*After you have purchased your class spot you will receive an e-mail with log in information to our private blog within 24 hours!

*We do have a limit on available spots. We will be keeping this class small enough that we can communicate with every person individually through our chats and project conversations. :)

*These 4 sample projects are the only images that we will be posting of our class projects outside of our private blog. Class projects are exclusive!

Sounds amazing!
Have you guys ever though of maybe doing a free class sometime?

RachelDenbow said...

We're offering these classes as a way to support ourselves and pursue the things we love so we're unable to offer these kinds of classes for free. The time and energy that goes into them doesn't make it possible to offer them for free at this time.
Maybe someday!

Sharon Corn said...

I would love to sign up for the class, but do I need to know how to use the sewing machine? Coz I dont own one and absolutely clueless on how to use one. I love embroidery & crafting though.

Do let me know ya! Thanks!

Klara J said...

Are we talking 10am Missouri time?
I'm in Australia, and will set my alarm for 1am. I couldn't do the last class because it ran over my wedding and honeymoon. How's that for luck?! :D But now I can't wait!!!
So. Excited.

Hmmm...I think this might be worth it for the embroidery patterns alone...
