Learn to embroider with me any time, any where in my Craftsy class Design it, Stitch it: Hand Embroidery! Learn over 25 decorative stitches, my favorite transfer techniques, tips on designing your own patterns, and tricks for stitching on stretchy materials. We make two fun projects and you get lots of extra patterns drawn by me to play with. Bonus: embarrassing pictures of me as a kid and silly stitch puns! Yay!! Sign up here!

This class is for makers looking to grow their shops by improving their product photography. I designed this class for you! After years of being both maker and photographer (accountant, CEO and janitor too!) I wanted to share my experience with you. In this class you'll learn basic camera functions for a DSLR, how to use and manipulate natural light, create a simple table top setup, work with models, prop style, and basic post production. I'm so excited about this class & hope it can be helpful for creative makers! Sign up here!
