Online Courses, New Book and other news!

Wow, is all I can say.  Things have really been crazy here.  I have so many projects going on that my head is spinning.  I’m sorry I haven’t been able to update this blog in a couple weeks.

Update1:  My Crochet Book “Animal Lovie Blankets”  Is now also available at Hobby Lobby and a smaller versions are now available at Wal-Mart.  That is super exciting since my granddaughter saw them and was so proud of Grandma Yoli.  It makes my heart happy to see her smiling face.   You can purchase your copy at:  Joannes, Hobby Lobby, Walmart and Michaels.    It is also available as a digital download from Leisure Arts.  Click here to purchase.  

Update 2:  I am in the processing of writing down a lot of my patterns.  It has been a slow process since I now have about 550 of them to write down.. (test) and photograph the items.  Hopefully that will be done within the next year.  I want to be able to make them available for everyone.

Update 3:  I am also working on the videos for a Crochet Course.  I asked everyone a few weeks ago what they wanted to learn.   So far I have heard;

*  Reading Patterns

*  Understanding Crochet Diagrams

* Crocheting in the Round

* Crocheting basic stitches

* Crochet techniques

I am including these in my course.   I will also have a bonus video for Blog members.   If there are any other things you want to include please write it down in the comments below.

Update 4:   Lots of you have asked for sewing videos.   I want to be able to narrow down what type of sewing videos you want to see.   Please write your preferences using 1, 2, 3 for your preference.

*  Understanding a sewing machine (what do all those dials do?)

* How to use sewing patterns

* Quilting Lessons

* Sewing basic garments

* Sewing formal dresses

* Sewing bags

I will use that information in order to make videos that you want to watch.

I appreciate your patience and help with the survey.   Write down your comments below.

    I would definitely like a course on how to use sewing patterns and basics on how to sew garments together. I am interested in sewing some baby, and toddler clothes. Thank you.

    I would like to learn how to knit again. Been 50 years ago when my grandmother showed me how. Tried to do it again the other day. Needless to say that it didn’t look to good. Lol!

    (1)I would love any sewing tutorials. I am presently doing a lot of (2) machine embroidery and I do have problems with the thread getting balled up under the plate. I think that the towel wasn’t stretched tight enough in the hoop. Do you do (3)hoopless embroidery?

      Are you using a stabilizer as well. This will help keep the loops of the fabric under control. You are correct that it seems the key to successful machine embroidery is getting everything very taunt on the hoop. I don’t have any tutorials for this but this is a man that has quite a few his name is Vince. Here is the link for his channel.
