Zippy Skippy Trippy

I have a rather large announcement to make today. Something that I've been dying to get off my chest for a bit now actually and this coupled with other things that have happened here in the happy land of all things A Fashionable Stitch are the primary reasons I haven't blogged as much usual.

So anyway, today I have a treat for you. There's a free class at Craftsy with your name on it. That's right, your name. on. it. I taught the class and can I just state for the record, there is something completely unnerving about watching yourself on tv, or the internet as the case maybe. It's surreal. It's weird. It's uncanny. I can't get over it. Whatever. We shot the classes in November and Craftsy did their crafty thing and put it all together for you in a wonderful little package and its on....... Zipper Insertions! Hip Hip Hooray! The official name of the class is Mastering Zipper Techniques and I go through, step by step, how to insert a slot seam, invisible and lapped zipper all by machine. Plus there's a class on how to handle the slot seam and invisible zipper with a lined/faced garment. I think there's something in there for everyone. Even if you're an intermediate sewer, its always fun to see how someone else does something, right? I think you'll all enjoy yourselves and hopefully pick up a tip or two along the way. I had a ball doing it all!

And if nothing else, now you can experience what I sound like. And then you can ask yourself, "Wow, does she really sound like that?" To which I would say, "That's funny. I asked myself the exact same thing." And I did. Like I said, it's different watching yourself on tv. Oh, how do movie stars do it? So hop on over to Craftsy and Zipper out! Don't forget, this class is FREE! That's right, I said FREE FREE FREE! Knock yourselves out! Yay!

Can I geek out for just a minute more too with y'all? I don't know if I've ever stated this, but my absolute, hands down, favorite movie of all time is Bridget Jones's Diary. I'm totally silly like that. So, on my plane trip to Denver to shoot this class guess what exploded in my bag - why my BLUE chalk pen of course. It wasn't the white one or the pink one, no it was the blue one. And there was blue on nearly all of my sewing supplies that I brought for the taping. Yup. Blue. Blue soup. My god, is that blue soup/chalk pen? Why yes, yes it is. Thank you. Very. Much.
