HI DARLINGS! Ok so I don’t post too much about the SEW IT ACADEMY but I should because I know there are so many of you in different stages of your sewing journey but knowing to sew from the very beginning and learning techniques and skills that you may not even be aware of is recurring theme for so many who joined thinking they “knew” the beginning  stuff already and were really surprised at just how much they missed.

So…. I thought I would share a few things you should know 😉

  1. When you join you gain access to all the courses to date. Start at the beginning or skip ahead (although not recommended)
  2. You get access to my private Facebook group for support and a chance to meet like minded women and some men who are learning with you.
  3. The courses never expire so you work at your own pace.
  4. IN 2017 THE $11.97 MONTHLY RATE IS GOING UP SO JOIN NOW!
