Have you heard? We have a fantastic early bird registration offer happening right now for our upcoming Teaching Beginning Sewing Online Licensing. Any of you who enroll by July 17, 2017 will receive Missy Billingsley’s Sweet Baby Quilt video download. This is one of Missy’s most popular workshops, and you will have so much fun creating this adorable keepsake baby quilt. In fact, it will probably become your new go-to baby shower gift, and you’ll learn all sorts of wonderful techniques as you create it.
Let’s take a closer look at this precious project:
The appliquéd center block features machine embroidery beautifully stitched inside an eight-sided scalloped appliqué design. Two machine embroidery appliqué frame design files are included with the video download for you to use in this center block; one frame design includes the word “baby” and the other frame is left blank for you to personalize as desired. The designs are included in three sizes in multiple file formats.
Other embellishment details on the quilt include fun and easy-to-fashion serger puffing and pintucks, which finish two of the nine blocks when joined with bridging.
Four small, nine-patch blocks also provide a lesson in the ease of serger construction. Lace-to-fabric is traditionally worked by sewing machine, but with the rolled hem serger technique, Missy demonstrates how to achieve this classic heirloom finish in a single step; it’s the primary way to attach purchased, embroidered insertion as well as unadorned fabric strips to the last two blocks.
In addition to Missy’s easy-to-follow video guide; an instructional PDF is also included for the quilt.
The quilt is super-cute in blue and yellow, and it’s just as pretty in pink and white:
Of course, everyone who enrolls in the Teaching Beginning Sewing Online Licensing will receive the full licensing curriculum, too. That includes more than 20 fabulous projects ranging from garments and bags to home decor projects and more quilts. Look at some of these pretties:
We’ll show you how to create each one of these projects through both written instructions and video tutorials. The videos are taught by Kathy McMakin, Connie Palmer, Alicia Welcher, Patty Smith and Martha Pullen. You’ll also get Martha’s Beginning Sewing Notebook (an amazing resource full of our favorite techniques), a video with Martha featuring business ideas and more. During the course, our Martha Pullen team will be available to answer any questions you might have about projects, patterns, techniques and teaching methods.
You’ll only need to complete eight required projects to receive your Martha Pullen teacher’s license at the end of the course. This license gives you shared copyright ownership with Martha Pullen Co. for all the projects in this curriculum and their written directions. If you want to teach sewing, you’ll be able to teach all of the projects in this curriculum in your own classes.
If you don’t want to teach, you can make these exclusive Martha Pullen projects for sale. Or just enjoy making them for yourself and as special gifts.
