Face-to-Face Events

Join us for a full and exciting schedule of face-to-face events in 2015, where you’ll see many of your favorite Martha Pullen sewing teachers. We’ll keep you informed about all the dates, locations, teachers and class specifics right here – as soon as every last detail is in place, registration will open!

So …… What’s Coming Up in 2015?

Licensing, licensing, licensing!

Get ready to enjoy one, two or more of the four Martha Pullen Licensing Events planned for 2015! So very many of you shared through the surveys that you would like to have this program come to you, and we listened! We now have two Licensing Events planned to take place in the Southeast this summer, plus two more planned for Orange County, California, the first part of November.

Details about dates, the different Licensing courses, locations and more will appear here very soon! Of course, we’ll send you a notice when online registration is open, and you’ll see all the great things we’ve been busy planning.

But….you don’t have to wait until summer to get your dose of Martha Pullen classes! Let’s talk about what we have planned coming up in March. As you may know, we are part of the same company as Original Sewing & Quilt Expo now. Their staff and ours share the same love of fine sewing, quality events, having fun together and sharing of our lives as you do.

So ….. we’ve paid attention to what we learned from the big survey this past summer, and created more intimate, shorter, more accessible School of Art Fashion events for 2015.

We’ll call them “School of Art Fashion Boutiques” because that’s just what they are …. a curated collection of classes offered by some of your favorite teachers, along with a few who may be new to you. We’ve invited teachers we are confident will provide you with a truly ‘boutique’ experience. But there’s more …..

Each School of Art Fashion Boutique will take place immediately preceding an Original Sewing & Quilt Expo event! Think of it as your Pre-Treat – you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds!

Arrive on Monday evening to a warm southern welcome, some time to settle into your classroom with your teacher and more. Then spend the next two full days sewing, sewing, sewing!

Then, on Thursday, you’ll have the chance to visit Original Sewing & Quilt Expo as a VIP – your Free Admission is just the beginning! We just know you’ll feel refreshed, inspired, renewed….. and ready to shop, see wonderful fashion shows, meet more designers and even take more classes if you’d like!

What is Martha Pullen Teacher Licensing?

Enjoy a unique experience that blends the love of sewing, friendships, skill-building and business opportunity into one spectacular experience at Martha Pullen Licensing Events. Then, share it with others!

Enhance your sewing skills, add a ready-to-teach collection of exclusive curriculum to your business, distinguish yourself as a top-tier educator or just spend time with others who love sewing as much as you do. Become a Martha Pullen Licensed Teacher, recognized throughout the sewing industry as a premier sewing instructor. Or simply enjoy learning the finest techniques using the finest fabrics, threads, laces and embellishments, individually guided by the world’s foremost sewing faculty.

You’ll receive an exclusive, ready-to-teach curriculum. You will co-own the copyright to that curriculum along with Martha Pullen Company for as long as you live. You can either make the projects for sale without limit or, if you are teaching, you can copy the project instructions as you need for your students. Only students licensed for that curriculum can sell or teach these special projects.

Each licensing features unique kits and projects and there is no duplication of a specific project. Of course, you may see favorite techniques repeated from project-to-project or from licensing-to-licensing.

Once licensed, you never have to return for re-certification. But, you may have so much fun that you will want to come back for more licensing collections.

At each licensing, students receive kits for most of the projects in the curriculum. Each beautifully-presented kit contains fabric and all other unique items that are needed to complete the project. In addition to the kits, students receive thread bags containing a selection of thread weights and colors to be used for sewing each kit.

For those licensing curriculums that include machine embroidery designs, students also receive a personal CD with multi-formatted designs for all embroideries used class.

In class, the teachers review each project instruction as they highlight and demonstrate new techniques. As your questions are answered, you’ll receive individualized support and have lots of time to sew.

The techniques used in the licensing curriculum are generic, meaning that any brand of machine can be used. You can sign up for any licensing event at any time. You do not have to take the classes in any particular order. Roman numerals in a licensing title merely indicate the technique and kit collection in that specific curriculum.

Step beyond the ordinary and experience the extraordinary, then share your sewing joy with others! Become a licensed Martha Pullen Teacher! For more information, call 800-699-6309 Monday through Friday 10-5 Eastern time (excluding holidays) or e-mail licensing@marthapullen.com
