All About Our Online Licensing Events


Me and Martha taping for Teaching Beginning Sewing II

It’s here! Registration is open for our new Martha Pullen Online Licensing program: Teaching Beginning Sewing II. We had so much fun taping the videos for this course for you this summer, and I can’t wait to be able to share it with all of you. The course begins Nov. 15 and is taught by me, Peggy Dilbone, Alicia Welcher, Pam Mahshie, Connie Palmer and Charlotte Potter, and of course hosted by Martha Pullen. This Teaching Beginning Sewing II Online Licensing will prepare you to teach beginning sewing while giving you a tried-and-true curriculum of fabulous projects. The curriculum features over 30 – yes, 30! – projects ranging from garment construction and bag making to quilting and home decorating. This curriculum even includes some projects that are perfect for teaching children and teenagers how to sew! We’ll show you how to make all the projects through both written instructions and step-by-step how-to videos on both the techniques and projects, and provide you with ready-to-teach handouts for all the projects.

In addition, you’ll get Martha’s Beginning Sewing Notebook, which includes almost every beginning sewing technique imaginable, tips on how to improve your teaching skills and much more. By the way, there is no prerequisite for the course – Roman numerals in a licensing name simply indicate the curriculum collection, since projects in each licensing collection are unique to that particular licensing.


Martha showing off the fabulous Serger I projects

Of course, you can also still register through Monday for our Serger I Online Licensing. The curriculum in this course includes over 20 wonderful serger projects, ranging from quilting and home decorating to totes and garment construction. In addition to the projects, we’ll prepare you to give instruction on how to thread a serger, identify parts and settings used for general serging methods, master tips and tricks for specialty serging, use additional serger feet and so much more.

Do you have to want to teach to take a licensing course? Absolutely not – people tell me all the time at our live events that they’d love to take one of our licensing courses and receive a beautiful collection of licensed Martha Pullen projects BUT they don’t want to teach. Rest assured, we have many people who attend our licensings who don’t plan to teach. Everyone is welcome!

During both of these online licensing courses, I and the rest of our Martha Pullen Licensing faculty will be available to answer any question you might have about projects, patterns and teaching methods. You will have licensing privileges from the day you submit and pass all required projects. And don’t worry, you don’t have to complete ALL the projects in the curriculum to get your license. There are seven required projects in Teaching Beginning Sewing II and eight in Serger I. Having a Martha Pullen license means that you can either make the projects for sale without limit or, if you are teaching, you can make as many copies of the project instructions as you need for your students.

Visit our Online Licensing site to register for either of these online courses!

Want to join us for one of our live and in-person events? We have plenty of those coming up, too! We’ll be in Fredericksburg, VA next week for our School of Art Fashion Boutique, then we’ll head to Costa Mesa, CA in November for two back-to-back licensing events – Serger II and Vintage, Classic, Contemporary – as well as a special one-day Martha Pullen And More event. Click here to visit our live events site to learn more or register!

We pray for the men and women serving our nation in harm’s way, and for all of you.

Much Love to You All & May God Bless,
Kathy McMakin
