Our Teaching Beginning Sewing Online Licensing program kicks off Feb. 23! The course was first held last spring (our very first online licensing event) – and we are so excited to offer it again. This tried-and-true curriculum will prepare you to teach beginning sewing and includes 20+ projects to download and videos to support the project instructions – plus you have access to some of the best sewing teachers in the world. Check out what a few of our licensed teachers who have taken an online licensing have to say about the experience:
I find the online course the Martha Pullen instructors designed to be outstanding–who would expect less? As a former high school and college teacher, I know quality instruction when I see it and you’ll find these courses easy to navigate, with clear instructions and state of the art technology. What’s not to love? I’ve been a devoted MP fan for some time and due to the travel involved, was unable to attend a training in person, but the online programs are the next best thing. The connections with our teachers and sense of community we developed as classmates happened immediately and I hope to continue the relationships I’ve developed with my new friends and classmates long after the class ends. I love seeing the projects everyone is finishing as we progress together through the course and the flexibility in how we meet the deadlines and complete the projects allows for everyone to “tailor” the course to his or her own personal needs.

Attending a Martha Pullen teacher licensing class in person has been a long-time goal of mine. For a number of reasons (finances, care giver to my disabled mother, etc.) I put my goal on the ‘back burner’ and accepted that I simply would not realize that goal any time soon. Wow, was I ecstatic when I learned about the online teacher licensing course! And to be a part of the very first class is such an honor.
The content is superb, the instructors are excellent, and Miss Martha herself makes me feel like I am sitting there in front of her being encouraged to succeed.
My local Bernina dealer has already asked me to present a class proposal to them. All they wanted to know was that I was becoming a Martha Pullen licensed Beginning Sewing Teacher. Thank you Martha Pullen Company.

I have to admit that even though I was so excited when I first saw that the Beginning Sewing Licensing course was going to be offered online, I wasn’t sure if it was for me. I was nervous. I have been sewing for years, attended local classes, but always seemed to downplay my ability. My husband, family and friends were encouraging me to take part in the course, but I still took much time to consider my time, my ability… I registered for the class the day before the deadline! ~~ I am so happy I signed up!!!! It is non-intimidating. The videos are so clear and informative and fun. The projects, instructions, patterns are done so professionally. My first project, the A-Line skirt looks like it came from a store, and includes my first lap zipper! My confidence has really grown through just this first project. The message board gives you the ability to meet other participants, share project pictures and personal insights. The easy access to the staff to ask those technical questions is priceless. Would I sign up for another, definitely! I now see the real potential of doing somthing I have always wanted to do: hold private sewing classes in my home! Thank You to the staff of Martha Pullen for opening a new door by providing online licensing.
