The third class was only one student and even though she missed out on the positive effects of being in a group, she had the benefit of my full attention. I would not have done this if I hadn’t known her and been sure that we would have fun together. 8 hours of awkwardness would most certainly not constitute as a benefit.
Auditioning fabrics is always an interesting process which some dread and others enjoy.
I can always offer support and suggestions, but in the end it’s all about what the students like. There’s no point in making something which someone else likes, is there.
The best design tool is taking pictures. Lots of pictures all through the process. It will give you something to flip through to see what worked and what did not. Little changes often make big impacts, so swap positions or a fabric or two and see what happens.
Accurate piecing requires full concentration; apart from the humming from the machines, you could hear a pin drop.
Quite a few have asked about the possibility for online Mrs Moen classes, and I have had some very interesting conversations with some of you about this topic. While the hands on approach is key to some of the techniques I teach, this particular class would transfer very well into such a format, so I will be setting up an online class in English for the fall season. I will need some guinea pigs, so stay tuned:)
