: : Two-fer two peas e-course giveaway : :

I'm giving away a free seat in BOTH my sewing e-courses.  Join me on-line to sew two great projects.  Simply leave me a comment here about what other courses you would like to see me offer from my pattern line and I will draw a winner who will receive ONE free registration to both e-courses.  Read on...

Last year, my cousin Andrew and I put together my first e-course, the Tie Tote.  It's been super popular and the paper pattern for the bag followed this Spring.  And now, a crowd pleaser - the Hazel Hipster, is the next in our e-course series.

Both courses offer you a 3 video series that provides an hour or more of instruction broken up into manageable parts.  You get supporting text to go along with it on the project page.  I share my tips for putting the bags together and using:

  • magnetic snaps
  • fusible interfacing
  • topstitching
  • gathering stitch to create a ruffle
  • and more!

With all the hard work that Andrew and I have poured into these e-courses - we would love to have you try them out and spread the word.  They are a great value.  The e-course is $20 / class.  It's like you are there with me on my back porch and I'd love for you to join me!

What happens after you purchase the course?  You will then receive a password so that you can access the class content.  (The course will not be LIVE until August 1st – pre-orders will be accepted, you will receive an email confirmation of your purchase and your access will be sent to you August 1st.)

(Here's a secret...if you are on our newsletter mailing list - a special coupon code AND and early access pass was made available.  Over there on the right - you can sign up too for the next special bargain)

If you purchase the Hazel Hipster AND the Tie Tote course, order both at the same time and we will give you a 15% discount when you purchase both classes at the same time.  (Sorry, does not apply to for previous purchases – only same day purchase of both courses).

Gets even better…if you purchase either course, you can now also get the associated paper pattern (the Fit to be Tied Tote or the Hazel Hipster) as a companion for $8.99.  Just put a note as you check out via Paypal that you would like to add a paper pattern to your order and we will invoice you and send it right out.

And this week...I'm giving away a Two-fer deal.

Simply leave me a comment here about what other courses you would like to see me offer from my pattern line and I will draw a winner who will receive ONE free registration to both e-courses.

Want extra entries?  I'd love if you'd like our Facebook page.  Leave 1 comment telling us you've done so.  Share this post about our e-course giveaway on Twitter and tag me - I'm @trishpreston.  Leave 1 comment telling us you've done so.  That's 3.   Andrew and I sure do appreciate your support, love, and excitement about the patterns and classes.

Here's the fine print : this giveaway will be open until midnight EST, Saturday July 28th.  I'll announce a winner on the 29th - using random.org to pick one of you to get the Two-fer two peas e-course giveaway.

Can't wait to register ?  You'll find our course registrations there in the right side bar.  Excited to sew with you on the back porch! Thank you, thank you, thank you for being wonderful you.  Passionate about sewing as much as me!



{tie-front tote online class coming soon!}

Every time I post about hosting sewing classes locally, I usually get a handful of emails or comments that people wish they were close enough to come join us.  So, we got the idea to put together a "virtual" class so no matter where you are...you can join in!

Our first class is this (up there, that cute red bag!).  It's called, The Tie Tote or Tie - Front Tote...because I haven't actually come up with a more clever name for it as of yet.  It's a bag I have been sewing up for the better part of 8 years now.  I know, right?  Long time.  But I get asked about this bag alot AND it's really easy.

This is a great bag if you are new to sewing and making bags.  It will help you to get your feet wet and build your confidence.  The class will have a private blog area for you to access the 3 separate video classes, loads of text to support what you will see in the video and also a place to chat with me and the others taking the class. (It certainly helps to have a budding film maker in the family - thanks Andrew!  You're awesome!!)

This pattern will also be available in a full color paper version as well next month.  It will be one of the first of the "mini-patterns" that I will be offering at a great price.  So if you don't want to take the class but you want the pattern...hold your horses!  It will be here soon!

Registration for this class will open up next Monday.  That is, if I get all of the technical pieces figured out by then.  Cross your fingers.  I'm not between the ages of 12 and 22 so computer stuff does take me a little longer.

Hope you can join us!
