I must say, I don’t like the word “webinar.” It kind of creeps me out. So I’m calling this little talk I’m doing an “online workshop,” at least here among you guys on the blog. Doesn’t that sound nicer?
So what’s this all about?
Basically, my point of view is that almost everyone who sews (or wants to sew) loves fabric. It is our medium of choice, and it offers almost endless possibilities. But it can also be quite confusing, primarily because of the amount of terminology involved. That’s why I devoted a chapter of my book to it.
This talk is all about choosing the right fabric for your sewing projects. It’s based on the content in my book, so if you don’t have the book yet, it’ll be a nice little preview of that chapter. And if you do have the book, it’s a good way to review the chapter in a more interactive way. The talk will be illustrated with slides, and we’ll have a Q&A session at the end.
I’m going to talk about:
- How fabric is made (and why you should care)
- How to use your senses to better understand fabric
- How to speak the language of textiles (including a textiles primer)
- How to choose appropriate fabrics for your sewing projects
I understand that there will also be a special discount code offered at the end, for ordering the book and other fun stuff from the Martha Pullen site.
This is totally free, but registration is limited, so you may want to register now over at Martha Pullen.
ETA: I forgot to mention this in the post, but even if you can’t make the time, register anyway and you’ll have access to the recording of it!
