    Hi Vanessa,

    I’m subscribed to your website and haven’t received any emails for a while. Have you not published anything/tutorials etc.? I really look forward to them and have made several of your projects.

    Thanx,
    Stephanie

      Hi again,

      I haven’t received a reply to my email that I sent on July 21, 2016. I haven’t received any of your fun tutorials for a very long time. Are you not doing them any more?

    Hi,

    If we join the Bag of the Month Club are we able to view the tutorials anytime after they are released? For example, we can go back and watch tutorials multiple times. Or is it a one-time access to the video when it is released and we no longer have access to any videos or downloadable patterns once membership expires on 12/31/16?

    Thanks,

    Erica

      Yes. You will have access to the content indefinitely. It’s not going to end in December. There just won’t be any more bags added to this group. You are signing up for 5 bags and you can access them whenever, forever.

    Hi Vanessa,
    I signed up with my PayPal account to take your “Bag of the Month” (5) course today.
    I was wondering when it will begin and how do I find it here on your site? I won’t be able to start it until 8/8/16 and just wanted to be ready for it when it is ready for up.
    If I am correct, I can replay instructions as often as I would want to.

    I have viewed some of your videos on you tube, but was not aware of classes and such until I got the email about the “Bag of the Month” course.

    Thank you,
    Julie OLeary

My system shows you unsubscribed yourself from one of my past emails so it unsubscribes you from ALL my emails. I fixed that for you and have just sent out that email. All the info for you to logon and access the course materials is in there. You should see it in your inbox shortly. Thanks!

    Hey there Vanessa! I was wondering about the Staci purse kits – if we didn’t pre-order one, are we out of luck at this point? I’ve tried to order twice on your site and I’m getting a strange message that says “try again in 10800 minutes” which actually made me crack up! (I almost busted out my calculator!) I will be on the lookout for the next kit but just wanted to check to figure out what’s going on with the Staci kit. Thanks!

Also how long is this registration for and will we register for each set of bags that you create? You do good explanations, and produce good products.

    Vanessa,

    That Staci purse was a bear and I am very experienced. The zipper opening was not big enough to turn the bag and the handles are too big and too stiff. I had to unstitch one side of my zipper to get the bag turned and now I will hand stitch it back in place.

    If this is the easiest one….oh my.

    Hi, I joined last night for the bag of the month club, as a gift for my birthday. I was so excited but, when we tried to print off pattern it would only print half size, instead of taking up the full page it only takes up one side and so the pattern is really small. We worked on it for over 3 hours, the instructions printed perfectly, but not the pattern. Now today is my birthday and my husband is mad at me for signing up and I’m really upset. I really want to take these classes, now I don’t know what to do. Please help.

    I’m having difficulty getting to the video class–bag of the month. Evidently I’m doing something wrong as I was able to get to the course once but have been unable since then. There are 2 different places to sign in and I’ve tried both. One says my course has been completed but I just started the course, plus the class presently has unlimited access–to the best I understand. Please send me directions on how to once again access this course. Anne

    Hi Vanessa,
    I just bought an iPad Pro 9.7 to take on vacation with me in December. I can’t seem to get into the bag of the month club that I belong to to watch the videos on. I also want to use the iPad upstairs in my sewing room because it is easier than taking my computer upstairs. Looking forward to September’s bag. Can you please tell me exactly what to type and how to get to my lessons. When I hit my classes here on the iPad it tells me I have none. How can I get back to Staci Bag if I want to make another one and how to get to the next one when it is ready?
    Thank you so much for your patience, as I am very computer challenged at times.

    Vanessa, I have cried my heart out at the finish line for the Stacy Purse, for, after making beautiful outside and inside, my machine cannot sew them together. Stitching over the handles plus foam lining of the sides just cannot be done on my Brother machine. It did well with the parts, but stitching is basically not possible for the finish, as well as maneuvering the stiff combination around on the machine.

    I do not know what kind of machine this project is intended for, but unless I am mistaken with the directions on making this Purse, I have purchased this sewing club in error. I am a Senior Citizen, excited with having something fun to pursue, but totally hurt.

    I think I am showing my age. I have signed up for your Bag of the Month class. I managed to make the first month’s bag. Since then, time runs a pace and I have had no time to work on the other bags. So my question is, if I delete the email that you send each month. How do I access the videos for making the bag. I can get to the videos with the email, but can’t figure out how to find them after I delete the email. I must be missing something. Can you help? Stephanie B.

    HI, First of all, I want to say how refreshing it is to have someone explain things to beginners. You do it and I understand it-thanks so much. I did purchase an embroidery machine with my machine, a year ago, but still haven’t used it (except for the workshop to introduce you to it). I think I just might start using it now and follow you. I thought I would like to take a workshop but most of the people who attend know so much and thought I would be “out of place” You do such a great job. Thank you, thank you. I tried to email you since I had a question regarding using your site and downloads. I wanted to know if I could use your designs with my Apple computer. I was told I had to get a different program to use the Apple for my designs-Is that true? I have a Bernina. Thanks you soooooo much. Anna

So I don’t understand why I can’t access what I paid for. I followed all your specific instructions. Is there a reason it’s not processed? This is very frustrating. I was looking forward to learning how to use my Embroidery machine.

      Hi Abby. Thanks for your interest in my bag club! Yes. You can do the quilting of the fabric panels with just a sewing machine. The embroidery designs are just optional to give some students an idea of what else they can do to the bags if they have an embroidery machine but all that is required is a sewing machine in good working condition that can sew through several layers of fabric. Hope that helps.
