My secret is revealed!

Remember last month when I told you in this post that I had a secret? It included a one week trip to Denver, CO. Well, I can finally spill the beans!!

I am the newest instructor at!
I’m super excited (like you can’t tell) to tell you about my online sewing class- Sew Little: Nursery Design

Click on the image above to watch the course teaser and if you scroll down that page you can even watch a few short clips from the different lessons to give you a better idea of how it works.

I know the course is about nursery decor but the projects you’ll complete are not just for nurseries. Every project with the exception of the changing pad cover can be made for just about any room in the house.  I teach you how to make simple rod curtains, a valance, seat & back cushions for any chair and the changing pad cover.  I also cover embellishing techniques like making your own piping, several types of gathers/ruffles and an amazing pleated panel.

    Hi V:
    Congratulations on your new oneline class at Craftsy! Didn’t I tell ya . . . move over Ms.M, here comes Vanessa!

    I love Craftsy classes online. I just found the Craftsy site this month and signed up for three classes! I’m taking two classes on machine quilting and one class on stitch and slash to create my own unique fabric. The classes are awesome. I’m having so much fun learning new techniques & sewing tips. Craftsy even offers an area to post photos of our finished sewing projects. I’m going to tell all my sewing buddies about it. Glad to hear you joined their team of teachers. You are a fabulous teacher! Best wishes, Mrs. D (a.k.a. Shoestring.)
