hi there! just a quick note to let those of you interested know that i’ll be teaching two classes at clementine in rockland, maine, this upcoming saturday: sewing with knits at 10:30 am and zippered pouches at 2 pm. if you’re interested in signing up, just send me an email. all you need to bring is your sewing machine and a cheery disposition. and you can even skip the cheerfulness. but bring cookies instead then.
i also thought it was about time that i share some other news: i’ll be teaching at fiber college in searsport, maine this september! for those of you not in the know, fiber college is a fiber-centric (obviously) retreat at a gorgeous campground on the coast of maine. you can read all about it (and sign up) on their site. i’ll be teaching getting to know your sewing machine on friday september 11th from 9-1. this class will include some additional material and goodies, as i get four whole hours! and i’m teaching a brand new offering, wordpress blogging for artists! this class is scheduled for sunday july 13th from 11:30-4:30. here’s a description:
have you been hoping to start your own blog, to share your creations and inspiration with the world? in wordpress blogging for artists, holly will walk you through each step of creating your blog, from choosing a blog name and a theme, to navigating wordpress behind the scenes. you’ll learn how to create a blog post, add images and videos, and connect to your other social media outlets. at the end of this course, you will have a new blog and your first blog post!
basic computer skills, a laptop or computer, an email address, and a digital camera or a camera phone are all that is required to get the most from this course. if you’ve considered blogging as another creative outlet, to network with other artists, or to supplement your marketing efforts for your creative business, then this class will be the first step on a successful blogging journey!
i’m super-psyched to be attending fiber college, instructor or not; this will be my first time, and i’m already getting nervous butterflies in my tummy. i’m really excited to offer this new wordpress class, and i have a ton of really useful information ready to share!
i hope i’ll see you there!
