Thanks for all of your support

YEAH! I'm going back to in-person teaching read about it here!

I am doubly pleased to announce that I will be having in-person PE-Design/Palette classes in two locations starting this Jan 1st 2022 at the
Allbrands Houston location
in Webster. You can go to their website to get more information on dates and times. Here is a link 
to their website

I will also be continue teaching at It Seams To Be Sew in Sugar Land. Here is a link to their website
There are hands-on classes so you will need to bring your laptop with the software loaded and working. Also whatever dongle you use. Everyone who wants to attend must be fully vaccinated, Masks are required and class sizes will be small (max 6) so sign up early! I will be teaching using PE-Design 11 but can also run PE-Design 10 at the same time to show if it is different.
The first class in the series Work Smarter not Harder is a requirement for the other classes.Even if you have been using PE-Design for a while. You will be amazed at what you will learn.
I hope I get to see some of you there
