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 Saturday June 26th at the
Sparkly Elephant Sewing Lounge
in Friendswood. (the name makes me smile!) 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 teaching at It Seams To Be Sew in Sugarland starting in July. Here is a link to their website
There are some hands-on classes so for those 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 and class sizes will be small 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.
I hope I get to see some of you there
