We're looking forward to another fun weekend!

(Thank you to Pam T. for allowing us to show off her gorgeous work!)


The pattern for Bonza is getting redone to include a step we call the "Bonza Fix".  While Sally didn't have a problem creating the BONZA on two different machines initially, some members that had machines with "low hanging apparatus" (that's what Sally calls it.. lol) had a problem with some of the final construction steps.

So on YouTube, you will find a video called the "BONZA FIX" - and the new Mastery Workshop, PDFs, etc will be rearranged just a tad in order to accommodate this little tweak to the construction process.

🌺. About Early Bird Sew A Long Events

These may be recorded.
These are meant to be casual & fun! 

Attire:  lol... What's "attire" mean?  🤣  All kidding aside, come comfy & come as you are!  No judgement!   That includes jammies, bathrobes, sweats, etc.  The object of the game is to have fun.  

🌺   The purpose of the Early Bird SALs

Before our world "changed", we always brought out new patterns at our physical retreats.   The retreaters would have the first crack at making the items.   The advantage of this was that Sally could verify everything was working well - and she could also see if there are certain trouble spots in the PDFs, or within the teaching outline that could use a little polishing up or perfecting - making the project easier to assemble for everyone to follow.

Unless our world gets back to normal.... 

The Early Bird Sew A Longs now take that place.   Consider it a great time to be first at making a project and all feedback and ideas that come forth and then go into play into the pattern.  All from the comfort of your own sewing room! 

🌺  The Class Handout Is Included

(example of class handout)

🌺 Important info regarding the CLASS HANDOUT - Please read:

The Class Handout contains: 
Color Cover
Materials and Tools List
Cutting Instructions 
- - - look for later --->  Assembly Outline - done after it makes it through copyright.

The class handout is designed to serve to support live instruction by a shop or through one of our events or workshops here on www.sewing.school.  It IS NOT designed, nor meant to take the place of a full pattern and tutorial PDF.   Ever.  See your live event info (obtained through #4 above) for more info pertinent to your project.

The Assembly Outline - when added to the final products - is a numbering system that will correspond accurately to all of the products for a project:  Early Bird Live Sew A Long Event, Sally Sew A Longs, Full Pattern & Tutorial PDF, Mastery Workshop, Recorded Sew A Longs, & the Sew Like A Rock Star Shop & Educator Program. 

This Class Handout is available at a low cost (about 99c) through the Sew Like A Rock Star Shop/Educator Program.   Look for your coupon code and details from your friendly participating local shop or educator.

Note:  Full Pattern & Tutorial PDFs are a separate item.   They are available for our each of projects once they have cleared filing with US Copyright.
