New Workshop Bundles! Now Available with Captions

It’s March, which means spring has sprung!

The last couple weeks have been intense to say the least. We so very much appreciate your support of our little business amidst everything that’s been going on. Our whole team is now working remotely, but we’re continuing to ship out orders regularly for folks for the time being.

Our online workshops bring Jenny into your sewing space to talk you through a variety of pattern adjustments and construction techniques. The classes are composed of multiple video lessons that you can pause and replay over and over as many times as you want. The courses can be accessed from any device, and you never lose access so you can stock up now and watch later. If you have a question, your can ask it directly in the workshop and a member of our team will get back to you with an answer.

The bundles are:

Master Fit & Pattern Hacking for Curves Bundle

This bundle pairs Fitting for Curves (our most popular course!) with the Pattern Hacking for Curves course to help you gain the knowledge and skills to adjust any pattern to fit your body, and then make it your own. We created this bundle so that you can tackle any upper body fitting challenge—from FBA to swayback—and then take those perfectly fitting garments and create infinite possibilities through pattern hacking.

The Master Fit & Pattern Hacking bundle is great for beginners and advanced beginners. Follow along with Jenny as she demonstrates flat pattern adjustments and hacks from the comfort of your own sewing space. Plus, you’ll receive a coupon code for 30% off any pattern from Cashmerette.

New! Search Captions and Transcripts

All of our workshops are now available with captions, and you can search each video’s transcript to jump to a specific step you’re looking for. This feature is easy to use and can save you a lot of time! Here’s how it works:

When you click into a particular video lesson, you’ll notice an icon in the bottom right corner with the letters CC.

Click or tap that button and a menu will open up.

Click on “English” to display closed captions.

If you want to search for a specific spot in the video, you can click either the “Search Video” option in the captions menu, or the diagonal arrow in the top right corner of the caption.

You’ll then see the full transcript pop up, with your spot of the video at the top.

Scroll to read through the transcript, or type a keyword into the search bar.

Tap on any line of text to jump to that point in the video.

To close the transcript and continue watching the video, click the “X” in the top right corner of the video.

So handy, right?!

Here’s what sewist Mary had to say after she took our Fitting for Curves course:

“This was an excellent class! So glad that I signed up. It is much easier for me to learn by watching how things are done. Thanks. This will make my pattern adjustments much easier for me to do.”

And here’s what sewist Kathleen had to say about our Shirtmaking for Curves course:

“I just have to say how much I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this whole experience—from the pattern (which fits me so well!) to the class, to making my own shirts and Harrison dress. I can’t seem to get enough of them! This has become my first true tried ‘n’ true pattern and course.”

Sending you and your families all our love from Boston during this difficult time. We wish you the best and hope you’re able to find a bit of quiet time to sew in all that’s going on.

Let me know what you think!
