The Big Announcement: The First “Semester” of LIVE Online Craft Classes Is Open!

Important Update: The first semester of live classes wrapped up in early November! Second semester is in the works, and slated for enrollment in late January 2013. To get on the early bird notification list for when class registration opens, click here!

Over the last few weeks I’ve asked a lot of questions, and all of you have so graciously provided a lot of answers!

It’s suddenly become so clear how I can help all of you!

Enrollment is now open for the first semester of LIVE online craft classes from Nikki, In Stitches!

You spoke, and I listened! The first “semester” of classes is based specifically around the feedback all of you sent in.

You spoke about missing interaction with fellow crafters, needing someone to hold you accountable, wanting to learn a new medium with a pro by your side. These classes cover all of that and more!

Below you’ll find details and summaries for each class (and even a special “Hall Pass” that gives you unlimited access to the entire first semester!)

How do I know these classes are going to knock your socks off?

I practiced! I did a test run with a few craft professionals, and their response was overwhelming! They loved the class, the format, and the entire experience! Here’s a quick testimonial from one of my “students.”

Ready to see what classes are being offered in this first semester?
