Hello everyone, This month’s Software Club will be meeting via Zoom on Sunday, October 18 from 9:30 to 11:30 am and again on Friday, October 23 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm since last weekend was a holiday weekend.
As time moves on, Halloween is coming up fast. While we can’t go out and celebrate, we can decorate our homes to keep up spirits (pun intended). This month we will take simple clipart and create larger designs that can be used in tandem to make wall hangings or buntings. The designs can be made as an appliqué with buttonholes added to string them together, or they can be stitched as a single layer on washaway stabilizer for a stained glass look.
|In order to get the most out of the Zoom session, we found that having two devices was a benefit. You can use your laptop to do the lesson with me and then have the Zoom meeting on a tablet or even smart phone to see what I'm doing on my screen. If you don't have two devices, you can use two windows on the one screen, but it did take some finagling to get it working properly. We found it useful that the device with your zoom session has voice capability.
If you have stitched out any previous sessions’ design(s) please have it (them) close at hand as well, or any show and tell. We all like to see what you have been doing.
If you plan to join me for this month’s Software Club, please sign up online at our website www.sew-jos.ca/classes.htm so that I can forward you the instructions and handouts beforehand as well as provide the Zoom information. If you haven't prepaid for the year, the fee is $12. If you have prepaid and attending, the same coupon code as last year will work. Let me know if you can't find the appropriate coupon code or if you have any issues.
Hope to see you online. It will be nice to see everyone's faces again. If you can't make it on these dates, I will record the session for later viewing. Let me know and I will give you the link.
PS: I have now added recorded zoom sessions of the previous software clubs to our website for purchase. If you missed one of the sessions and aren't on the annual plan, you can download online. Just search for recording on the website.
