I am taking a class with Kenneth D. King from Craftsy.com. They have a lot of course on there to take, for 39.00 I figured it couldn't be all that bad. I'm on the 6th chapter. You can work right along with him or do what ever you wish. I prefer watching it all the way through. He is teaching us how to copy a pair of pants from you favorite pair of pants, without taking them apart. I need some silk organza. He states this is really good for copying from a garment. It makes sense since you can see straight through it, and you can write on the other side of it as well. I need some color pencils. He states they are always good for marking. Especially if you are working out details on the same side of the fabric. I guess you don't get confused. Pretty interesting so far.
I have two more DVDs coming from London, and these are about dressmaking from scratch. Seeing is really helpful in that I can retain what I see in addition to using my reference books. Guess I am just killing time, but at least I am spending it constructively. Still tinkering around with machine. It's almost time for me to take her in for a check up, and I think I will do that around spring. I should also have the embroidery machine checked out as well. Never need to with the Brother. I purchased and ebook from Kennth King through threads, but didn't really care for it, I like this better because it is filmed, and I can start and stop whenever I wish.
