Fabric On-Line Class-Free

I came across an exciting opportunity for everyone who likes to sew or create with fabric this morning and I would like to share it with you. Elizabeth (Liz) Kettle, Ruth Chandlers and two other co-authors book: Fabric Embellishing is now available, but these ladies are also offering free on-line classes, based on the techniques found in their books. They are hosting this free class at their forum  If you are interested in doing some fabric weaving, that is the first weeks lesson. Check it out!  Sounds like lots of fun and since I love to do surface designing with fabrics and thread I hope to create a fabric altered book during these weekly classes.
The first week lesson was to weave strips of fabric and here is my little sample.  The second part of the lesson was to create free-form flowers but I didn't have time to do that.  If you go to the forum and look for the Week 1 Photos, you'll see what everyone has shared.

I couldn't find the free class on her website. I would be very interested in trying some of her techniques free before I pay for a class.

Everything you need for this class is in their forum but you will need to register to be able to post any comments or photos. I've been screen printing some fabrics this morning, to use for their weaving class this week. I'm ready to go cut the fabrics now that they are dry. I hope you will have some fun with this as well!
