Our Online Photoshop Class starts March 5!


Are you interested in learning Adobe Photoshop Elements but don’t know where to start? Why don’t you start here with us? Our online class, Introduction to Adobe Photoshop Elements (PSE) for Fiber Artists and Sewing Enthusiasts, begins this coming Monday, March 5. Cost for the 3-week class is $60. To register for the class, go to www.steponpins.com. Why would you take our class over another one?

  • We know our students – they are sewers and artists who learn visually.
  • We know your language and can explain PSE concepts so you will understand them.
  • We have videos and handouts to provide you with various ways to learn PSE.
  • We offer three live meetings during the class so that you can ask about concepts you want to see demonstrated.
  • We have ongoing class discussions to answer questions while you learn.
  • We work with “paper” dolls, making learning the concepts easy and fun!
  • Click here for a full description of the course.

It’s Plain Jane!

Have you already taken the class?

  • Students who were enrolled in a previous class can enroll in this class for a 50% discount!
  • We have new videos and handouts!
  • We have new paper dolls made exclusively for us by our StepOnPins hostess, Carla Barrett!

Hope to “see” you in class on Monday!

Book Giveaway!


C&T, our wonderful publisher, is giving away a copy of our new book! Follow this link for more details. The giveaway runs through February 26. Everyone’s support of our book is just the bee’s knees! By the way, we love going to consignment shops and thrift stores in search of vintage scarves to use as furoshiki. Keep the scarves out of the landfills, we say!

The Book is Here – Party on March 24!


We drove down to Concord, home of C&T Publishing, this past Tuesday and picked up a few copies of our book, Furoshiki Fabric Wraps. Let’s say we were pretty excited when we sold our very fist copy to Wanda of the Piecemakers Guild in Newark. We are giving free wrapping demos at Shared Stitches in Shingle Springs during their March Madness event on March 24, and the book will be available for purchase. If you live too far away, just give us a call, and we’ll be happy to sell you a copy. You can also find the book in the usual places. Hope to see many of you on March 24!
