Sorta Summit: The Class Schedule!

Hey Guys! Remember me talking about our idea for Sorta Summit a few weeks ago?
We've been hard at work prepping classes and gathering sponsors! We've set the dates. We've gathered teachers. We have a class schedule. Are you ready for sheer online awesomeness?!

We are running this puppy November 17 & 18, 2012. In a month, folks!
We're hosting a chat group on facebook - link will come closer to the date.
Each class will be hosted as a tutorial on the individual teacher's blog. A google hangout group will be posted at the time of the class, so up to 9 people can hop on and chat with the teacher as she goes through the individual steps on the blog. All classes except the machine feet class and photography class will be on the hangout format - those two will be set up more as lectures. You can always visit the facebook group for q&a and a chat-through of the steps during the class time if you don't have a webcam or the chat happens to be full.
Sarah and I will also be hosting open sew sessions during the machine feet and photography classes, so if you're wanting to hop on and chat and just sew with the google hangout format but aren't taking one of those classes, feel free to join us!

As for the class schedule, we have a smattering of awesomeness for you - pouches, lectures, quilt blocks, quilt techniques, apparel - you name it! A huge thanks to all our teaching volunteers!

How fun... The best part is that is the first two day of my thanksgiving break. So how is it going to work for signing up/joining the classes?

Lynne said...

Sounds like fun -- it's overnight here but I'll be following along the next day!

Leanne said...

This is an interesting concept, I am not sure I am able to join in but I will see.

I was just going to email you to tell you that I am not going to have time to teach paper-piecing, but I see I'm not on there anyways! I'm hoping to be able to chat during the open sew! Are the times EST?
