Unlimited Access to Netting Classes

I’ve been thinking about it for a long time.  I’ll admit, when I started out, I was following the crowd, something I’ve told my kids to be careful about doing.  In the online craft classes I saw and took, the videos  all had a limited time that they were available.   So, even though a part of me said, “Give your students unlimited access to the classes they purchase,”  I was listening to the part that said, “Look at all the others who are successful and giving limited access to their material.”

Well, recently I signed up for an online knitting class.  The only reason I did was that I was given unlimited access to the videos and other class materials, forever.  I really did not have the time to do the class all at once right now, but I have squeezed in 20 minutes here or 30 minutes there and gradually I am working through the class on my time.  I’m learning the material and, if I happen to forget something in a year or more, I can still go back and review what was taught.

I’ve always maintained that the best way to get my husband to understand a problem I’m having with something around the house, is to get him to do the same task, using the same equipment I do.  It’s amazing that once we have both experienced the same problem we can come up with a solution.  I guess the same thing applied here.  I had to take both kinds of classes and feel the pressure, or lack of it, to begin to listen to the voice that was telling me, “Give your students unlimited access to the classes they purchase.”

So, starting right now, once you purchase a class from me, you will have unlimited access to the class — no expiration dates!


Registration for Netting Class is Open

It’s Wednesday instead of Tuesday, but you can now sign-up to take Net Like a Lacemaker.  The actual class will start on January 3, 2011, so you have time to get the supplies you need.  It feels strange to have this beginning netting class to this point after working on it for more than a year.

This first time the class size will be kept small.  I want to be able to correct any problems and make sure the videos cover all the information needed for those taking the class.

Sign-up for the class.

The Next Step Is …

As you can see from the syllabus, I have finally completed all the videos and PFD files.

Now I need to start a new learning curve – setting up the class with PayPal so you can sign up.

I’m told it is easy.  I hope the signup process will be ready by tomorrow.
