Featured Sewing Tutorial 

3 Ring Binder Cover

Hey y'all and Happy Friday! In our house we are officially counting down the days until school starts...only 17 left. Hooray! 

This year I will be surprising the children with new 3 ring binder covers. I love making these because they come together very quickly and can be customized with pockets in various sizes to meet their needs perfectly. 

On August 25th, I will be publishing an updated version of this pattern on the Sewspire YouTube Channel, as shown in the photo above. The new style makes a lovely gift for the teacher as it is designed to hold a 1" three ring binder or large planner, 3 file folders, several pens and a small notepad. For that matter, mom might like one too! 

The week prior, we'll be making a Lifestyle Tote Bag that is unlike anything else I have designed as it was inspired by a new venture Ashley & I have embarked on. If you are passionate about wellness and enjoy essential oils you will want to take a look at this unique opportunity and give some consideration to becoming a part of the dynamic network we are building. 

Speaking of Ashley, I am happy to report she is enjoying her new job and having fun discovering the greater Columbia, South Carolina area. Next time we visit her, we are planning to organize a Sewspire get together with our southern friends. Who is in?

In the meantime, I have lots to keep me busy and am currently mind mapping out my plans for the fourth quarter.

As mentioned last week, registration for the second AMC (Andrea's Master Class) 8 Week Workshop will open September 10th at noon. I have added a second time slot and 9 more seats to accommodate the interest expressed by our community in recent weeks. In total there will be 18 seats available. Nine on Monday at 7 p.m. EST and nine on Wednesday at 9 a.m. EST. In a nutshell, this is an 8 week design workshop delivered in a series of 8 instructional videos and 8 weekly group chats. The curriculum is designed to inspire your inner designer and demonstrate the method in which I design bags and accessories. In the coming weeks I will have more information regarding the curriculum as well as feedback from our current group to share with you. To date, the experience has exceeded all my expectations and it has been an absolute joy to work with this small group of women whom have renewed my spirit and inspired me beyond measure.

While I am in "planning mode" please do let me know if there is anything you feel is missing from the Sewspire platform and I will take that into consideration.

Until we meet again, the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you.
