I am so excited!! Charter Memberships to my VIP discussion boards for all levels of home sewers and those wanting to go Pro are available now!
I’m a professionally trained Costume Designer with a degree in Fashion Design. I worked in Film/TV and Theater, plus did some commercial work from 2005-2015. (You can check out some of my credits at imdb.com:Jennifer Dryden). I’m home with my four year old now, AND I have autoimmune arthritis so I doubt I will get to go back to working on film sets…15 hours days can be really physical!
I love to sew and design and make patterns and drape! I have a passion for it and it is my vocation to create using fabric. And now I want to teach others and share my passion! What’s better than using the online community to share knowledge and skills? Since I was an Instructional Designer before getting my Fashion degree, I’m now taking all those skills and melding them into a new business. This is just the beginning. Coming soon I’ll be offering self-paced email based courses on sewing, and also paid courses. But first up, I’ve created a community to learn about sewing that is OFF Facebook!
Two Levels of Access:
Special Charter Membership VIP pricing for a limited time only: Get 12 months of access for the cost of 10 months!
Two levels of access based on your needs and goals:
Costume/Cosplay and Home Sewers: $50 for 12 months of access, normally $60. You get TWO months free. Annual renewals get a $5 discount if left on automatic renewal. (12 months for cost of 11.) This is what it means when it says $55 every 12 months for 2 more payments (years). But I will probably extend discounts ongoing as long as Charter Members keep their account on auto renew.
Costumers/Sewers wanting to pursue a Professional path to Film/TV or who are already there working their way up the ladder: $60 for 12 months of access, normally $72. You get two months free. Annual renewal with a $6 discount if left on automatic (12 months for cost of 11.)
I also offer a non-discounted auto billed recurring monthly membership as well for a very low cost. You can use this option to become a Charter Member until December 31, 2017 and receive all the charter benefits.
You may cancel or change plans anytime starting in January 2018 but you will lose Charter prices and benefits. Choose wisely!!!
