ModSew:: Malka Dubrawsky’s Creative Live class Oct. 8 & 9

Screen Shot 2014-10-01 at 9.32.00 AM

See that lady up there… well that is the uber talented Malka Dubrawsky from A Stitch in Dye. I think she inspires me beyond words with her use of color and how she take improv to a whole new level of awesomeness. I mean she just has a style that makes you smile but it also invites you in to learn more. I know every time I visit her website I am always wanting to know more. Well good news for you all because she will have a Creative Live class on Oct. 8 & 9th called 10 ways to Love Improvisational Quilting that is free while it is aired live. Or you can can purchase the class to watch whenever you want. Cool huh?

So what is Creative Live you ask? It is an education site that offers free online classes in craft, photography, design, music, and business. All of their classes are free when aired live so anyone, anywhere in the world can tune in and watch. People can purchase classes for anytime access.

So you can RSVP to the class which is always good because then you will be reminded of it as it nears which is always good for me. I need reminders just sayin’! Go RSVP to Malka’s class 10 Ways to Love Improvisational Quilting because I know you will love it and Malka! Heck you might even find more Creative Live classes that you want to take as well!
