Subject: Rigid purse class content ??? Date: 5/22/05 2:05 AM

How many lessons does this class include? How much detail does it go into? Is this class more conceptual (concepts. options, and ideas to take further), or specific project oriented (not my preference) In other words, how much do I get for my $$? I am not familiar with your classes..but very interested... I recently published a semi-rigid purse pattern and want to learn what I did right or wrong, and what I could improve upon....

Thanks --

Hello!

I cover my invention of rigid handbag construction. I start with a materials discussion, then go into three "types" of rigid bag--the flat, the bombč, and the envelope with gusset. This class has a pattern included (to demonstrate the pattern drafting aspect) but is more conceptual. You can use it as a reference or follow the steps with the bag pattern, and make a project. I feel that information specific to a project isn't as useful as information you can adapt to ther things...

Subject: is this class for me? Date: 5/27/05 10:33 AM

Hi Kenneth!

I'm in desperate need of an everyday bag/tote with specific pockets for everything. Organized and not to big, but easy to get into. I'm not a fashion maven -- wear the same bag for days/years.

I have a feeling I missed my chance - that I should have taken your soft bags class

Am I correct or would this next class work for me? If not, are you planning to offer more classes here at PR?

Many thanks,
Nina

Hello!

You will do well to take this class--there is some overlap of information from the two bags, but you can make something like what you want, after you learn the techniques. I understand that we will be running the soft bag class again, but don't know when. So, welcome!

Subject: Best internet connection for class? Date: 6/6/05 8:18 PM

Hello,
I'm new to PR and to on-line classes. For class interaction (i can access the PDFs easily), is it better to have a high-speed connection or would a dial-up connection suffice? I've posted a few reviews to PR, but used a high-speed connection elsewhere to do this. For the 9pm chats, I would use a dial-up connection. Would this prevent me from participating in the chats?
Thanks,
lisaquilts

Hello!
I have dial up, so that will work for the chats. I don't know about downloading, but think you can also do it from dial-up but high speed is always better! Deepika will know more about how that all works....

Hi Lisa,

Most people who take these classes have dial up connection and its sufficient. Even for the chats. But while downloading lessons see if you can get connected to high speed and download them to your computer. After that you dont need it. Even if you cant get high speed you'll be ok.

Subject: Evaluating Student Samples/Work Date: 6/7/05 9:29 PM

Hello,

Thank you for your prompt reply to my previous message about internet connections.

I am definitely interested in this class and had another question about its format.

I've read reviews/summaries of other classes and learned that some instructors are willing to evaluate student samples by mail. If we sent you our finished projects (or worse, unfinished work hampered by utter frustration), would you be willing to critique them and recommend alternatives? Or might this be better accomplished by uploading digital images?

Many thanks,
lisaquilts

Actually uploading digital photos works well--and posting the photos on the message board will enable others to learn from your questions....

Subject: class supplies Date: 8/19/05 9:51 AM

I'm concerned about finding the materials to complete the project. I do not have access to much textile shopping locally. Are supplies basic or available online?

Thanks, Michelle
