This is a 6 week class by Elsie Flannigan and Leigh-Ann Keffer. We are teaching this class together. Rachel Denbow is also contributing 3 projects to this class! :)

There are also 10 style feature guest bloggers in who are featured throughout the class. They share style secrets and give interviews full of personal style tips! Some of our very favorite bloggers and designers are featured! take a look...

The class will begin January 10th and run for six weeks (the private blog stays up for one year so you can look back and take it at your own pace). There are a total of 30 projects in the class that focus on style in the following areas; Art/Craft, Wardrobe, Home Decor and Life.

There is also a Style File binder project that begins as soon as you register (it's the most fun 'homework' ever) and lasts throughout the entire class. It's full of fun assignments to help discover and develop your unique personal style!

This class is hosted on a private blog and includes downloadable PDFs for all projects that require patterns and all printable worksheets for the style file. We will host 3 live chats on the private blog as well as a live video chat with Elsie and one with Leigh-Ann!

Class fee is $60 US (equivalent to $2 per project!).

Please Note:

-When you sign up for the class you will receive login information for the private blog within 24 hours. There is already Style File Homework waiting for you there as well as a chat space for classmates to get to know each other! Plus, earlybird students receive an exclusive bonus project by pdf through email!

-This is not a kit. You will receive supply lists before the class begins. Class supplies are inexpensive, many of which you probably already own! :)

-We have a limited number of spots. We will be keeping the class small enough to communicate with each student and create a warm and personal atmosphere.

-The sample projects that you see in these blog posts and in our ads are the only photos we will be posting to the public from the class. We keep the class projects and photos exclusive!
