Reminder : another Instagram Live from Janome Canada today on zippers. Today at 10am Pacific/ 11am Mountain/ 1pm Eastern, Liz will show how to make a zipper pouch using the zipper tab method.
Also about zippers:
Remember the popular online video tutorials called Craftsy? It changed its name to Bluprint + the way in which it offered tutorials quite some time back. It is a subscription based website but the good news is that you can currently watch any and all online classes/tutorials until 16th April 2020.
If you have been following along with our Instagram Lives this week, you will know we have been talking about 4 different ways to banish the zippers. We thought, in addition to the input we have been offering all week on Instagram (as well as here on Janome Life of course!), that you might like to also watch this BluPrint Tutorial called Mastering Zippers by Callie Works-Leary. This tutorial contains 3 short videos covering how to sew a centered, a lapped and an invisible zipper using a Janome sewing machine!
Check it out. Remember, it is only free to watch until 16th April! So if you try to watch after this date, you may have to sign up with Bluprint and pay a subscription fee to have access to the tutorial. So don’t “dilly dally”! It’s not long – 16 minutes total.
Of course, you can also watch our Instagram Live video’s on the subject – visit our Janome Life You Tube channel – we should have the video’s processed and posted by early next week – just in case you missed the Instagram Live’s this week.
Are you afraid of inserting a zipper into a garment or bag?
Are you feeling a little less zipper fear now? And there are still another 2 Janome Canada Instagram lives on Zippers: today (zipper tab method) and tomorrow (fully lined zipper pouch with crisp corners).
Let us know in the comment box below if this week’s focus on zippers was useful to banish zipper phobia?
