    Hello – I am a little late in starting this seminar. I can’t find the link that takes me to where the videos are available, and where to download the pattern? It is not in my library. Thanks!

    I checked Pattern Library and it’s not there for me either.

    Also, would this pattern work for a horizontal strip or would the shoulder dart throw it off?

    I have the same question as “dianebevis” below. What if I won’t be able to finish the jacket during the webinar- will the videos be accessible after the end of the sew-along?

    Also purchased the webinar and can’t find the pattern — I can’t get access to the Blackboard either. (I know the class won’t be posted until the start date, but shouldn’t we be able to log in?)

      Did you look at your account under Pattern Library to see if the pattern is there? Since you purchased the webinar, that is where I believe you’ll see the pattern listing, which you will have to print off.
