This Thursday, learn the art of sewing a perfect collar and stand. You will learn things that are not written in any books or pattern guide sheets, so don’t miss out!

We’re thrilled for this week’s web seminar with Linda Lee! You might have seen her on HGTV, or recognize her work from Threads, Sew News, and Stitch magazines, and this Thursday, she’ll be presenting How to Sew Collars and Stands LIVE at 11am EST | 4pm GMT.

Sewing a professional-looking collar can often be difficult. Since this part of a garment is near your face, you want it to be perfect. It’s also the tell-tale detail that can often scream “homemade!” This web seminar will teach you how to take your collars from “did you make that?” to “Wow! I can’t believe you made that!”

In the web seminar, Linda will break down the steps of successfully installing professional-looking collars and stands via 2 methods: the classic method and also an easier, more modern way! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best!

    Is there any way to get access to this webinar… even though it’s long over? Any historical place one can get a link?

    I registered to receive the link to download this seminar but never received the link. I did the registration with my mastercard on 8 December and it was processed on 10 December. Please advise when the link will be emailed to me.
