Farthingales is now on CraftsyCraftsy is the fastest growing crafty community on the web with over 5 million members in over 200 countries but so many people I meet, have never heard of this group. If you follow this blog or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram you'll soon hear about Craftsy because Linda Sparks, owner of Farthingales Corset Makings Supplies and the author of The Basics of Corset Building has taped a Corset Making Class with Craftsy.
You can take a Craftsy on-line class and watch it whenever and wherever you want and your access to the class never expires! You can even take "virtual notes" while watching the videos and post questions to the instructor. So, if you've ever wanted to take a corset making class but couldn't get to one, you can now.
The title of this Craftsy corset class is "Custom Corsets - Bones, Casings and Busks". It was developed with the "newbie" corset maker in mind; someone who has made a corset but wants to expand their skills. Linda demonstrates various techniques such as how to make "invisible bone casings" and an "invisible busk", but that's not all...she also demonstrates several bone casing techniques that make bone casings into design details and she demonstrates how to cut and tip bones easily.
The class is due to launch in early August 2016...that's pretty soon! and you have a chance to win a free class just by clicking this link to Craftsy.

- Pipe your seams and use invisible bone casings at the same time
