Webinar: Raffia Hat Making For Fun Or Profit with Demo

by ©Peggy Gabrielson

I love sharing my skill with others and found that I can reach more people this way. 

I also believe that I can reach individuals who are isolated. Making it affordable was my main reason. I have spent many hours traveling and money to learn new techniques myself. This way the cost of traveling and staying in hotels, etc is avoided. Enjoy the luxury of learning a new skill to enhance our already talents in the comfort in our own home is the greater advantage!

Webinar is scheduled for 3 consecutive Saturdays, each 2 hours long. March 3, 10, and 17, 2011. All on Saturdays starting @ 3:00 pm EST and will end @ 5:00 pm. You may leave at any time you choose during the session, but I ask that you start at the time of class so time will not be spent on recapping what has already been covered. If you have a reason to start later or can not make the session, please email me so I can work something out with you if at all possible.

No software to download to participate in my webinar. A webcam is not necessary, but preferred so that I can see your work progression. You will be able to ask me questions live... in order to do so you should have a microphone hooked up to your PC before class start time, or you can always type 'chat' your questions if that is not available to you.
