Free On-Line Dress Shop Classes
We have a Dress Shop class room set up to help
you through the learning curve, and it is FREE!
Your instructor is Kaaren Hoback, a long time user
and educator for all the Dress Shop programs. She is the designer of
both Hat Shop and Illusions and generally coordinates the extensive Beta
testing program on LivingSoft products.
There are classes available to learn what’s new
with Dress Shop, how to measure, how the patterns draft, what is ease
and how it is applied, how to select a silhouette, how to adjust the fit
from “default” to exactly what you desire and much more.
First even though this is a “chat room” it is a
very secure real class room. We even have a white board so Kaaren can draw
(roughly) a graphic aid. ALL questions on Dress Shop are welcome.
The current schedule for chat classes is as
follows: All Times Pacific US
Tuesday 11:30AM, Wednesday 8PM, Thursday
10AM,Saturday 8PM and Sunday 1PM
Starting the first of the year we are
reserving the Wednesday and Thursday sessions for “newbies” going over a
basic series of 10 classes on a repeating basis. All are welcome to join
ALL class sessions.
To find out how to get there and set up your
password just go to:
Print out the instructions and once you have
logged in (at any time) bookmark the site to your favorites so you can
enter the room quickly.
Internet Explorer and Java are required.
Email Kaaren directly if you need assistance at Patrns4u@aol.com.
Users Helping Users
LivingSoft’s users are a special group,
sharing common interests. Some of the resources available are the
Discussion Boards, User Groups and Educators.
Discussion Boards – LivingSoft has a
discussion board that is of tremendous value to the new user. Newbie
and expert alike come to this forum to discuss designs, talk about new
features and especially to answer questions. There are also user run
discussion boards for Hat Shop and Doll Shop.
User Groups – Across the US,
Australia and Canada are groups of LivingSoft users that get together
and help each other maximize their enjoyment. Try looking for one in
your area and contact that User Group about when the next meeting is.
These groups are a really great way to learn the details of designing
and sewing with Dress Shop.
Educators – LivingSoft has a very special
group of users that have the skills that we all need. Our Authorized
Educators can help you with getting that perfect set of measurements or
are putting on Work Shops to help teach all of us the finer points of
using Dress Shop
The LivingSoft web site has a central
place where there are links to all of these user resources. Check us
