As we officially close 2013 and open up 2014, first, I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year. 2013 has gone way too fast, but it's been a great year.
Second, I'd like to request your suggestions. You all know that we post lots of complimentary, tutorial-type of videos to help you with your fitting, designing and sewing success. To date, Sure-Fit Designs now has over 120 instructional 'helps' up on You Tube. We intend to keep that number growing throughout 2014.
During the past 3 months, we've knocked off a number of them that were on my 'Video To-Do List', so now I need your help and suggestions. Usually, the tutorials stem from suggestions and requests you ask for, issues I see happening with our customers as they are drawing off their patterns and some of the topics come from what I see occurring in my fitting retreats. When I see something happen more than 2 or 3 times, I figure there might be a few others out there that are experiencing the same issue.
What would you like to see explained or addressed in new videos? Please take a few minutes to leave a comment on this blog page. When you're commenting, please be specific. Remember, I attempt to focus on only one single topic at a time and something that can be dealt with in no more than about 10 minutes of video time. And...if you can't get the Comment Box on this blog page to work properly, simply drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And before I close this very short, end-of-the-year blog, I must give credit to my ever-resourceful and creative husband (Wes), who, as many of you know is our videographer.
We've graduated from our humble beginnings of a friend's borrowed camera, to top-of-the-line movie production video cam and cameras, equipment, and complex editing software. Everything now is shot in HD (and uploaded to YouTube in HD too), so that you receive the best clarity possible.
It's been a creative learning experience for both of us...we've loved the challenge...and there's more to come.
I really do want your input, so take a few minutes to offer your video topic suggestions. And don't be afraid to offer more than one suggestion - I will appreciate and evaluate all of them.
Thank you all for a great 2013! We wish you all the best in the coming year and may you have many hours of rewarding sewing.
Happy New Year,
