Going online with my Project

I've been wondering for a long time whether to put my classes online. I've taught most of them more than a few times which has allowed me to get some wonderful feedback from my students which in turn has allowed for some improvements to the class and teaching materials.

After posting the question to the A&S 50 group discussion list and receiving a positive response I have finally made the decision to start posting my classes to my blog.

All of my classes come with lots of diagrams. I start them out with a brief discussion on the piece, then give you a listing of measurements to take (usually no more than 6 to 8 per item), along with how to figure out the amount of fabric needed per item. I also include layout diagrams and step by step illustrations on how to construct each item. In this case since I am posting to blogs I will also include some photos to go along with the diagrams, so I will probably end up posting each class as multiple blog posts. Hope this won't be too much of an inconvenience, but I am hoping the photos will help to enhance what the illustrations are trying to impart.
