Makeup is completely optional, PixieVal, but everyone should remember to get a complete manicure prior to coming to class.  Your nails should be a minimum of 1/2" past the tip of your finger, and while nail is entirely optional, stick-on jewels are completely mandatory.  We want to be sparkly and pretty as we do our coding at the computers.  Thanks for reminding me, always!  Your lovely nails will fit right in.

Of course, actual formal wear is entirely optional as well, but you should probably err towards cocktail attire.  Always, perhaps the skirt you're making in your class will be appropriate?

Can you please give me the link to the makeup tutorial?

Will my machine be able to spell words afterwards?

Val, that tutorial is : HERE.

And if you stay for our additional embroidery machine-add-on segment, your machine will absolutely be able to spell words!  However, you will be limited to the Segoe Script font, Kanji, and classic Arabic.  We've determined that these are the most used fonts in machine embroidery, so we won't be wasting our time with the others.

Absolutely, Mare!  However, just in case, you may want to provide your own gerbil with something for him (or her) to NOM, just to make sure it's playing the video accurately.

I like you, so yes.  Small guinea pigs would also be acceptable, as long as they are sufficiently cute.

No worries, Val!  All of the furry critters will be kept in the computer lab and away from the metal shop.  Maybe we can get the folks over in HSH to make them some little furry critter homes, all decorated in Craftster style!  No animals will be harmed in the making of your sewing machines.  All humans, however, will be required to sign a waiver.

...and will absolutely be hurt, possibly fatally.  Cheesy
