      Where Can I Find My Classes?

      To find the class material, videos, notes or anything else you may need for a class you purchased you need to go to the “Class Page” and be authorized to view the page. To find your class page you can follow the steps below.

      Desktop Instructions

      First off you want to go to our website. On any of our pages at the top you can see a few links which will lead you to various locations related to your own account. To find your class pages lets click on the My Account button outlined in red.

      This will take you to the login screen for your account if you are not signed in and your account dashboard if you are signed in. If you have not signed in do it now in the outlined fields. If you do not have an online account with us, you can create one using the register area. This will not automatically authorize you for your classes so send an email to asking to have your classes authorized to your account and we will take it from there.

      After you have signed in you will be taken to the My Account dashboard. While in your dashboard you can see a section to the left detailing the classes you are currently authorized for doubling as a handy button you can press to take you to the class page. Click one of the buttons and you will be redirected to the class page you clicked on.

      after clicking the link you have arrived at the class page and can browse for whatever you need. Below you can see and example of the same page but in one case the user has signed in and is authorized to view the class and the other is not signed in or is not authorized.

      Previous users of our site may notice that there was no page asking for a password or to sign in to view the page itself. This is correct, you will no longer need a password for each class or class page. You only need to login to your account and your account itself is what authorizes you to view the class content. Our hope is that this will simplify finding your classes, no longer require you to keep email for classes you have purchased, and assist with making the whole process less difficult.

      Signed in and authorized↓

      Not Signed in or not authorized

      Mobile Instructions

      If you are viewing on a phone tablet or smaller device you may have a different view of the website. The steps are the same but this should be what the steps would look like on a smaller screen

      This is the homepage view on a mobile screen. To go to the My Account Dashboard you can either click the person icon (outlined in Blue) OR open the menu (outlined in red) and click My Account

      ↓Access My Account through person icon↓

      ↓Access My Account through menu↓

      ↓Then clicking My Account↓

      Either way will take you to the login screen if you are not signed in or the dashboard if you are signed in

      After signing in you can see the dashboard like this. There you can see Your Classes above your account links. click one of the class buttons and you will be taken to the class page

      This is an example of what the class page would look like if you are signed in and authorized vs not signed in or not authorized

      ↓Signed in and authorized↓

      ↓Not signed in or authorized↓

      if you have any feedback about this method of accessing your classes please reach out to and let us know what you like or don’t like about it. Thanks

      Tamara Evans

      Tamara has been sewing for as long as she can remember and loves every aspect of it – except handwork. Her “professional” sewing experience began in Jr. High sewing costumes, home décor and clothing for family and neighbors. Her sewing experience includes machine embroidery, digitizing, quilting, garment design, home decor, and crafts. After working in a variety of corporate and entrepreneurial ventures, she returned to her real passion – sewing.

      Within a year of purchasing her first embroidery machine, Tamara had invested in a multi-needle machine, digitizing software and launched a successful embroidery and gift business. Back in her home state of Texas, she began coordinating the development of new products, educational tools, magazine articles and a video education series for embroidery and quilting. She then hit the road as a national educator teaching embroidery software and stabilizing techniques at national shows, in-store events and to dealers.  Behind the scenes, she also created new embroidery and quilting projects, collaborated on software development and created software education materials.

      Tamara has long a fan of the designs, products and digitizing expertise that is exemplified by OESD since she began to embroider.  And so, she is very excited to put her enthusiasm, energy and expertise into bringing these exceptional products directly to the sewing public at the OESD Super SPREE events.

        AIRFLOW 3000

        Excellent for challenging fabrics such as fine knits and stretchy materials, the AIRFLOW 3000 Air Serger can achieve outstanding finishing touches with flatlock, overlock, and rolled hem stitches on most specialty fabrics. The modernistic AIRFLOW 3000 can cut and finish seams all in one pass. It’s a breath of fresh air to change threads as the AIRFLOW 3000 threading ports are connected to the end of each looper by tubes, and at the touch of a button, a blast of air sends the threads through the loopers, so it’s a cinch to change thread colors.
