Writing a Successful Sewing Blog with and Gretchen Hirsch

The online sewing world has never been more vibrant, and blogs are the heart and soul of our community. If you have aspirations to start a blog, or amp up your existing traffic, this workshop will help you meet your goals. Teacher Gretchen “Gertie” Hirsch started her blog, Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing, in 2009 and 2 years later was able to become a full-time sewing writer and teacher, brand ambassador for BurdaStyle with a book coming out in 2012 from STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books. She’ll discuss online etiquette, networking, finding your audience, getting noticed, writing valuable content, bringing in income, and tips for aspiring authors. Gretchen will share her real-life experiences--successes and foibles--on the road to becoming a successful sewing blogger. *No Sewing Machine Needed
