Below is a breakdown of the sections, and a brief overview of what is covered in each of those sections. Each of the videos is between 5 and 15 minutes. These are perfect size, with enough info that the material is being covered completely, and yet there’s not a lot of fluff to fill in and make it longer than it needs to be.
Introduction – Quick video overview of what will be included in the course. It also covers how to navigate through the course, upload photos, ask questions, and get tech support if you need it.

Post Stitches – This covers everything you need to know about post stitches before adding them to your lace – working post stitches, an easy way to remember which is which, and knowing where to place them.
Working Lace – Robyn takes a lace pattern and shows how and where to add post stitches. She helps you figure out the best place to add them for the biggest visual impact.
Using Post Stitches in your Projects – Robyn compares regular stitch patterns and how they transform into something completely different when you add post stitches. I learned a lot from this section. I never knew lace could be transformed this way!

This course was not what I expected, it was better! I wasn’t sure I’d ever put post stitches in lace, but Robyn Chachula made me a believer when she took a regular lace pattern and out of it emerged a beautiful masterpiece!
