Will the courses be available simultaneously? Or will we have to wait until after one course is finished before accessing another? A new course is made available each month which you'll see each time you log in. When a new course becomes available the previous courses will remain indefinitely for you to revisit as often as you want as long as your membership remains active.
Are the courses self-paced? Yes. Start and stop whenever you want with filmed content. Once access has been established, how long are courses available?

If I end my membership, will I still have access to courses released when I was an active member, but not access to new courses? Once you end your membership, you no longer have access to Couture Academy courses. Like a gym membership, you're paying for a membership not for a class.
What about patterns? Are there any tools, resources needed to start? You'll need a sewing machine, although sometimes the project will be sewn entirely by hand (hats for example). You'll need buy patterns on your own. I will focus on affordable patterns available online worldwide.
Why are you following a monthly subscription model? I rather just pay for one course. I thought about offering one-time payment for each course, but the monthly payment model gives you a lot more bang for your buck. At least one new course a month. So that's at least 12 projects for the cost of one. It's a great value and gives you an opportunity to master a variety of techniques.
Will I pay a monthly fee forever or just until the courses I want are completed? It’s an automated recurring payment. You will be charged until you cancel your membership. There will be at least one new course every month.
Can I find similar courses for free online? What’s the difference? There online sewing courses, what makes Couture Academy unique is the focus on techniques you can apply to a variety of patterns and projects.
Who's teaching? I am. I've a background teaching at Vogue Fabrics, the Midwest's premiere resource and I've taken courses at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
I started Couture Academy as a way to share my passion for sewing projects and specific details on garments. I also wanted to share specific ways I've customize garments and accessories that I've sewn.
