*you can live ANYWHERE in the world and be a part of the class and private group
*you attend in the comport of your own home
*if you are not able to attend when I am live, the videos will remain on the private page FOREVER…so you can watch them at your own convenience AND as many times as you would like!

We will meet three times -once in June, once in July and once in August.
Then we can continue in September because MORE  Story By Stacy kits will be coming in the new Idea book coming in the fall!
