I plan on hosting three qaspeq zoom classes.
The zoom classes will be over three different weekends. The three weekends are:
The first two zoom classes will be traditional qaspeq classes. And the third class will be a modern qaspeq class. There will be three sessions over the weekend. There will be two (2) hour sessions on Saturday, and one (2) hour session on Sunday.
Students will need to provide their own material, and sewing machine.
The fee to participate in the class with $75 per person. And there will be at 15 person maximum capacity.
I will create three different events on Facebook for these events. If you do not have Facebook you can send me a message to email@example.com if you are interested in participating.
I wanted to create this post to prepare those of you who are interested in attending. Please do not ask me to remind you, or to message you when I post the events. I work full time, work part time, have two little ones at home, and my mom brain is in full force. I forget when I showered last so I am not a good person to ask to remind anyone. Sorry for the TMI but I want to be honest.
Materials needed for a traditional qaspeq:
3 yards for sizes XXS-XL with no skirt
3 1/2 yards for sizes XL and up with no skirt
Add 1/2 yard if you would like a skirt
2-3 packages of bias tape, trimming of your choice
I personally like using the extra wide double fold bias tape, and piping
Materials needed for a modern qaspeq:
2 yards for sizes XXS-XL
2 1/2 yards for sizes XL and up
1 yard of rayon knit spandex
Here is what I like using from Joanns Rayon Knit Spandex
Please let me know if you have any questions. Please keep an eye out for those events created on Facebook and it will have all the information on how to register for the classes.
Quyana Chuck Norris!

So very much looking forward to this class! Thank you for doing it!
Quyana! I will start making the events here shortly and I will share the links here on my website.
Please make sure you send me a message on my Sew Yup’ik facebook page.
I would like to sign up for the modern and the traditional classes. How do I pay?
Quyana I am so excited will go buy my material soon. What is the best kuspuk material? So many to choose from.
Would love to sign up for the modern one as well.
I like to use 100% cotton. And then for the modern qaspeq class I use the cotton, and then either knit rayon spandex or double brush poly for the cowl and sleeves.
Where can we sign up for these classes. How can we pay?
