I am very excited to announce that my new on-line class with Craftsy.com has been released and you can check it out by CLICKING HERE!
I have had many, many requests to provide video instruction of some of my quilting techniques on my website and I was never able to pull it all together. I was honored to receive an invitation from Craftsy to film a class and I am very excited with the results! Several U-Tube videos were released and cover beginning-ending your quilting lines; how to scribble; how to fill a space with a free-form feather and a short video on my beginning in quilting and the support that quilters provide for each other. You can check those out by CLICKING HERE!
My class is 11 episodes and each one is a different lesson. I walk you thru a basic basting lesson; how to get your rhythm or what I fondly refer to as your “humm purr” and getting your stitch length perfect; how to design and quilt beautiful feathers; background techniques; the basics of design and how to design overall and medallion whole cloth quilts; how to apply these techniques to pieced quilts; how to make your borders fit; how to scribble and do pebbles, and so much more! At the end of each lesson I have a small trunk show where I share my samples as well as my linen wholecloth quilts so I can show you how the techniques I’ve taught you look on a finished piece.
All of my lessons will enable you to finish those UFO’s, not create new ones, and give you the confidence to beautifully quilt your tops.
The cool thing about a Craftsy class, and what convinced me to film with them, is that the class is yours forever. You can watch it as many times as you want…whenever you want. The interaction with my students and being there to answer questions, even when a class is over, is very important to me. With the Craftsy platform I can do that. You have the ability to take notes, make bookmarks, ask questions, post pictures, etc. All the students in the class can help each other with questions and concerns and I will be there too answering questions and providing encouragement on your new journey.
I am very excited about this new adventure and hope you will join me in my on-line classroom!
