Online Classes and Workshops

Free Motion Quilting Academy

Free Motion Quilting Academy is an online course designed to guide you from a beginner quilter (yes, even a baby beginner) to a confident intermediate quilter. Inside this class, you’ll learn how to set up your home sewing machine for free motion quilting, how to make a quilting plan (deciding what to quilt where), and learn how to stitch dozens of free motion quilting motifs— plus, you have access to the videos forever!

Estimated time to complete (watching videos, sewing, etc): 30+ hours

Quilting Basics

You can’t help but pet the fabric at the craft store, but you have no idea where to start making a quilt. Quilting Basics starts at the very beginning: “What do I need to make a quilt??”, includes my Dogwood Blossoms quilt pattern, and steps you through making your very first quilt. Each video was filmed live, so it’s like being here in my sewing room— with all laughs and chatter along the way. Come join me, and soon you’ll be confident saying, “I’m a quilter!”

Estimated time to complete (watching videos, sewing, etc): 8-10 hours


Intro to COlor Theory

You have a beautiful stash— you really do! But do you have a hard time “shopping your stash” or seeing the possibilities of fabric you already have? Girl, I got you. This class is designed to help you look at both the color wheel and your stash differently so that you can confidently change the colors of your favorite patterns and make quilts that are more YOU!

Estimated time to complete (watching videos, sewing, etc): 3-5 hours
