I've included four more of my classes as on-demand class, this means you can start whenever you like and take as long as you need to complete them. For the early bird registration, I also included 25% off from now until Christmas - a good way to treat yourself. This will be available until Christmas, then that will be the end of the sales. I won't be changing any more of my classes to on-demand at least until we see how this new format works.
Changing things up? I love refreshing the way I present my classes either with new technology or by adding opinions and changes. I consider this to be developing myself and enhancing my teaching and design skills. I love to learn so this is my opportunity to learn and what is better than learning? Teaching what I know to my students in the best way I know how - thus developing myself so my students can also develop.
If you have been to visit the Academy of Quilting website in the past 24 hours you will see what I'm excited about - our new concept of on-demand classes. But that's not all, as an introduction to an alternative way in learning I'm offering four of my own classes at half price. Yes, you heard right, half price. I do have to say though, this is for a limited time only, yet you are not bound to the limitations of a scheduled class, you can begin whenever you like as you wish, now or in the new year or whenever.
People in Places class is starting up very soon, and all are welcome! To me, the best quilts are those that are the Impressionist quilts - the quilts that depict one crystallized moment in time - whatever the subject may be, whether it's your cat jumping at a canary, your son skipping rocks, or even your daughter in an outrageous hat shop with that gleam in her eye. Come play with us and learn to make people in places, working through a couple of small projects, then continuing on to creating your own photo in fabric. If you can trace, you can do this class!
I don't know about you, but I'm fascinated about Linda Schmidt's class Filament Fantasy and her use of threads and fibers. I am definitely going to be taking a closer look. In the meantime, I asked Linda to express some words about what the class is all about.
Love quilting, and also love quilting software? If you have bought EQ7 (or one of the earlier version) and have hesitated to use it because it seemed complicated, here is the perfect class for you. Tutor Shirley Goodwin shows you how to design and use blocks and quilts with this hugely popular quilting software. Featuring screenshots and videos of every step, you will learn how to select, color and place pieced blocks in a multitude of different quilt styles and layouts. You will explore color theory and experiment with colors and fabrics without needing to cut into your stash, and go on to draw your own block and quilt patterns from scratch.
I have to say, Lily Kerns has been working really hard, through all elements such as computer crashes and storms causing power outages, to bring her CorelDraw learning class up to date with the newest version of CorelDraw. Not only has she changed the lessons where needed but she is now including a new way of learning CorelDraw, through video. The class has three methods, so one is bound to suit you if not all three!
Do you know what Broderie Perse is and how to use it? I used it in one of my stitch along challenges last year so if you joined me then, you'll know what it is all about. It is a form of applique using motifs from fabric prints. Susan Dorchester teaches the class and knows all the ins and outs. Today she shares with me and you some of the pieces she has made using Broderie Perse.
Do you have an embroidery machine? Do you know how to use it with confidence and ease? Did you know you can get free designs for it?
What is, Crazy quilting? Crazy quilting is not just slapping together whatever scraps you have laying around and hoping for the best. There are different methods of constructing the blocks depending on the look you want to achieve and the kind of scraps you are working with.
