Need some quilting inspiration? The class schedule for January is posted on the AcademyofQuilting.com website. We have 24 classes listed to begin in January. Not only do we have many from Quilt U, a lot of which have been updated with videos and refreshed information, but we also have brand new classes beginning and several that have not been around in a while have come back.  Which one will you pick to start the new year? Maybe you'll pick two!

Do you have many quilt tops sitting in the cupboard waiting to be quilted? Or are you tired of sending your quilts off to a longarm quilter for them to finish your beautiful quilt? Quilting your own quilts is very rewarding.

If you are a Quilt University follower, by now you will have heard that Quilt U is going to close down by the end of the year. As my classes end at Quilt University, I will be moving them over to the Academy of Quilting. I have moved a handful already including Tote That Mat.

New Online Classes

Today I loaded in three new classes at the Academy of Quilting and updated the Academy Calendar. Two of the classes have a special start price for a limited time so it pays to register early. If you purchase the special rate, you can always request a later date if it doesn't quite suit.

More on Machine Quilting Class

A few days ago I mentioned about the changes I was making to my machine quilting class at the Academy of Quilting. Today I made some further videos to upload so now it is all ready to begin next week. I had so much fun making videos that I decided to use the beginning of one to make a little promotional video for youtube. I figured it would be fun to share it here with you.
