Here’s a great gift idea! Create a handbag using the Broderie Perse method. This technique is easy and fun and always makes for a very special gift. My Broderie Perse class is “on –demand” so it is always ready when you are.

November's on-demand class review - part 3

Posted by Ruth on 4 November 2016 | 0 Comments

Tags:

For part 3 of my presentation of on-demand classes, I will list three of my own classes. Currently, I have over 20 online workshops, some are scheduled while others are on-demand. The focus on scheduled workshops is the one-to-one teacher help for the given time (much longer than physical in-person workshops where you only have a day or two which is shared with other students!).... but back to my on-demand classes which have continuous access meaning you can start anytime. Of course, you still have access to the teacher for help in these classes too.

One of the great features of our on-demand classes is that they have continuous access so you can start any time and finish any time. You also get to ask the teacher questions and see if any other student has asked questions - with answers from the teacher of course.

This November we decided to take a closer look at some of our on-demand classes. These classes have continuous access with message boards where you can ask questions if you need, however I find that the classes are so well written, often there are no questions to be asked.

I want to make a Christmas Tree Skirt

Posted by Ruth on 16 August 2016 | 0 Comments

Tags:

A number of years ago, I designed a Christmas Tree Skirt for a friend. I designed it in such a way so that I could have a number of different options included. The tree skirt base is made up of blocks and wedges to form a circular design to fit the tree. There are several reasons why I have designed it this way.

Ruth Blanchet's free software for quilters online workshopIt is such a good feeling to have another class completed - it's been a number of years!
