This course can be taken as a preliminary introduction to quilting to obtain a basic understanding of all that a project entails, including both necessary and recommended equipment, fabric, notions, tools, and supplies. Preferred brands and typical pricing will be included, where applicable, in an attempt to provide insight to anticipated project costs. For this approach, there are no prerequisites or needed supplies.
For advanced beginners, this course can be taken both independent of, or alongside, a quilt project. Course objectives are presented in order of project start to finish for easy reference throughout the progression of your project.
For those seeking hands-on instruction, we offer a private course tailored to your specific quilt project. In addition to all class information and instruction provided online, one-on-one meetings can be scheduled, as needed, including a trip to your local quilt store for pattern and material selections, in-home demonstrations and personal instruction on various techniques, or for general support throughout the process. Limited areas of accessibility. Contact us for more details.
