So if you are ready to jump in, here's the link to enroll.



Because how much money and time have you spent on classes that have made little or no difference in your design ability?

Because if you keep doing the same things over and over, how can you expect a different result?

Because, what is it going to be worth to you to make the quilts of your dreams?

Because without the support and structure of this small group course, won't things just go on as usual?  We are all busy, but unless you make your art a priority, everyone else's agenda will take over.

Don't let that happen this time.  Don't let the inertia of waiting take over.
