About this course

I'm so excited to be able to offer this brand new course to all of you!   So here's what you will get when you participate in this  8 week course:

Dancing with Design-Composition for Quilters

  • 8 weekly lessons with specially designed practice exercises and brand new video lessons
  • My best hand outs and worksheets to help you learn
  • Ongoing ability to post questions and pictures to myself and the group (I am always notified of each comment and question, and reply as soon as I can.)
  • Access to my Private Reading & Resources List (includes great books on design, great websites, blogs, where to find hard to get materials)

What you will need:

All you will need is a few hours every week and a decent internet connection.  The lessons will be available every week, one at a time, AND after the course is over, you will still have access to all the materials online.  

Why this works: 

I will give you the nuts and bolts of design, so you can make your own amazing work, or improve the work you are already making.  Built into the course is the practice that makes perfect. Traditional quilters as well as art quilters can definitely benefit from this course.
