The techniques will include dimensional surface embroidery, padded embroidery, wire shaping, and embroidery slips. The second project is a sampler of different needle-lace stitching. This is the first of two advanced stumpwork courses. The second course will be on the class roster for 2022.

Open Registration - Styles of Crazy Quilting - 5-7 Sep 2021

  NOTICE: If you have completed the Basic Crazy Quilt Course (BCQC-101) in the past...then, you are eligible to register for this course. It would be helpful to you to also have finished the BCQC-102 and Beyond the Basics Courses...but they are not mandatory requirements.


Styles of Crazy Quilting (Intermediate level)

   Open for Registration 5-7 Sep 2021


Course Synopsis:

Modern crazy quilting differs from the type of embellishing our great-great-grandmothers did because we have an extensive range of supplies that did not exist in her era. Over time, the Victorian Style of embellishing crazy quilts has given way to inclusion of more dimensional adornments. This course identifies the various styles of embellishing and then concentrates on two most common of these: Victorian and Shabby Chic. The projects for the course will be a cotton Shabby Chic Style purse and a silk Vintage Style crazy quilt block.

(Note: This class is re-designed from portions of the prior ICQC-107 & ICQC-108 courses)

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Registration is open only on 5, 6, and 7 Sep (Central Standard Time). No late registrations will be accepted.

Classes are free, no fees or special purchases are necessary. These classes do require a laptop & printer so you can get the patterns/instructions downloaded and printed easily. Therefore I do recommend you register if these are not readily available to you. 

FYI: I do not own an "iphone" nor print using a tablet...so can provide zero "technical support" to you if you choose to register using these instruments.

All of my courses are taught via Blogspot (each is a unique private blog for posting photos of your finished homework). So, experience in "blogging" is helpful...but I can walk you though the minimal instructions needed for the course, even if you have never "blogged" before. Just be prepared to be patient...and have a few back/forth emails until we work things out.

Open Registration 5-7 Sep 2021: Basic Crazy Quilt Course (Part #1) (BCQC-101)

  NOTICE: If you have never taken a course with me... this is the first you MUST take before you can be eligible to register for this next course. (Basic does not mean "beginner"... it just means the first course needed to be completed.)


Basic Crazy Quilt Course (Part #1) - (BCQC-101)

Open for Registration 5-7 Sep 2021


Course Synopsis:

This is the first course you need to take. It is a required course regardless of your skill level because it covers "how I teach" as well as getting everyone on the same level playing field for future courses. Handouts in this course will be used in the following courses as well. The course covers critical design principles; how to use templates to achieve uniformly aligned and spaced embroidery; creating some frequently used fiber embroidery stitches for crazy quilt projects; and common silk ribbon stitches and flowers. This is a "controlled" class with very specific guidelines for construction of a quilt block suitable for embellishing that allows identification of "problem areas" you will undoubtedly encounter when you are working on projects independently. There is a supply list for this course, but items should most likely be in your own stash already... possibly except for silk ribbon. This is a mandatory course.
