Education

  • Featured Guest Designers

    Each guest designer shares an exclusive pattern with members— many of them include a special technique they love, there is an online trunk show and they share the background story for the pattern.

  • New in 2016, we have an interview with the guest designers (recorded) so you can get to know then just a little bit better.
  • We offer podcasts, trunk shows and interviews of the guest designer specifically for the members to get to know them a little better.  We showcase designers who are from around the world and in a different area of expertise.
  • Quilting 101 

    Over 40 topics and articles on quilting.  Everything you need for quick answers, insights on batting, thread, binding and more.  It’s the perfect place to start when just beginning your quilting journey.

  • The Backstory 

    Quick stories from members about their journey in quilting, a special project they have been working on, something near and dear to their heart….or whatever they have to share.  This feature is monthly and is so fun to get to know the members just a little bit better.
