I would love to do some crazy quilting like those I see on pinterest. There are some gorgeous pieces out there! But I think I am past the window of opportunity for that kind of needle work/embroidery. My fingers just don't do that anymore.:(

I hear ya'...my eyes are my problem. I'm hoping that needlepoint on a painted canvas will still be an option for me in the future.

REGISTRATION will remain open until midnight on Saturday, 28 October (Central Standard Time)

NOTE: I do not accept late registrations for classes...you need to register within the dates of the open registration period. I'm sorry, but I just have too much going on to keep up with early or deal with late registrations.

The FREE class is self-paced, and expected to take 4-8 weeks, depending on the time you have available to complete the 12 assigned Tasks.

This is the last offering of this course for 2017. The next class will be some time in 2018.

These 12-Tasks include:

1 - How to Use the Class Blog
2 - Selecting Supplies
3- Design Principles of CQ
4 - Sewing the Block
5 - Surface Beading Techniques
6 - Template Seams
7 - Shape Seams
8 - 11 Various Silk Ribbon Flowers
12 - Finishing (lace, charms, etc.)

The class is FREE, you will not be charged anything for the instructions. You will need to obtain your own supplies as I do not sale kits.

Link to the Basic Supply List

Basic CQ supplies include silk ribbon, pearl cotton threads, tiny beads, etc. as the photo above indicates. None of these are in large quantity for a single block that measures about the size of a sheet of print paper.

You will be required to use a quilting hoop (Q-snap is fine).
You WILL be required to access the private class blog (upon an invitation sent to you) and post photos of your work as you progress through the class. This is an ON-LINE course, so basic computer skills are needed (printing documents, uploading photos, etc.).

If you are interested in taking this course, please email me at shaw.kathy@yahoo.com and provide me this information:
Your first name
Your last name
You country of residence
Your state of residence IF you live in the USA
The email address you wish me to send class instructional handouts to.

After you register, I will send you a Welcome Email AND Google/Blogger will send you (at my request) an Invitation to join the Class Blog where the class will be held. Watch for BOTH of these emails, check your spam folder. If you do not receive by Sunday morning, 13 August...then please email me to let me know. I don't want you go get "behind" in class right at the start. :)

Because this is an ON-LINE internet class:
You will need to follow some simple instructions to register and gain access to the private class blog. Your name and email will need to be entered; but NO social security or credit card information is required. Just basic information to "recognize" you as a class participant.

You will need to be able to take a photo of your work, and upload it to the class blog. You will get instructions on "blogging" so don't worry if you don't currently do that now; you will learn.
But, you DO NEED to have an operating camera and be able to take photos.
You do need a basic understanding of how to save these photos and then retrieve those picture files. IF you use an IPad to take photos...you will need to email them to yourself, download them to your computer, and then upload to the class blog. If you use a phone or camera...follow the instructions for that specific camera to upload photos to your computer.

NOTE: You will be given class handouts/instruction in the form of emails and pdf documents.
The pdf files can be opened with Adobe Reader (free software on the Adobe.com site)

You need to be able to open these handouts/instructions and save them.
You can also print as you desire. In total, the course contains over 200 pages of information...so paper/printer will be required if you want to retain a hard copy of this information.

Hugs, and I hope to see you in the class!

This Basic CQ Class (BCQC) is a REQUIRED course...before you can sign up to any of the other crazy quilt courses offered throughout the year. You begin with this course.

How will I find out when the next list of class registrations will be open? I am doing a Crazy Quilt Along with Katie Bock on QATW now but I have not done any of the seam treatments yet.
