New Online Classes

Today I loaded in three new classes at the Academy of Quilting and updated the Academy Calendar. Two of the classes have a special start price for a limited time so it pays to register early. If you purchase the special rate, you can always request a later date if it doesn't quite suit.

The term Stained Glass generally refers to glass that has been colored by adding metallic salts during its manufacture then joined with black leading to form beautiful glass work. Throughout its thousand-year history, stained glass was applied almost exclusively to windows of churches, cathedrals and other significant buildings.

Recently I had a student, Connie Martin shared some of her work she had completed in Zoo Friends - an online class by Jennifer Houlden. As Connie also works she didn't have time to make the class quilt right now, but she did manage to make some bibs and a pillow case to try the animal applique during class time. She will make the quilt later.
