Have you heard of Craftsy? It's a website featuring video workshops, patterns, projects and shopping for all types of crafting, including quilting! For the next few days, Craftsy will have a select grouping of their video classes on sale for up to 75% off - a different grouping each day.
This particular class in today's grouping caught my eye and immediately went into my cart. Designing Modern Quilts with Weeks Ringle. The class includes 10 lessons with topics such as Color Theory Basics, Printed Fabrics, Designing with Solids, and Composition. All for only $19.99! And once you've purchased a class on Craftsy, you can view it over and over as many times as you like with no expiration date!
Weeks Ringle and her husband, Bill Kerr are the founders of Modern Quilt Studio (previously FunQuilts), a contemporary quilt design studio in Oak Park, Illinois. They have written several books about modern quilting...
As well as additional titles about color theory in quilting...
I've also met Weeks Ringle vending at the Madison, Wisconsin quilt show held in September, and the Rosemont IQF show. For those of you interested in learning more about what makes quilts "modern" and some personal instruction on how to incorparate those techniques and standards into your own quilt projects, maybe this is the class for you. But act fast - this class is on sale for $19.99 today only (Saturday, April 6). Click here for the specific link to the Weeks Ringle class where you can get more details on the lesson plans, materials needed, and read reviews by other quilters who have taken the class.
I have taken other sewing classes via Craftsy, and I can vouch for the quality of their videos and instructors, as well as the class lesson topics. Let me know if you decide to take this class or another one. And check back at Craftsy on Sunday and Monday for new groupings of classes on sale.
