How did you learn to sew or quilt? Did you learn from a parent, an aunt or grandma? From a neighbour? From your Home Economics teacher or 4H leader?

I asked this question some months ago on Instagram and got so many varied responses. Some people learned the traditional way, at Grandma’s knee. Some, like me come from a dressmaking or tailoring background, others jumped straight into quilting and have never sewn clothes in their lives. There are some that belong to, and actively participate in their local guild, and others that, through perhaps location or circumstance aren’t able to access classes or in person support and have learnt many things online.


Would you believe me if I told you that I had never been to a quilting class in person? Everything I have learnt, from patchwork piecing to free motion quilting, has been online, through blogs or instagram, or read in books.

That’s where Craftsy came in. I have been a member for some time now, and enrolled in many courses through them. I love the fact that they offer a money-back guarantee, although with teachers as high profile as Leah Day, Angela Walters or Camille Roskelley, I can’t imagine that many people need to make use of that.

I have taken, and thoroughly enjoyed the following classes….

Pre-cut piecing made simple by Camille Roskelley

Machine Quilting: Small Changes, Big Variety by Angela Walters

The Secrets of Free-Motion Quilting by Christina Cameli

Free Motion Quilting a Sampler by Leah Day

Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing by Carol Doak

All of these classes have taught me so much. I love seeing different approaches by the different teachers. They all have their own tips, tricks and shortcuts.


I love that I can go back to a class for a refresher any time I need it. I can fast forward, rewind, download class notes and material lists, and ask questions at any time.

If you are just starting out on your free-motion quilting journey, I would most strongly recommend Christina Cameli’s class, “The Secrets of Free-Motion Quilting”. Her style of teaching is very relaxed and she packs a lot of information in, so it will get you from beginner/intermediate to confident quilter quite easily. As this class is currently on sale for 50% off, it’s also excellent value. Even if you don’t have the time to start quilting this weekend, it’s a great time to buy, so it will be ready for you when you need it. But hurry, as they are only on sale until Monday US time.
