Come and learn with us
We are Jo, Karen and Lynne, three British designers, teachers and authors with many years' experience in quilting and sewing. Over the last few years we have also amassed a huge amount of experience in online teaching and video tutorials. Through our online Academy we can now take this shared wisdom to the next level by offering a whole year of online tuition.Join The Academy!
Lots of classes, lots of inspiration, lots of ideas from your three tutors!
Join us for a year or a term of workshops and masterclasses
A whole year of weekly video workshops, masterclasses and zoom classes starting on 1 March 2023 with Jo, Karen and Lynne - your pass includes full access to all six of the taster weekend classes.
During this term your three tutors, Karen, Jo and Lynne will be bring various different quilting techniques to the table to broaden your skill set and give you choices when quilting your projects.
Term 3 Pass
Term 3 is all about sustainability. Reducing, re-using and recycling your fabrics. The term pass also includes bonus binding master classes in month four from Jo, Karen and Lynne.
In this four-part workshop, Karen will show you techniques to slowly stitch life back into your much loved clothing including adding decorative sashiko stitches and patches of treasured fabric scraps to breathe new life into your worn items.
Lifetime Access now available for all classes!
The Academy has been such a huge success that we have decided to extend the access for all our classes! These now come with Lifetime access.
Lifetime means the lifetime of the Academy (which obviously we hope continues for years and years to come!) so you can now purchase an online class without worrying about running out of time to complete your project!
So much more than an online class
The Academy year started on 1 March 2023 and is structured into three terms centred around the themes of Choosing and Using Your Stash and Scraps, Confidence and Play with Colour, Sustainability - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
The Annual and Term Passes include a community space where we can share our work and offer enthusiasm and feedback to our fellow crafters, all safely away from social media. You can also use this platform to communicate with your tutors.
Where Can I Find Out More?
Inspiration, Education and Friendship
We aim to encourage creativity and play in all our students. Our hobbies should be fun!
You will find each of us resourceful and generous teachers with years of experience to draw on. If we know how to do something then we’ll be sharing this with our Academy students! Through our pre-recorded videos and live surgeries we want our students to feel as if they are shadowing us in our sewing rooms and sharing all our trade secrets.
