Here are some rave reviews from past online students:

“Wonderful class for newbies and seasoned quilters. I’ve been longarm quilting 4 years and was getting in a rut of quilting the same thing over and over. This class got the creative juices flowing and I can think about little else beside going home to quilt all these new designs!!

This was a wonderful class and I put it at the top of my list as the best longarm class I have had. I’ve taken classes at the APQS showroom, MQS, Innovations and online. This one was hands down the best.” – Debbi
“Carla, I just wanted to say thanks again for all that I have learned through this class. I have learned so much more than just quilting design—so many tips and ways to PPP or visualize what is in my head and how to approach the business end of it. And the tablet—woohoo! Most importantly, I have gained confidence. Thanks.” -Mel
Carla’s class was great! And her interaction with the students was wonderful. Did you sit in front of your computer the entire 3 weeks, Carla? You are an excellent instructor and I am looking forward to having more classes with you.” – Helia

If you have any questions about the class, please leave a reply.  Thank you!

  2. Hi Carla – Just finished the Intro to Photoshop Elements (PSE) class on your website and LOVED it. Great experience and I learned so much. I’m wondering if this is the next class for me or the upcoming Tablet Drawing class you mentioned on Whisperquilts. You mentioned that “techies” can use our tablets for this class. Is PSE an option for people who’ve taken the PSE intro? Thanks!!!
