Supply List

These type of tablet Operating Systems can only run Apps, and unable to work with a comprehensive full design program such as Photoshop Elements.

• To view the videos, you need a viewer like QuickTime or Windows Media Player.
• To view the lessons, you need a PDF viewer like Foxit Reader or Adobe Reader.

  1. Well Carla that was the shortest time out I have seen anyone take. Your’e like the energiser bunny – you just keep going and going. Remember to take some time for family AND yourself.

    • LOL, deciding to hold this eClass as a self study option makes sense. It was really too jammed packed for a traditional 3 week class anyway. Still taking my break, though I will be available to all students via email. Who knows? This format may work better for me, so this will be a trial. Btw, How’s those feathers coming along? 🙂

  2. Not sure it if’s my computer or what, however, all I’m getting is a grey blank page.  I’ve never had trouble wth your ite before.   thanks, jane

    • Hi Pat, I responded to you via email, but the short answer is that this is a class for any Tablet device (plug in or PC Tablet) that has the ability to run a comprehensive program like Photoshop Elements- that software used in the class.

      Love my Ipad, but you are limited with what you can do based on which APP you are using.

  3. Carla, I have the Waacom Bamboo tablet that I use connected to my Macbook. I have Photoshop Elements as well as the Adobe CS5 suite. I have basic knowledge of Photoshop and am very interested in learning more about using it for quilt design. Will my setup work for this class? It almost sounds like you are using stand alone tablets, which my Bamboo is not. Thank you.

    • Hi Ramona, actually, you own the same tablet that most students use in the class. If you would like, go ahead and sign up at your leisure. Be sure to watch the registration video (if you are not familiar with moodle education software) at

      Just scroll down until you see “Registration” with a video under that. Then, to register, go to and create your account, then follow the directions shown in the video. I will email you in case you need to contact me for any reason. C
