"In the past you may have been intimidated by tight little curved seams, even downright petrified by curvy quilt blocks and more than a little skeptical that a curvy outlook could be in your stitchy future. That all ends now. No longer shall ye be limited to the straight edge. No longer shall ye look with fear upon that which inspires you..."

Handstitched: A 9-week course - 5 weeks of instruction alternating with 4 weeks of "space", allowing you room to enjoy each stitch. Handstitched, which caters to both beginner and intermediate sewists, starts at the very beginning discussing needles, knots and threads. Each week we'll focus on one category of handwork moving from Reverse Applique through Embroidery, English Paper Piecing, Applique and Hand Quilting with full, detailed photo tutorials and many downloadable templates. Each week you can choose from 3 very different projects for one that really fits your experience and interests. Quilters will love that each week one of those projects is an installment in a handstitched masterpiece, the Modern Medallion quilt.
We are modern sewists, and we do so love that sewing machine. But, actually, there are still beautiful effects that are best realized needle in hand. There's also something simply delicious and inexplicably relaxing about the slow, steady pace of handwork. I hope you'll consider joining me for some slow stitching this summer, making beauty stitch by stitch, and developing new skills piece by beautiful piece.
Handstitched was originally released June of 2012 and was offered again January 2013.
