We have followed her blog, Tallgrass Prairie Studio, since before Modern Quilt Relish was off the ground. Jacquie is independent, warm, encouraging, kind and creative and a founding member of the Modern Quilt Guild. Very importantly, she is a wonderful public speaker and a great teacher who clearly loves sharing what she knows.
So when I read here that Jacquie had a new Craftsy class a week ago I was hooked. It is called Creative Quilting with your Walking Foot. In a word, awesome! Learning new things is both a joy and overwhelming for me. Jacquie keeps all the joy and takes care of the overwhelming. She delivers her information in such an organized fashion, both visually and verbally reinforcing each step along the way, that you feel empowered to give it a try! I will be quilting with my walking foot.
The Craftsy platform is fantastic. The class is beautifully filmed, seamlessly edited, and great fun to watch. You have the ability to back up, speed up, ask questions, make comments, make written notes, mark parts of the videos you want to remember and go back to, get help from the instructor or fellow classmates, etc. I am a convert. It was just so dang enjoyable!
Now, some Big News!!! We are so excited to share that we are working on a book, to be published by Stash Books in October 2015. Seems like a very long time from now, but deadlines loom and we will be busy, busy, busy.
Leaving you with a touch of color!
