Kathy came and gave a presentation at the Baytown Area Quilt Guild on Monday, April 5th, 2021. What an excellent program she presented with so many lovely quilts. As program chair, I had so many compliments from our members saying they thoroughly enjoyed her talk and the amazing quilts she… presented. Read more “Fundamentals Of Quilt Making – a ZOOM Class”

Kathy is an amazing instructor! Don’t miss an opportunity to learn from one of the best! I’ve taken two of her classes. I live in Indiana, but I would fly to Texas to take another class from her!

Six classes will meet once a week for 6 weeks in the evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 CST.

Class sessions will be recorded so that students can review the classes at their leisure if they find it necessary. Each week you will have both a sewing homework assignment and a cutting / prep assignment for the next session – but just for a single block so the time required should be manageable. Weekly instructions and patterns will be emailed so you can print them as you prepare for each class. I will also host “open sewing sessions” where you can log into ZOOM for additional support. Supply list and additional materials provided upon registration.
All BobKat Quilts classes include our no fail guarantee: I will be available to you for questions and support until your quilt top is done! Email, phone calls, face time, Zoom… I’m here to answer questions, fix problems and help you finish your project!
Class fee is $99 and includes all PDF instructions, block patterns and finishing instructions. Classes will be held on the ZOOM platform. Email me at email@example.com if you have questions!

Are you new to Zoom? Zoom is free software that makes it easy to participate in our two way, online classes. All you need is a smart phone, iPad, tablet, or a computer (PC or Mac), and access to the internet. (If you can stream Netflix you can Zoom!) You don’t have to pack up your sewing machine or get in you car to take our classes. Take this course from your sewing room or your sun porch! I’ll even run a special Zoom test session to let you test out your equipment and connection before the classes start so you can focus on quilting, not Zooming!
