Classes with sharonb

Many of you know the stunningly wonderful sharonb through her webpages and her blog.

You will go there and be lost for ages - there is the Stitch Dictionary, and I dropped the button box, and so much more.

So this is just a reminder, for those who may have missed it, that Sharon is teaching online this term with joggles, and there are places left.

I have signed up, as Sharon has only made the commitment for a one-off at this stage, and this is the sort of chance I may never have again. And I didn't think the class was all that expensive, when I checked it out. Definitely cheap compared to how much travel and accommodation would be to go anywhere to a Retreat, or anything like that!

And a lot of the stuff would apply to art-quilters in the wider community, as well as art-quilters who are crazy-quilters.

The reason I am writing this now, is that Sharon has very generously given me a look at the class notes for review purposes, and I have been completely blown away. It is like getting a full, personal e-book from Sharon, just crammed with illustrations of her work, in glorious colour, and all the theory of what she has done is explained. This is exactly what I have been after.

So, even if I didn't work through it, or take part in the online discussions that go with it, just to have this as a resource would be wonderful. To think that it might be available one day as a book is the sort of stuff of which dreams are made.

So if you have been hesitating - go for it! It suits (and will inspire) the beginner. For someone like me, who has been around a little while, it is amazing, and I am just so glad I am going to be given this opportunity.

And I am looking forward to the chance to actually take an online class, to meet up with the others working through it as well.
