Online Classes FAQs

Here is some information about my live online classes.  If your question isn’t covered here, please email me at

What happens after I register for the class? You will receive an email with two links.  Please save this email.

    • COURSECRAFT SITE:  One link will take you to the CourseCraft private classroom for this class.  You will find PDF’s of the full supply list with instructions for the prework.  You will also be able to download the complete pattern.  You will also find videos and any information that will help you get prepared for the class.
    •  ZOOM LINK:  The live class sessions will be held on Zoom in a password protected meeting room.  The link is private for you and should not be shared with anyone.

What is the prework for the class?   Most classes have some sort of prework—such as selecting your fabrics or precutting and sewing some simple blocks.  Please leave sufficient time to complete the prework before the live class session.  That way, you can take full advantage of the live class session.

What is Zoom—will it affect my tablet or computer?  Zoom is ‘cloud based’.  To access our live sessions, you will need to log into Zoom using the link in the email you receive after registration.  Please log in at least 15 minutes before our scheduled start time.

My plans have changed. Can I get a refund for the class? Since this is an online class with immediate access to all of the materials, I cannot provide refunds.

What device will I need to participate in the Zoom sessions? These sessions are best viewed on a PC, laptop, Mac, Chromebook, tablet or iPad.  Smartphone screens are too small for you to be able to see the live session demos easily.

Will the Zoom sessions be recorded?   The sessions will not be recorded  to respect everyone’s privacy.  Recording the live class session by any participant is expressly prohibited and may incur  penalties if this policy is violated.

What if my Internet goes down during the class? You can log back in to the site using the same link provided in the confirmation email.

Can I register a group?     Registration fee is for one individual only.  Each member of your group would be required to register separately.

If my course includes prerecorded vidoes, how long will I have access to the CourseCraft class site? All class materials and videos will be available for 30 calendar days following the live sessions.

Can I share the materials with my guild or sewing group? Recording the live class session on any device is expressly prohibited and may incur financial or civil penalties.  All videos and printed materials for the course are protected by copyright so please do not share or post them.  I appreciate your respecting my intellectual property.

Can I share my quilts on social media or enter them in quilt shows?    YES!!!  I encourage you to show off the wonderful quilt or other project that you make in my classes.  Please identify that the quilt was made from or inspired by my pattern or class. I would love it if you included a link to my website on your label for quilts that you enter into shows. If you post a photo of your work on social media, please tag me:  @carole_lylesshaw on Instagram and Carole Lyles Shaw on FaceBook.

Can I sell a quilt or other project that I make with your pattern? No,  I regret that I cannot provide a license to sell any item made with my patterns.
