Quilt Classes/Workshops

Teaching modern quilting virtually is one of my passions!

My classes and workshops are suitable for all levels of quilters. And they are an excellent introduction for quilters who are curious about modern quilting trends. During the class, I coach attendees in combining improvisational techniques with a planned layout.

  • You can learn with me and work on your project from your own sewing space.
  • No need to pack up and carry your machine and most of the fabric you need.
  • No wishing you had brought along just one more print or solid!
  • No worrying about your 'travel machine' breaking down or leaving the power cord at home.

Testimonials

Here’s what students say about my on demand quilt classes.

This was a beautifully written workshop with many modules. The modules included live visuals with Carole actually creating the blocks and "thinking" out loud.

I enjoyed the quality of the videos. You have a soothing tone to your voice and you speak at a conversational pace. Each word is clear, easy to comprehend and retain by the listener. I LIKE working at my own pace; NO TIME CONSTRAINTS.

Keep going, Carole! I so enjoy these classes. It's like getting together to sew with you. I love how you talk with your hands, too. I enjoy that!

Love how detailed the videos are. They are great for all skill levels.

I thought the instruction was very thorough and detailed. I loved seeing the demos in the videos, and it’s so nice to be able to watch them over and over again. I also loved the detailed workbooks that accompanied the class. I also loved how active Carole was with answering questions and giving feedback in the community forum.

I thought this was a great class and I enjoyed it thoroughly! You are a fantastic teacher Carole and I look forward to the next class!

Here’s what students say about my live quilt workshops.

The class was wonderful!  It was my first Zoom class and I wasn’t sure what to expect but it was a lot of fun.  You are a great teacher, you speak well and slowly which is so important to understanding what the class is about.  I would be happy to take another class with you anytime.

Carole Lyles Shaw is a wonderful teacher…. I truly appreciated that Carole answered everyone’s questions because class sizes were small enough to allow that. She kept everyone on pace so there was no time wasted.  Carole visited the breakout groups to see if we needed help, everyone felt comfortable to ask if they needed help. We all helped each other in the breakout groups. I have never experienced that in other classes. 

I want to thank you for a well organized, very informative and fun class.  This was my first Zoom class and you made the process the next best thing to being together in a classroom.  

Carole, your preparation instructions for the class were excellent.  The [prework] tutorial on fabric choice was very helpful.  During the class your instructions were clear and easy to understand. This class gave me a whole new insight on improvisational piecing and design. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to break the rules.
