Going to Quilting College

Online Quilting Courses at Fons & Porter
That could be YOUR name there.

I like to think of education as an ongoing process. We learn new things all the time– we learn new skills at our jobs, we learn more about our family and friends during social interactions and sometimes we turn to the Internet to pick up new recipes on Pinterest. While the Internet is a great resource, sometimes it just doesn’t do the job, especially when it comes to special interest areas like, say, quilting. 

Fons & Porter knows that so we’re bringing a brand new idea to the table – online quilting courses! It’s like quilting college.

I know what you’re thinking– “take a quilting class online?!” Maybe you’re not sure what to expect or maybe it just sounds scary. (It’s not, trust me. I took a day-trading class online. I know scary!) In fact, taking a quilting class online might easily be your favorite decision yet.

Think about it– it’s basically the best of all your favorite things. You get in-depth and ongoing lessons in everything quilting, on your own time and in the comfort of your own home.

Are you free September 29th? Take a Course in Quilty: Let’s Make Patchwork with Mary Fons. It’s a three-week class that includes six lessons: ImageHandler.ashx

  • Lesson One: Patchwork Basics
  • Lesson Two: Straight-of-Grain vs. Bias Help
  • Lesson Three: Make a Log Cabin Block
  • Lesson Four: Make an Economy Block (Paper-Piecing)
  • Lesson Five: Make a String Block
  • Lesson Six: All About Triangles

Still unsure whether you’d be interested in a quilting class? Just go check it out, and think on it a little. You’ve got until September 29th to decide.

This is the first, but won’t be the last Fons & Porter online quilting course. What quilting topics would you be interested in learning more about? We want to give the people what they want!

Happy Quilting and I hope to see you there!

  1. Could you please tell us the cost of the class? Not all of us can just sign up and not care about the cost, especially those of us who live only on Social Security.

    Thank you.

  2. Please remind me when we are closer to September 29.If this gives me A Diploma to teach I am very interested.I am an avid quilter of 15 years.I am getting ready to retire and would like to become A teacher to keep myself busy.If you know of any other sources for me to qualify to teach I would appreciate your input.Thank you Mary Ellen Zimmer nannioebob@g-mail.com.

  3. I am an advanced quilter but I still want a Diploma…… When will you be doing an advanced version of this program. I have completed Interlocking Stars so I would need something VERY challenging in order to take classes.

  4. Are college credits to be earned? Can you take these courses later on line? For example, I will be on a cruise on the 29th of September. Does that mean I can’t take the class? Is there a degree to achieve?

  5. I’m a self taught closet quilter. I’m always ready to learn more including machine embroidery. Simplifying stack and wack is something I have not attempted. Get a session on that subject and you can count me in.

  6. I love this idea. Do you have any idea what future classes will cover and what cost estimates? How many classes do you need to attend to graduate?

  7. This probably isn’t the right place to ask a question but I would like to know if it’s possible to re-watch the show with Angela ?? doing her demo on the longarm. I didn’t get her last name but this was the second show I had seen her do and she’s very talented and interesting and I’d like to view again.
