  1. We can find many of these coupons by online
    inside staying a home itself. Dog training aids are there to help you succeed in teaching your
    dog, this could be teaching him obedience, agility or any other
    type of teaching you want to do. When dog is of six month
    neuter him because neutered dog perform better and this age is the
    best time for obedience classes.

    I am back to school, as far as learning how to quilt. Thus far I have only done two quilts and just loved how they turned out and the pure joy of creating something beautiful and useful too!
    I am ready to learn just about anything you can throw at me. I have also recently been doing some watercolor painting and want to combine the two together. So could you show us how to take something we have drawn or painted and turn that into a quilt. I’m just not sure how to go about that. Thanks :)

  3. Eugene Gerdes says:

    I really like learning new techniques and tricks regarding improving accuracy and piecing blocks together.

  4. Margaret B says:

    Free motion quilting is one area that I’ve had little experience, and I’d love to build up my confidence to start doing it on small projects.

  5. Paula G says:

    I would like to learn about free motion quilting. Also threads and the correct needles.

  6. Chris says:

    I would like to learn how to go about picking fabrics to get the look I see in other quilts already made. I have such a hard time picking fabrics not already in a collection. :( BTW, a friend gave me a subscription to Quiltmaker magazine and the doggie quilt is the cutest!!! Thanks for the give away!! :)

  7. PJ says:

    I want to change my answer – what I’d really love to learn most is how to use a quilting calculator so if I want to add or subtract rows from a quilt, I can still figure out how much material to buy. I keep falling in love with quilt patterns that are too large or small for the size I want to make. : )

  8. Caralyn Turner says:

    I’d like to learn more about color use in fabrics. Quilting gives us such rare opportunities to become artistic with use of color and design it would be of real interest to readers.

  9. Lisa says:

    If I went back to school I’d like to learn more about applique. There are so many methods and I want to know them all. I’d also like to improve my handquilting. I’d like to start over at the beginning to fill in all the gaps, that is what I’d most like to do! It seems there is always something to improve upon. ~~Lisa

  10. grace says:

    I would love to get into a hands on class but can’t, so I have been learning through the many tutorials through blogs like this one that have kind and enthusiastic teachers. My current “struggle” and it always is for me until I “get” it, is hand quilting. So that would be the one I’d ask for first. Everything else would be good to go through however because it is not a comprehensive schooling I’ve had so far. Knowledge is power they say, so bring it on! Please.

  11. DebbieKL says:

    My back always hurts after a day of sewing. I’d love to learn how to improve my posture!

  12. Darlene Jacolik says:

    Most definitely I need to learn to free motion quilt. I also want to try needle turn applique.

  13. Nancy B from Many LA says:

    I’d love to see if there’s an easier way to do Double Wedding Ring.

  14. Janet Davitt Yatska says:

    If I went back to school, I would study color and textiles. I would love to go to classes on Long Arm quilting.

  15. Leslie says:

    I’d like to learn about turning a picture/design into a paper-piece pattern. I already have a lifetime’s worth of patterns to make from Quiltmaker and Quilter’s Newsletter … but there are always room for more, right ?

  16. Deb G. in VA says:

    I like to learn how to hand quilt, free motion quilt and long arm quilt … that way I might get some of my flimsys finished! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  17. Goodness, I think all I’ve had is a 101 class! I need to learn applique, more accurate cutting and piecing, and how to be brave and try a difficult pattern. :-)

  18. Mary Burn says:

    I would like to learn how to “stipple” a quilt. Most of quilting friends have mastered it but I guess I am a little afraid to try it. I have practiced a little but still am not comfortable with it. Thanks for including me in your Back to School giveaway.

  19. Lee Ann says:

    I would like to take more long arm quilting classes. They are not offered very often, actually it seems that the semi-annual quilt expos offer the most. When they are available, you have to take advantage of them. Especially if they feature an award winning LA quilt artist.

  20. annie says:

    Just one? I’d like to learn how to use all the embroidery machine tricks you can do on the computer to manipulate your design and make it your own.
    I’d also like to learn how to machine quilt on my domestic machine.
    so I didn’t end up telling you just one. sorry

  21. Pat V. says:

    I would love to learn more about applique. In fact, I’m planning on taking some classes at my LQS!

  22. Kathy Biciocchi says:

    If I went “back to school” I’d like to learn all of the tips and tricks of machine quilting on a home machine.

  23. Baye says:

    I’d love to learn how to do a crazy quilt.

  24. Lyn McCarty says:

    I am so intrigued by the bright retroish “modern” fabrics. I would love to learn more about how to combine such wild fabrics into artistic but functional quilts.

  25. Lorri says:

    I love learning all things. How about som time mangement, or some applique technique. Thanks for the giveaway

  26. MargaretQuilts says:

    I’m dismayed that my piecing accuracy is less precise and would go back to school to remediate on cutting and quarter inch sewing precision. Thanks for the chance. Margaret.

  27. Donna Amos says:

    I would love to learn more about using and putting scrap fabrics together to make beautiful quilts…. It could be new or stash fabrics, just more about how colors, fabrics, and patterns can come together to complement each other.

  28. Colleen says:

    Applique and hand quilting! thanks!

  29. floribunda says:

    I’m always ready to learn more about free-motion quilting…

  30. Lyn says:

    I’d like to learn more about:
    1. quilt pinning/basting tips & tricks…always looking to make that easier!
    2. quilt as you go
    3. smaller quilting projects that can be taken along with you
