Presenting “SIMPLE THINGS” An Online Class

January 2013

Join Jeana Kimball and fellow appliqué enthusiasts for a year-long appliqué class. This all new design was created exclusively for Jeana’s 2013 students.

Each month students will be mailed via US Mail a printed copy of the designs for that month (six blocks) along with a generous-sized written lesson. Each month you will also receive an e-mail from Jeana with color photos of that month’s appliqué blocks. You will receive 2-3 photos of each block. The photos are in such close detail that you will feel you are holding Jeana’s block in your hands. All fabrics, and sometimes stitches, are visible in these clear and thorough photos of the blocks that Jeana stitched for her version of Simple Things.

An exclusive Yahoo group is being organized for members of the class and all students—both local and online—are invited to join.

For those who do not know about Yahoo groups, members of a particular group correspond via e-mail that is delivered to everyone’s inbox. All questions, answers, and discussion are automatically sent to everyone so we are all “on the same page†all of the time. Also, members can post photos of their finished blocks on the group’s page so everyone can watch the progress as each quilt develops. Or, you can e-mail photos of your finished blocks to our moderator, Ivy, who will post them for you to our group.

There is no cost to join a Yahoo group. You simply open an account with Yahoo which only requires your name, an e-mail address, and a password (all other information is optional). Our Yahoo group will be a closed forum for those who belong to the Simple Things class only.

Enrollment will remain open until September 15, 2013. Should you learn of this class after it has already begun you may still join. We will send you all of the patterns and lessons you have missed to catch you up with the rest of the class. The fee will remain the same regardless of when you join the group.

Class Description for Simple Things

Jeana Kimball’s project this year features 4†hand appliqué blocks that will all combine into a spectacular quilt filled with every day images.

Hand appliqué, Jeana’s specialty, will be the major focus. Each month students will receive a large written lesson that will spell-out in liberal detail exactly how Jeana appliques.

You will also receive six new appliqué designs. Each applique design will be accompanied with a quote that Jeana has chosen to emphasis the image. As a life-long collector and lover of the written word, Jeana is taking this opportunity to share with you “nuggets†that she has gathered.

In addition to clear and specific applique techniques, from time-to-time Jeana will present mini-lessons that feature classic poets and writers whose thoughts give insight into living well and enjoying the journey of life.

You deserve this year-long class.

Lessons and patterns will be mailed on the fourth Monday or Tuesday of each month.

Online classes begin January 21, 2013. Cost is $180.00 for twelve months. (That is just $15.00 per month for an uplifting and enjoyable class experience as well as unpublished Jeana Kimball designs.)
