Just click on the video below, then read on...
We deliver hours and hours of EXCLUSIVE & DOWNLOADABLE VIDEO CONTENT in the private-access VIP Member Club, from a different teacher every month of the year. That content is split into bite-sized chapters which offer you a really in-depth, well planned out opportunity to learn and improve your own creativity in so many different fields, some of which you may never have tried before, how exciting! For example, when Moda designer Janet Clare chose QAYG (quilt as you go), she created 16 fabulous chapters featuring; hand finishing the seams, hand tying, working with layers, design and direction decisions, wadding, planning, hand quilting, free motion and machine quilting! Not only was it beautiful to watch and inspirational, but also a great opportunity for you to learn from her many many years of experience. You can sew along too and have a finished project at the end.
Every month we choose a totally different subject area with a different teacher offering you terrific variety. One of our members, Julie, said "I love it, it's like being on a year long creative course, I get to try things I never thought I would, and the best thing; I keep all the footage!"
If that’s not enough, you have access to a VIP Facebook Group to become a part of this growing community, sharing your makes each month, a chance to WIN a Zoom class every month and each month you’re also invited to an hour-long VIP Club: Members-Only live Zoom Chat with our Tutor of the Month, where you will be able to join in and ask any questions about that month's content! Oh, and did we mention Patterns are included too... all for this great value price of £14.99 a month, or the equivalent in your currency as you can join from anywhere in the world! If you pay for the whole year you get TWO months for FREE!
(Please note, you can join for 'the year' to get your two months for free in which ever month you choose. We don't have a start or end point, the VIP Member Club just rolls on each month. So whenever you pay for your year membership, you will get two months for free.)

February 2023 with Gary Mills
If you're someone who wishes to push both personal and traditional boundaries within your creativity, then this is the VIP session for you. You will start with an introduction to a cohesive theme to work from; ideas will develop through mark making, collage and collecting related imagery. “What’s in your kitchen draw?”, how can you use related imagery to explore and expand ideas to create something interesting and original. In this session you will explore, simple collage, and mark making, even tracing around images with stitch to create unique stitched drawings. You will use both found papers and scraps of cloth and other materials to combine into beautiful mini studies with the inspiration taken from the subject title.
