Welcome to Michael’s Online Learning Academy!

How fun is it learning to make something online? Super Fun & Very Convenient!

I love teaching in person. But many of you know how much I have also loved filming and posting quilting video tutorials on YouTube over the years. This “Online Learning Academy” is an extension of that, also offering some Livestream Zoom options. Check out the current offerings below. Many of which have optional fabric kits available in the shop.

FREE YouTube TUTORIAL: JUDY’S CURVED PAPER PIECING (HOW TO ADD A VEIN)

Here is a free YouTube video demonstration of a technique that many students ask to have a more thorough video of to refer to.

Tutorial on how to do Quiltworx Judy Niemeyer’s curved paper piecing. Also known as “adding a vein”. In this video, I demonstrate how to prepare a small foundation paper piecing unit for the curved paper piecing process – then demo how to sew and trim the units so they are ready to be added to the quilt.

I have uploaded this free video to give students an idea of what to expect from the information I present and how I teach in an online setting. I hope you enjoy!

Quiltworx YouTube Video Short – Haystack Cookies

Take a look at this Video Short from Quiltworx. While not a full-on tutorial, this fun short video shows you how to make the beginner friendly stashbuster pattern, Haystack Cookies. This unit is featured in several Quiltworx patterns and is fun and easy to make. Put several together for this table runner or add more units for the wall hanging as shown.

I will be uploading a full tutorial on this in the near future. but in the meantime, enjoy this fun quick version! The Haystack Cookies pattern is already available in a downloadable version from the Quiltster Marketplace!
