What's stalling your quilting journey?


Are your skills hitting a plateau and you want to take your quilting to the next level?

Are you struggling to add your own creative touch and innovative ideas to quilts and want some inspiration?

Do you want to move beyond cookie-cutter designs and patterns to those that encourage personalization and creativity?

Are you unable to find a community of like-minded quilters who truly get it?  A place where you can join from anywhere, anytime, and at any skill level knowing you'll be welcomed and supported through every step of your quilting journey.

The answer is COMMUNITY! 

Seasoned Makers Community is a place for quilters to walk beside each other, away from social media, and share their amazing quilting journeys with people who get it.

Every month you'll be guided along your quilting journey...


Each month, the Seasoned Makers pathway takes you on a journey of Making, Learning, Connecting, and Gathering. All with the intention of finding your own unique quilty style so you can build a beautiful quilting legacy.
But, the best part is you won't be alone because our amazing community will be there as you...

Make + Learn

Fresh projects every month!  Each month, get exclusive quilting patterns and projects, often with video, PLUS accompanying PDFs showcasing a fresh skill or technique. 


With our monthly Sip 'n Sew say goodbye to sewing solo! Bring a beverage and any in-progress project. Seek advice, or relish the fellowship. You'll always find connection.


Just like your local guild, enjoy a fun gathering where we share finished projects, get a new Mystery Quilt block, and peek at the upcoming month's project and supplies. 

I believe quilters are some of the best people you'll ever meet...


At their core,¬†quilters are¬†generous and kind-hearted people who¬†spend countless hours making¬†beautiful quilts‚ÄĒnot for themselves, but to give away!¬†


Imagine being part of this world.

A Little Magic every month...

Seasoned Makers puts you on a creative pathway to help you develop your own unique quilting style. Along this pathway you'll explore different quilting styles, methods, and techniques that help form your one-of-a-kind quilting personality.
We do this with our four layers of learning called M.A.D.E.
M.A.D.E. is a 4-month rotating learning sequence. Each month in the sequence includes a different type of project intended to advance your quilting. Once the 4-month sequence ends, we start the sequence over.
Here's how it works...

  Month 1: (M) Mastering

Mastering {basic skills} establishes a solid foundation of quilting techniques and skills, offering experiences that enhance your quilting confidence.

   Month 2: (A) Advancing

Advancing {skills} with projects that advance quilting abilities and techniques. Become confident and begin experimenting with various patterns, colors, and designs.

Month 3: (D) Delighting

Delighting {in projects} like bags, mug rugs, and mini quilts. It’s where you can let your imagination soar and add unique touches to simple projects. 

Month 4: (E) Expanding

Expanding {horizons} lets you soar as you apply skills in innovative ways, explore new quilting avenues, and showcase your unique, artistic flair.

The Seasoned Makers Quilt Binder + Journal works alongside the M.A.D.E. learning sequence, keeping things fun and organized.
In addition to M.A.D.E. projects, you'll have access to an ever-growing library of workshops, patterns, tutorials, and the private Seasoned Makers Community.

Annual Mystery Quilt

Some blocks will be super simple and some not so simple. 

Along the way you'll be growing your skills while trying to guess the quilt layout.

Expect lively conversations in our Sip 'n Sew Meetup.
