Teaching - Zoom teaching is lots of fun.I offer classes in both traditional and art quilts for adults or children both advanced and beginners. We can design a class that is just right for you.

Virtual Teaching - This is available individually.

Teaching from the comfort of your own home gives you the opportunity to have students from all over the world. Finding the platforms that work best for you is the challenge. In this workshop I will share what has worked best for me, but we will also look at alternatives. We don’t all have the same hardware or software.

We will look at Zoom, Google Classroom, Power Point, making videos and technology to make that happen.

In the two-hour Zoom class, we will go over all the material and then you will be invited into my classroom where you will have time to explore, digest and ask questions. I will answer online creating a dialogue to help you create dynamic classes.

This method is also perfect for in person and online classes simultaneously. Feedback from students over the past year has shown that using technology will be part of my teaching tools in the future.

Student Comments on my Zoom Classes

I have really enjoyed the quilting classes on Zoom with Joyce.  I have taken three of Joyce's classes online since January 2021 - started with the beginner Flower Garden Quilt, continued with Finishing a Traditional Quilt, and just completed the Stained Glass Cathedral Windows class.  She posts videos to explain every step of the quilt and then spends a lot of time teaching and answering all  the questions that my class members and I have for her during our zoom class time.  She has imparted to us not only information but the confidence that we can learn to grow in our artistic appreciation of quilting. And we have a lot of fun!   I now have a couple of quilting projects that I am really proud of and I am so grateful to Joyce for her patient and encouraging teaching style.  I am so glad she taught  me the basics of quilting and I look forward to learning more advanced quilting with her. by Debbie

Joyce has done an amazing job of teaching quilting classes over zoom. During the online class Joyce demonstrates concepts using different camera angles and has many samples to share with the class. Between classes she posts detailed videos and movies to demonstrate the next steps of our project and makes herself available through email and posting on Classroom to provide ongoing support. This has allowed the participants to spend class time sharing questions, offering encouragement to each other and sharing an interest in a new hobby. We can leave our quilting area set up and don’t need to spend valuable time packing and unpacking our quilting supplies to attend an in person class Joyce, thanks so much making the online experience such a success. I very much appreciate all your efforts to make the online quilting course a truly positive experience. by Pam

I was so fortunate to have Joyce as my teacher for my very first ever foray into quilting. I was an absolute newbie. Joyce explained everything so clearly, was so patient and so much fun that I’m signing up for her next two classes as well. She really instills an infectious sense of confidence and creativity into our quilting classes. Thanks so much, Joyce. by Lorene
