From the QuiltCampus Newsletter!!!!

It's ME!!!  I'm so excited about becoming a teacher for QuiltCampus.net.  Check out a little part of the newsletter.

Meet Our New Teacher

Mary Marcotte is a quilter who has been sewing most of her life. A mother of three boys, she designed and sewed for her children as they were growing up. Now a grandmother of several girls, she loves to design and sew the little dresses and girly clothing that she missed earlier.

An avid quilter, Mary loves the entire process from designing to binding. She has been a high school teacher and college instructor for over 20 years, which gives her the advantage of understanding the many learning styles of students. She is especially adept at rewording or rewriting process notes to give students optional ways of learning.

Mary lives in the deep South where she enjoys teaching English, library sciences, and quilting. Her quilting classes are fun, interpretative, hands-on experiences that keep students laughing, quilting, and begging for more.

New Class Coming Up!
Stained Glass-Three Circles by Mary Marcotte
Have you wanted to make a quilt with the look of stained glass? If so, this is the class you've been waiting for! Make a happy, cheerful quilt that looks like the stained glass windows in churches and monasteries. Well, perhaps a little smaller….but the method is the same whether you're working on a small quilt or huge one. So let's learn on a small quilt that can grace any wall.
Since the quilt we complete in class is a bright, cheerful one, you may want to choose colorful fabrics to work with. The center of the quilt has three circles that are each different in design, but we begin with the easiest and work our way to the most difficult. I give you as many options as possible when choosing supplies and try to give you a couple of different directions so that you can use the method that works best for you.
Everyone taking this class will come away with a beautiful stained glass quilt-totally complete, not just a quilt top! Plus, you'll be able to use this method on other stained glass quilts, even purchased patterns from other designers.

It's me again.  If you're interested in taking my class or another class with Quilt Campus, take a look at the QuiltCampus site.
