Beginning Quilters: Let's Get You Started!

Have you thought about learning how to hand quilt?  Perhaps you've seen beautiful antique quilts... or quilts which are brand new and made by loving hands... And just maybe you've said to yourself, "I sure would love to learn how to do that, but I don't know where to begin."

You are not alone!  There are so many people who would love to start HAND quilting but don't know where to begin.  It's nice to take a class for beginning quilters, but sometimes it can be difficult to find such a class.  There are also many places online where you can learn how to quilt, including lots of YouTube videos! Here are a few good sites to try:

In addition to the links listed above, there is a large group of hand quilters on Facebook that you should consider joining.  This group of ladies and gentlemen (YES, men quilt, too!) is the most friendly bunch you could hope to meet.  They will answer questions, provide guidance, share what they know, and so much more!  If you haven't joined the Celebrate Hand Quilting Facebook group yet, please do so now!

  1. Thank you for the links. I'm not really a beginner, but I'm anxious to watch them since I'm not very efficient.

  2. I have never hand quilted but will be starting the quilting on my hand embroidered quilt top in the next few months. I have to finish the embroidery first. I appreciate the links so I can get some knowledge prior to starting.
