I'm so jealous of Cincinnatians! We lived there for 30+ years. Now live in Maine. Otherwise I'd be there in a heartbeat!

See you! Enjoy your time teaching!!!

Have a great time!

It would be great to have a few of these rulers. So nice looking and great results!

Yes I always learn something in her classes now if I could just remember it when I need it 😁

Thank you Kate, lots of good info for everyone in your classes.

Hello everyone. I’ve no intentions of getting a long arm but am enjoying the knowledge Kate is sharing.

Hello everyone and Kate. We are here again waiting for a tropical storm to visit for a few days with rain. Do hope weather people are wrong but not likely.

Hi from Northern California. Thank you for the demonstration and tips!

Sorry just arrived, is there a ruler base under the fabric? Thank you

Can you explain how to tack off on a long arm? I am brand new to long arm. Thank you!

I love to watch and learn in case I ever get a long arm.

Good night I have to sleep now, I have to go up earlier tomorrow than I usually do… thank for great class…. 🥱🥱😴😴😴

Not sure if the problem is my end but it froze and then came back and is now frozen again

Di I am the same way. Love her teaching and usually learn something even if it’s on a long arm machine

Thanks, great class, will have to order the ruler

Loved the demo. Worked with a long arm last week but it was computerized pattern. Someday I will be able to do this custom stuff. Thanks.

Can’t see because your shoulder is in the way

Kate , Thank you for showing us these great tips and designs. Always love your classes😍❤️. Wishing you a great afternoon and a wonderful week. 💕

So just in case someone missed it, if you took From Beginner to Quilt and Next Steps classes and have the templates for both of those, you will not need to purchase any new templates for And Beyond!

My need that ruler list is so long now so it go from my working room to my bedroom and back

Okay guys I have to sleep now, it’s over midnight here in Sweden…. Good night everyone!!! See you…

Virtual videos are the best way to learn. Donelle, you do a great job of teaching.

Thanks so much ladies! Love spending my afternoon with you. Makes me go into my sewing room. So much inspiration!

Both of the first classes were excellent. I've sewn for many many years and I learned alot of piecing. Donelle's tips are great!

Love your work Donelle and especially how you figure things out thankyou 😊 we appreciate it 💜

Thank you sew much Donelle and Megan! Fun class tonight!!!

I always learn something new each time I watch these videos. Thanks

Thank you so much for all of these classes and tips it has been my pleasure to be your student

Here from Livonia, NY. I have these templates so will be fun to use them.

Working on next step, class was wonderful

The pool noodles are to be used to sandwich your quilt layers together

Donelle, that was me!! I got the confidence from your Beginner class to use the rulers for an adorable baby quilt!

Before Donelle finishes tonight, could I have some tips on hand positions on the large size as I have small hands and am having trouble,e hold large template. Thank you.

I came in to late. I loved the picture of the quilt you just showed is there a pattern

I went to a sale today and bought 70 new spools of decorative thread. Won’t it be cool to change thread with each eight rotations?

I normally buy sets but I only bought the required size of that one!

Wow this is going to be fun and beyond. Looking forward to this.

Hi Nanne and Sue. Been and trying to get my AirPods to turn on🤔 and there must be can’t get them to work.

Those stitching lines disks help me with completing a design from the next steps class because I bought the wrong size template

Rulers are expensive. I have the sampler 6 pc set and the 12” arch. Which rulers do you recommend

Loved next steps. Just have the dashing and binding to finish

What are the pool noodles for? Rolling your quilt to put through your sewing machine?
