Well I wanted to give you a review of my very first ZOOM class. It has opened a whole new world for me. During these times of "sheltering in place" one of the things I have missed is getting together with fellow stitchers. There is something about sitting with other stitchers, learning something new, and creating. So much has been canceled this summer that when I saw my local quilt shop The Stitchin Post
listed a new opportunity to take a Zoom class in real time with Jean Wells I was ready! Although it would never replace sitting next to a bestie, I was happy for the opportunity to learn next to other quilters from across different time zones.
This was the first time for this type of class and you have to admire the spunk to give it a go! Each student that was registered was sent an ID code and Password in order to join the class at the designated time. I scrolled through the pages of students...there were 9 pages of students with 25 on each page! Never would that many students be able to be in the same class physically! Jean did a fabulous job and even after all these years of quilting I learned so much.
The class started with an introduction by Valori Wells.
One of the benefits to taking the class was that Val video taped the class and it will be available to those who signed up for the class. Which meant I didn't have to take notes but could relax and take in the information that was being shared because I would have access to it later. So what did I do? I tacked a binding, had a glass of ice tea, and enjoyed the class!!! With ZOOM loaded on my laptop, I had a great view!
After the class was over you could type questions on the chat feature for Jean to answer for the entire class. Yes, it was worth trying and now I know that I won't hesitate to sign up again! Jean has two more classes coming up in June...give it a go!
Have a great week and happy learning!
