Skill Level Definitions:

Beginner Level:
Beginner Level: Entry level, does not require any prior training although it is better if you have taken our beginner quilting class to learn the basics.  Classes at this level are designed to give those who have had training in the basics more practice and review of these skills. This level requires no previous experience in technique, but does require basic knowledge of machine or computer for computer-related classes such as machine embroidery classes.

Advanced Beginner:
A beginner level project but participants must be at the point where they are comfortable in the use of the rotary cutter and of their sewing accuracy.  Participants may be asked to do the cutting prior to class and will likely have to complete part of the quilt outside class time.   This class may introduce a technique that is beyond the basic quilting techniques but still at the beginner level. This level assumes a full understanding of sewing or embroidery machines with some basic experience in quilting or garment construction. For computer classes at this level, some digitizing experience and basic knowledge of computer terms is helpful.
 
Advanced:
Requires that the participants be proficient at the basic quilting skills (i.e. use of rotary cutter, straight & accurate seams,  pressing without stretching, understand common quilting terms and know how to assemble common blocks such as half square triangle, pinwheel, flying geese). This class may introduce a technique that is beyond the basic quilting techniques and beyond beginner level. This level is for those looking to further and refine their technique. A full understanding of garment construction, quilting and sewing terms is assumed. For software classes, this level would also include knowing basic software and digitizing terms.
