Well, that's kind of funny Barbara. Cuz, I figure I'll have all of you to clarify things that I missed or wasn't sure of!  Perhaps it will be the blind leading the blind?

I have a question about the set up for these classes. I've never taken one at Quilt University, but I've done other classes at other venues online. Is this a class where you get extensive written materials and then follow the class on your own or are these video classes with some written material, but where most of the instruction is in the video? I've done well with both types, but if they are video classes and you lose access after 4 to 6 weeks, they won't work for me. I tend to need to go back and watch the class again.

I am seriously thinking about taking the class. Having a bunch of people who are also taking it to talk about the class with would be wonderful. And I really would like to not just learn the beginnings of the program, but start moving into more difficult areas.

Starling this class I'm taking now is really more written material .and some pictures , but it is very well written and the instructor is quick to answer any questions you may have. You do work on your own , but that to is my preference.  I have not found the classes to be difficult ,in this format. Hope that helped.  this is one of the reasons we are all going to post here so that all of taking the class can sorta work together and  get thru this .It does help when you have someone doing this with you..Barbara

Like Barbara said, it's written materials that you follow step by step. Very detailed and thorough with graphics used as examples. I put the class instructions for each week in a 3-ring notebook. As I was going along, I used little sticky tabs to "bookmark" certain pages that I wanted to easily reference. The online written instructions do go away a few weeks after the last lesson is over but if you've printed them or saved to your hard drive you will always have them to reference.

I knew I wouldn't be able to devote the time to take the class when it was offered last year. I just made PDF files of all the lessons and did them as time permitted. You can also print out all the class material and take the lessons as your time becomes available. As far as I remember, there are no videos available for these classes. But then again, this was the class offered last year. Maybe this year they have videos. 

Hope this helps.

Thank you. That was exactly what I needed to know. I've done Photoshop - Digital Scrapbooking classes exactly this way, and they worked just fine. In fact for a computer class, possibly better than videos would.

I've ordered the class. I will be gone for a week in early September, but I'll be back before the class starts. My experience in the past tells me that I'll print out the classes and put them into a binder. I already have one with the pdf classes that come with the program. I see that the second class will start about the time the first one ends and I'll probably take that one too. Registration is not yet open for that one, but they have put dates on the late September and early October classes.

Barbara, what's the name of the class from Quilt U? Sounds interesting.

What a compliment for you to be asked to teach a class for your LQS. I love FMQ, but I'm not as good at it as I would like to be.
