Need a break from books and TV? The American Quilter's Society based in Paducah, Kentucky, is here to help.

In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, the American Quilter’s Society, the largest quilting membership organization in the world, decided they want to bring the joy of quilting to everyone at home during these difficult times. To that end, they are now offering anyone one free virtual class through their professional-quality online quilting tutorials on their website iquilt.com. To redeem your free class,  simply check out the course options here, select your class, and enter the promotion code IQUILTFREE at checkout. This code is valid through June 30, 2020.

Currently, classes include options for beginner-to-advanced quilters with choices like Fabulous Flower Photo QuiltsCreative Fabric Painting for Landscape, and T-Shirt Quilts Made Easy. Already thinking ahead to Christmas? Try Audubon’s Christmas Tutorial. Thinking beyond decorative throws? Try Three Embellished Fabric Bags. Needless to say, we're having a hard time narrowing it down to only one class.
