Q: Why do I need a physical book if there are videos to watch?
A: Everyone learns differently. The videos allow you to see and hear what I do with the color wheel and fabrics. The workbook and the actual color wheel are for you to use and study at home. The wheel is really key to establishing a strong foundation in color theory. I’ll explain and show you how it works, particularly with difficult multicolored fabrics.
Q: What if I have to start later than the 1st day of class?
A: Not a problem! Start anytime you like. You’ll have access to the video classes forever plus you’ll have a physical printed book and color wheel forever.
Q: How & when will I receive my materials?
A: You will be mailed your workbooks (except students outside the US, see below), color wheels, and the login to view the video courses will be emailed to you.
Q: Do I have to be in the United States?
A: No. Class is hosted online, so you can access the videos from anywhere. International + Canada students will be charged shipping at checkout…but you’ll be refunded that amount. You’ll be mailed the color wheel, but will receive a pdf version of the workbook.
Q: What if I am dissatisfied with the course?
A: Everyone will get different results and put in different amounts of effort. I can’t promise that you’ll become an expert overnight, but you will certainly see a quick improvement in your color selections and fabric choices before you sew them all together!

Q: Why are the videos so short?
A: The videos might appear short, but there are several places where you are instructed to stop and start while you do the exercises with me. Don’t be tempted to just breeze through the videos and assume you’ve got it. It takes some practice and you’ll want to use the skills I teach you at home with your stash and while shopping in stores and online. I cover a whole range of material that if taught in person could be 3-6 hours! The course is broken down into smaller manageable bits so you can go at your own pace and not get overwhelmed.
Q: Who am I to teach Color Theory ?
A: I have a degree in architecture from the University of Arizona, a minor in costume design, licensed fabric designer, an artist, and serious lover of color! I have been creating art and putting my world into color order forever. I’ve been a quilter for the past 14 years. Read more about me here.
