Let’s Start Simple! (Elevate)
In this class, you will learn how to get started, with drawing your own designs in Creative Studio. The class is geared towards the Elevate user, who is interested in drawing their own quilting designs, but is new to using Creative Studio. We are going to start simple! We will focus on learning the “Draw Line” and “Draw Arc” features, to draw our own quilting designs. If you draw along in class, you will walk away, with six new designs that are ready to quilt with your Elevate … as well as a great foundation to expand on, in creating your own designs. This course features more than two hours of videos.
Un-Mess the Nest (Elevate)
Have you ever purchased a pattern only to find out that it is deeply nested and won’t work properly on your Elevate? Let Karen share three options on how to modify the pattern to play nice and stitch out perfectly. We will use CreativeStudio to alter the original pattern and create three options for stitching with your Elevate.

Let’s take Apply to new levels. The possibilities are endless: borders, around applique, dividing large open areas, circular piecing, serpentine lines. This class will provide inspiration, along with easy to follow guidelines and techniques to Apply P2P designs along nontraditional lines.

CreativeStudio Handbook: Just for Beginners
New to CreativeStudio? This class is a perfect introduction to the world of CreativeStudio! Georgia Stull guides you through the basics so you can begin your great adventure in computerized quilting with a Gammill Statler or Elevate.
Draw Pattern to Create Semi Custom
Use P2P patterns to achieve a complicated looking design made up of triangles that fit together to cover the entire quilt. The appearance is a custom looking that allows for accentuating specific areas while stitching continuously from edge to edge.
Illusions of Continuity, Using Fill to its Fullest
Take your understanding of “fill” to a whole new level. We will use simple patterns to create background fills that seemingly flow behind foreground elements. Learn to use a “Master Pattern” to create multiple fills that limit the edge stitching found in more ‘typical’ fills for a fully custom design.
Log Cabin: Light and Dark
There are many blocks that have a light and dark side, such as Log Cabin and Half Square Triangles. There are also quilting designs that have a light and dense side. Come see how the two can play together to create an endless collection of layouts.
