Introducing the

The Digitizing & Design Masterclass
Ready Get Set Go! 

Ignite the fire of creativity within you.

What would it be like to be able to confidently create amazing machine embroidery and quilting designs that stitch out beautifully, just like an experienced designer, without the frustration that comes with learning the software by yourself?

How would it feel to see things differently so that you not only create designs you love but discover how they work together as a whole in a quilt to create a masterpiece?

That may sound impossible but it's not! I've ignited the spark of creativity in hundreds of students who didn't think they even had a spark. Now I'm bringing the topic of digitizing and design to you in an online format you can access right from the comfort of your own home.

Since we're doing this online, you're not limited to the short class time that comes with an in-person class. You decide when you want to watch each module (and you can go back and rewatch at any time), with time to implement what you've learned, and the opportunity to ask me questions live. Not to mention the amazing and supportive group that you'll also get access to - another way to chat with me, ask questions, and get to know your classmates.

The Digitizing & Design Masterclass Ready Get Set Go! 
is NEW and IMPROVED!

Join me for this 8 module course and implementation journey designed to ignite the creative fire within you and show you how to create your own quilts, machine embroidery applique and quilting designs that will stitch out beautifully every time.

REGISTER NOW!

No more frustration of trying to learn the software by yourself.

If you can turn your computer on, open the software, and follow along, you can create your own designs.

No more spending hours searching for that one design you'd really like to add to your project.

Now you can create it!

No longer will you be limited by your embroidery machine's built in editor or what you can find online because I'm going to show you how to create a design from idea to beautiful stitch-out.

Stop wondering if this design will work here, how the quilting should go, and even what colors to use because during this class, your most creative self will come alive and you'll see things like you've never seen them before.

Imagine the feeling of knowing that not only did you make that beautiful quilt yourself but you also designed it. Now when you make a quilt or other project, you are truly leaving a piece of you for future generations.

It's more than something you made,
it's something you created.

Don't have any ideas in your head right now about things you want to design?

Don't worry!

I'm here to ignite the fire of creativity inside of you so you start to see possibilities for yourself.

You'll start looking at things differently. If you're anything like me, you'll start seeing quilt designs in napkins and floor tiles. You'll be able to fully develop a design that fits your needs to give that project an extra special touch.

You'll understand design at every level - from what you can do in the hoop to how it will look on a much larger scale in the quilt as a whole.

It has been amazing for me and I was "aha" from day 1. This class opened me up to a new world of creativity. I am still amazed every time I open it up and see what I can create. I learned something from all the modules. I plan to go back and spend more time on each.

I loved the community atmosphere with people helping each other. I think the challenges are really key to learning the material. Q & A's were also very helpful. This class teaches you the skills and confidence to use the software in a creative way.

The Class enabled me to create beautiful designs and helped me to take control of Hatch and Coreldraw. I really enjoyed learning new techniques from an expert and having support from the Facebook group and the Q&A's which have been invaluable. Excellent course.

What you'll learn

Each class has a focused topic and is presented so that you can watch what's happening on my screen as if you're looking over my shoulder.

Watch each module when you're sitting in front of your software - as many times as you like. 

There's also a handout for each module so that you can follow along and write down your notes and ideas.

Each module has a challenge to help you to implement and practice what you learn and there is a live Q&A session each month so you can be sure your questions are answered.

The odd numbered modules are released on the 2nd of the month, May through August.

The even numbered modules are released on the 16th of the month, May through August.

The live Q&A session is on the 4th Tuesday of each month, May through August, at noon Pacific time. Each Q&A is recorded so that you can watch it later if you miss it.

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Since I was a young girl, I've had a love for sewing.

That love transformed into a hobby, a passion, and then a career.

Nearly 2 decades ago, I started designing my own quilts and offering those designs (as well as classes on how to use them) to quilters all over the world.

I discovered my super-power and purpose.

To ignite the fire of creativity in the hearts and minds of people who are hungry to experience the transformative process of creating something beautiful themselves.

Watching people of all skill-levels and walks of life grow their skillset and their confidence has been incredible.

Now I'm here to teach you more than just how to create something beautiful with a design collection you've purchased.

I'm here to call out the creative being inside of you
and show you what's possible.

It's time to break out of the box and see the infinite possibilities waiting for you when you do.

I'm combining my PhD in Theoretical Computer Science and experience from years working as a Software Engineer with well over a decade in business as a quilt designer to bring you a truly unique learning experience.

  • Not only have I taught quilting and machine embroidery applique to customers all over the world, I've taught Computer Science at the Masters level.
  • I'm an award winning quilter whose quilts have been displayed all over the world.
  • Even more gratifying than winning my own awards, hundreds of my students and customers have won Blue Ribbons, Best in Show, etc. with quilts they've created using my designs.
  • I have thousands of happy customers and hundreds of hours teaching online.
  • I'm really pretty handy with computers and software, and I LOVE to play in my digitizing and design software.

I'd love for you to come play with me!

What's Included in The Digitizing and Design Masterclass Ready Get Set Go!

8: 60-90 Minute Learning Modules

Each pre-recorded module covers a new topic. Watch and listen, take a few notes on the cheat sheet included with each module and let ideas start to take shape in your mind.

The odd numbered modules are released on the 2nd of the month, May through August.

The even numbered modules are released on the 16th of the month, May through August.

Time to Implement

Studies show that watching something and then doing it yourself provides the best results when learning something new. You'll watch the lecture in each module and then have time to implement what you learned.

4: 60 Minute LIVE Q&As

Once you've had time to play with the tips, techniques and ideas presented in each module, there will be a live Q&A Session where you can ask questions and make sure you have a good grasp on the material.

The live Q&A session is on the 4th Tuesday of each month, May through August, at noon Pacific time. Each Q&A is recorded so that you can watch it later if you miss it.

Online Portal

Our portal is online, accessible anywhere with an internet connection. 

With lifetime access, there are no worries if life gets in the way.

Monthly Challenge

Each module you will be offered a challenge to create something with what you've learned. There's nothing like practice to make perfect, and to fan the flames of that creative spark!

Closed Facebook Group

An extra place for questions and accountability! The only people inside the group will be people enrolled in the Masterclass. Bounce ideas around, get fast answers and make new friends.

This is the perfect course for you if...

âś“ You love to learn something new.

âś“ A lecture style class with pre-recorded videos and Q&A sessions is a great way for you to learn.

âś“ You enjoy step-by-step instructions and like the idea of having videos you can watch and rewind as needed.

âś“ You are comfortable with using your Windows based computer/laptop and have no problem installing new software.

âś“ The thought of making your own designs makes you want to jump for joy.

âś“ You love quilting and machine embroidery applique and are ready to take your skills to the next level.

This is likely not for you if...

âś— You only want to learn how to use the software.

âś— You struggle to use your computer.

âś— You don't have a computer mouse/are unwilling to get one/don't like using one (laptop trackpads won't work).

âś— You don't like to watch videos or participate in Zoom meetings.

âś— You don't want to stretch your creative muscles.

âś— You don't already have the required software or don't want to purchase it.

If you've tried digitizing and design in the past but couldn't get the results you wanted, you're not alone.

Many have tried and given up because they felt they just couldn't learn the software.

But I've found when you have someone to show you what to do in a focused, bite-size way, even students who struggle on their own can be successful.

This course teaches you just what to do and gives you the solid foundation you need to move forward and create beautiful designs on your own.

This experience combines pre-recorded videos that you can watch again and again with step by step cheat sheets.

There's built-in accountability with live Q&As and the monthly challenges to keep you on track.

It's time to turn your creative ideas into reality

and I'm going to show you how to do just that, one lesson at a time!

Say goodbye to frustration and tears as you try to learn on your own and wave hello to endless creativity and infinite fun when I show you what's possible in each module.

Join The Digitizing and Design Masterclass Ready Get Set Go!

and I'll show you how to create your own quilts, machine embroidery applique and quilting designs from idea to stitchout.

(Even if you have no idea where to start and feel very uncreative right now!)

You learn so many new things and all the small tips that I had no idea about. I have worked with Bernina's software for almost 15 years and learn new things all the time.

Kathy P.


I liked the modules about digitizing with Corel and V9 when it could be applied to anything other than quilting.

Janis J.


I love Sarah's enthusiasm and extensive computer and software knowledge. "Aha" moments were at every turn and step of the way!!!
