While there are still plenty of quilters in the world, less & less people are picking up the trade. In fact, today’s generation looks at the art of quilting like an old, forgotten past time that is dying, if not already dead. Well, to be blunt, they’re wrong.
It’s true that quilting isn’t as mainstream as it once was, but it isn’t forgotten and it isn’t going anywhere. In truth, plenty of people still seek information about how to quilt; be it for gift giving, community projects, making some money on the side, or to start a full fledged online quilting business. And whatever your reasons are for wanting to learn how to quilt, you no longer have to go it alone as most quilters have had to do over the years.
Why not? Because, unlike in past years where you just had to learn via experience or possibly by “being taught” by other quilters, there is an easy, all-in-one guide that explains everything you need to know about quilting and how to do it with ease — it’s called “A Beginner’s Guide to Quilting“. No more long hours of research, and no more trial and error that costs you not only time, but also supplies!
The title pretty much says everything you need to know about the guide — it’s for beginners and it’s a guide about quilting. Not a whole lot to miss, right?
Well, what the title doesn’t say is that it doesn’t just cover the basics of quilting, no, it covers EVERYTHING and misses NOTHING about the simple, yet sophisticated art of quilting!
Advanced quilting tips, techniques, and methods that will take any novice — or even mid-level — quilter and turn them into a pro with little difficulty.
Now, I realize anyone can make a guide about quilting and call it “the best beginners guide” and just leave it at that. However, Penny Halgren isn’t just “anyone” in the world of quilting — far from it.
Not only is she the creator of this in-depth guide, she is an “industry” leader that has over 26 years experience with quilting and writing about quilting. With her vast knowledge and experience, she has devised a super simple 9-step system that anyone can follow if they wish to easily & quickly make a quilt.
How simple is “super simple”, you ask?
Well, it’s so simple that a 7-year old boy followed the instructions and had VERY LITTLE trouble making the quilt from beginning to end with VERY LITTLE assistance.
So, do you think you can follow simple instructions as well as a 7-year old can? If so, keep reading. If not, well, I think you got bigger problems than trying to learn how to quilt!
Let’s take a look at just a few of the Highlights of “A Beginner’s Guide to Quilting”…
As you can see, it’s a pretty impressive list. There isn’t any question that goes unanswered nor any quilting dilemma that will go unresolved. Anything you need to know about quilting — it’ll be covered in “A Beginner’s Guide to Quilting“, guaranteed.
“What’s This Going To Cost Me?”
You’re not an idiot, so I won’t treat you like you one. Nobody teaches anything to anyone else out of the goodness of their heart — everybody is in it for profit in one form or another. That being said, I’ll stop stalling and tell you like it is — the total cost of this in-depth guide is $39.
Now, is $39 worth the cost of this step-by-step quilting guide?
In my opinion, absolutely. Personally speaking, sorting through dozens & dozens of webpages, videos, forums, and blog posts to find just a few golden nuggets of information about quilting and proper quilting techniques isn’t my idea of “time well spent”. That’s my definition for “time wasted” and “time lost”.
In fact, I’d much rather spend a few bucks up front and get everything in a nice & neat package that explains and walks me through each step thoroughly.
I value my time immensely, so I really can’t spend several days piecing things together in the “hopes” that I’ve got the right information; the kind that will actually help me make a great quilt from beginning to end. And not only that, but most tips you’ll find on the internet are exactly that… simple tips. They won’t actually show you the process from start to finish, they just help you “here and there” along the way.
Ultimately, it’s up to you and what you value more; days & days of your time with lots of unnecessary frustration OR $40 bucks, which is then backed by a money-back guarantee if you’re not happy. Also here’s a great ressource for panel quilt patterns!
Do I Recommend It?
I think that should be obvious by now, but to clear up any confusion — YES, I thoroughly recommend “A Beginner’s Guide to Quilting“. If you want to know how to quilt without confusion, without headaches, and without frustration, then there is no better how-to guide, period.
In all seriousness, it’s 26 years of experience that has been condensed into an easy to read, easily understood guide that details everything from A to Z about quilting. Why wouldn’t you want it? Unless of course you like making things difficult for yourself.
Do Others Recommend It?
Ahh, now here is where the evidence really starts to pile up. After all, the opinion of one person is just that — one person’s opinion.
But, what about the opinion of 5 other people… of a dozen? Would that help you make up your mind? If so, look down below to see what other “beginner quilters” think about this guide.
