I am so proud to announce my first CRAFTSY class is now available!
"Escape the Ditch: Empower your Quilting"
This class will suit ANY quilter has ever felt frustrated or bewildered by the free-motion process. The class will give you insight and understanding of why free-motion is so different to "normal" sewing and give you new ways to think and approach your machine for free-motion success.
Although I prefer to demonstrate on my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen, this class applies to ANY and ALL brands and models of domestic sewing machine. So jump on aboard and Empower your Quilting today.

My online class has been up and running for 6 weeks now and over 100 students have plunged into it. Sandy Archer was one of the first to participate and she has shared her finished piece, Lizard and has given feedback for all to read. Thanks so much Sandy.
"Flying into colours online course was perfect. I live in a small community with 6 kids at home so as you can imagine, I have a busy life and not really the opportunity at this point to head off to a weekend craft retreats.
My 5yr old daughter and myself sat at the computer watching the lessons, sharing an ear piece each of the headphones (good quality time)
I found the course very informative ..easy to understand step by step, clear instructions and was great watching as others attempted their own little masterpiece
The photo gallery was great ..every time I hit a creative block I could look over it and get ideas and inspiration.
The course was explained clear and simple enough that little miss 5 sat with me and instructed me as to what we do next.
Thank you Helen for sharing your talents in a format that people like myself can access and achieve fantastic results from the comfort of our homes and busy lifestyle."
So if you would like to have fun and learn like Sandy and her daughter, go to helengodden.com and purchase Flying Into Colours online class today. Here is a sneak peak video on YouTube https://youtu.be/8BmGQclwqFI

At long last as promised my daughter has helped me create a mini video about Tension Issues. The info in this 9 minute lecture is helpful with any domestic sewing machine and any quilting machine and specifically I demonstrate on my Sweet 16.

Finally- -I am proud to announce my NEW Online Class, 'Flying Into Colours" If you have ever dreamt of coming to one of my infamous Arty Farty Weekends, now you can from the comfort of your own home. The 20 students were filmed at one of my Arty Farty weekend retreats, the students are real, their results are real and the fun and laughter is 100%. Purchase this class and have access to 8 video segments, 3 patterns, requirements list and class notes. I suggest paints you can purchase and you then work along with the students at your own pace. Special price only $55. This is the first of its kind; an online class that is live action, not a tutor sitting talking to a camera. I hope you enjoy and tell your quilting friends.
Would be a great way to spend time with quilting friends doing the class together. I am grateful to Annie and James for all their help and to the 20 lovely ladies who were filmed over the Arty Farty weekend, you will be receiving an email with a complimentary link to the online class so. BiIG thanks to you all.
