Online Primer Workshops Available For a Limited Time

Today I released a few online primer workshops available for purchase, but only for a limited time! To coincide with the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival, you can purchase individual workshops from my Vintage Modern Makers membership. While the membership is not open, I wanted to give you the chance to experience a few of the primer workshops which include sewing projects, artist and textile expert interviews, history lessons, inspirational albums sharing project ideas and treasures from my collection, heirloom printable art, and charming articles and uplifting essays all centered around a specific theme. The three primers we have available are the Pearl Button Primer, the Bandana Primer, and the Gingham Primer.

What is a primer?

A primer is an introductory lesson to vintage textiles, notions, and the history of handmade. It’s inspiration for your heart and your hands. My goal with each primer is to give you several ideas on how to upcycle your vintage collection or thrift shop finds into modern makes that you can enjoy. Beyond the projects, you will get historical insights on each fabric or notion and be introduced to other artists and textile experts to learn what inspires them to collect and create.

Click below to explore each primer. All primers are sold individually and you will get instant access once you purchase them on the website.
