Sonja Shogren
Online Workshops / Classes

I have been teaching quilt classes since 1989. During that time I have been fortunate to work with students locally and internationally and in 2005 I was nominated for Teacher of the Year through the "The Professional Quilter" journal. In 2009 I began to offer selected classes online, starting with Match Play.

Match Play

Some Online Match Play Prior Class-Attendee Comments

...Sonja -- I take a lot of classes and read a lot of blogs and feel that I am an intermediate/advanced quilter. And I LOVED your class. It was one of the best laid out classes and anybody could do the class online. And the pattern itself is SO much fun. I absolutely loved this class.

... Sonja, I enjoyed the class very much. You always have good work pages and instructions I especially like the work pages you give us to plan our color schemes. That really helps Great class and I look forward to some more. Keep me on your email list and let me know what you plan next.

...The class in my view was a very good one.  You obviously put a lot of thought, skill, and planning into each phase of the class, and are able to express yourself very well even though you are not face-to-face with the person you are teaching.  You and (your Webmaster) worked very well together as a team --  The website is VERY east to use. 

...I've enjoyed the 'online experience' and thought the material was well thought out and easy to follow.
