About the DST-Club
Hi, dear Quilter Friends.
It has been a little over a year that I published my Draw-Sew-Trim eBook. It has been welcomed very warmly by quilters who love applique, quick, easy, yet very accurate techniques.
Last year I created several DST patterns, 8 step by step tutorials and many more
time-lapse videos to the technique that are available on my YouTube channel.
I started to hold workshops in the UK and plan to continue on with them. I am very happy to travel to guilds and quilting groups to teach the technique on a wide range of patterns.
I visited the Houston Quilt Festival and met my international quilting Friends on a huge venue and had the opportunity to introduce the DST technique to a lot of Quilters.
Also, I started the Draw-Sew-Trim group on Facebook to provide a supportive, friendly platform for DST fans where they can show and tell their experiences with the DST technique, ask and answer questions, make friends, get inspired by each other and find information about the new patterns and videos.
This year I would like to step forward and reach out to those who would like to take a workshop with me but because of distance, lack of time or any other circumstances they are not able to come and see me physically.
Therefore I will be launching this club on my website, where I would like to provide facilities for you to learn and grow in the DST technique, lead you through many projects step by step, showing you the little details and give the inspiration to create your own ideas.
This learning facility is a new and unique "DST video-pattern" series. The episodes of the series are videos focusing on one given project and leading you through the process of creation step by step with thorough explanations. The DST video-patterns are available on the website for purchase separately or you can join one of our Club plans to enjoy further benefits of your membership.
You will have the opportunity to meet me and other DST fans regularly. The social part of the group will remain the same: you can show and tell, ask and answer questions, chat, make friends in a supportive, friendly group of quilters.
It will be like an ongoing workshop with many participants where everybody could work in their own space and time, learning through their own chosen projects with extra support and guidance from me and other members.
You will have four choices of membership depending on how much you would like to get involved and how much you would like to benefit from your membership.
See details in the table above.

I have been reading and listening to your valued comments and requests. That made me think about ways,
I could improve and widen the support and learning availability to the DST technique. We came up with the unique and interesting idea of DST video-patterns. This learning facility is very much like a regular pattern in its structure, but all together is more like an e-learning tutorial.
E-learning tutorials you might know can be very pricey. The next good news for you is that a DST video-pattern is just a fraction of these costs. That sounds good, doesn’t it? Every video pattern is an easy to follow video tutorial making this method the best way to learn.
Our DST video-pattern will give you a pattern-based, step-by-step structure but the steps include an adequate video-part with spoken or written explanations instead of a static picture. This method of instruction is more detailed, more accurate and helpful for those who are learning visually and acoustically easier. You will still get the written instructions and the downloadable .pdf pattern as well.
These patterns will be available on a better deal in the different Club plans.
