Skillbuilder has been designed to be an aid to improve your quilting skills. It is essentially a step-by-step guide to gaining confidence with your own abilities. Starting with Skillbuilder 1, you'll gain confidence with handling the fabric with the sewing machine and improving accuracy with simple blocks. Skillbuilder 2 introduces more difficult blocks by way of feather patterns. Skillbuilder 3 - Mastery again takes a further step by introducing more complex blocks and patterns again. Finally, Design Builder encourages you to design your own patterns. If you feel that you need to build confidence with your accuracy levels, we recommend that you start with Skillbuilder 1. If you feel more confident, start at a level that best suits you.
