What If You Could Stop The Search For The Next Best Thing And Instead Unlock Your Own Creative Potential?
A 3-Day Bootcamp to give quilters and sewists the tools, skills and inspiration they need to step into textile art.JOIN THE BOOTCAMP!
You dream of a thriving creative practice in textile art…Only problem is…where do you even start?
There are 3 main hurdles keeping you from creating the art you want…
Which one is keeping you stuck?
PROBLEM N° 1
You don’t know the tools and supplies you need to get started. You have supplies at home that you’ve bought over the years, and they are still in the package. You feel overwhelmed by the pricey art stores and you don’t know where to start.
PROBLEM N° 2
You aren’t sure what to learn in what order to build a good foundation of skills. You have started projects and got stuck creating a pile of unfinished objects. You are tired of making kits, patterns and other people’s designs.
PROBLEM N° 3
You don’t have a system of capturing ideas and inspiration. You have an idea but you don’t know how to translate that into art. You know what you love but you just want to make your own original art.
It feels like there are SO MANY THINGS standing in your way which is causing you to…
Never carve out creative time for yourself
Feel like you are just not that creative
And no matter how hard you try, you’re struggling to either build new skills, or find creative inspiration. Sound familiar?
What’s Up? I’m Brandy!
If you are new to me…I am a Quiltmaker, Textile Artist, and the Founder & Host of the Quilter on Fire Podcast. I’ve had the honour of interviewing top textile artists in the space, including Lyric Kinard, Pokey Bolton, Melanie Testa, Timna Tarr, Laura Wasilowski, Vivika Hansen Denegre, Kestrel Michaud, Maggie Vanderweit, and the list goes on…
And while all that sounds magical (which it is!) talking about textile art with the stars does not rub off by osmosis. Building my own creative practice was not a walk in the park. No one was like me. I didn’t fit the “quilting” mold. I always felt outside the box.
In fact, when I first started, I had no clue about the right tools, techniques or how to find inspiration. I wish someone had taught me what I know now over twenty years ago.
I’ve nailed down the key elements to building a successful art piece from start to finish and I want to share it with you in this creative BOOTCAMP to give you the start you deserve.
Here’s the truth, friend: If you want to build your own creative textile art practice YOU CAN! But you are going to have to get real about, well…FREE CREATIVE PLAY!
It doesn’t’ matter how many tools and supplies you buy or how much money you spend on courses.
If you don’t have the right tools, learn the right techniques, and then put your inspirations to use in free creative play then you ain’t going anywhere my friend.
1. The right TOOLS & SUPPLIES to get you started.
2. The TECHNIQUES to build your creative muscles.
3. How to find INSPIRATION and put those ideas to good use!
Once you have these 3 ingredients nailed you’ll have the foundation for free creative play and start your journey as a textile artist. So let’s do this!
“From discovering the techniques and processes you love to defining what makes you unique!”
By the end of our time together you’ll have explored your supplies, learned the basic elements of construction, and finished a textile art piece featuring your own original design. It’s time to start living the artist life!
Here’s What You Are Getting Inside The Bootcamp:
3 days of live training to take you from “WTF do I do first” to a finished piece of art.
Each day the Zoom link will be in your inbox. You can also interact with your fellow students in the Square One Facebook Group.
This BOOTCAMP is like a mini retreat just for you!
TRAINING 1: The Foundation - Cutting and Assembly
One of the biggest mistakes beginners make is buying every new supply that comes out and setting themselves up for overwhelm and disappointment by tucking it away and forgetting about it. I don’t think so!
On DAY 1 we will break down the wall of getting started to build the foundation of the art piece and the you will brainstorm your art challenge for DAY 2.
TRAINING 2: For Arts Sake - Your Original Textile Art Block
Another common mistake among newbies is that they feel they should be an expert in a day! On DAY 2 we will play, play, play to make the art until you have a piece that you love.
Making multiple samples will give you the choice to get your favourite result into your finished piece.
TRAINING 3: Finishing & Facing – Bring it Together!
Placing your art and adding the facing will give you that satisfying finish worthy of a Facebook Frenzy. We’ll post photos and share our work in the private Members Only Facebook Group.
Strut your stuff and be proud of what you’ve accomplished. You deserve it!
Oh wait…Did you think we were done? Not even close! Let’s talk about the 4 FREE bonuses you get! !

Here’s what some of our previous students say:
Have a burning question? Here’s what’s come up for other bootcampers:
Q: I've never tried textile art yet. Is this for me?
Q: Where is this bootcamp happening?
Q: Will this help me become a textile artist?
Q: What if I can’t make it live?
Q: Why is it so cheap to join?
If you’ve made it here… then it’s time to decide, friend.
Here’s the truth: nothing changes if nothing changes.
If you're sick and tired of trying and not getting results...
If you've ever thought "I thought I'd be further ahead by now"...
If you're fed up seeing others flourish as artists and just want someone to tell you what to do and how to do it...
Then straight up? You're falling behind if you're not in this bootcamp.
Because "winging it" and hoping it all works out is a surefire way to stay stuck and struggling. And you deserve better than that.
So.. you in?HECK YA! SIGN ME UP!
