    I took a Stack n Whack class at the LQS shortly after buying my machine there. It was the most unorganized event! I had registered by phone and wasn't told everything that I needed for the class so of course, I show up with just a little fabric and my machine. Had to purchase the rest of the needed fabric. They didn't have enough of the books for us to buy (didn't tell me we needed one prior to the class) and didn't have the templates made. One lady taking the class monopolized the class with her drama and seeming endless requirement for the instructor. I didn't even go back for the 2nd class, taught my self the technique and refuse to purchase anything else from this LQS. I had gone back in a couple of times after the class to purchase fabric but the customer service was so poor. . .

    I took a folded star ornament class, and 3 FMQ classes on the longarm. They were good, but I prefer to work at home at my own speed. I can usually follow the patterns and do better on my own.

    I've really learned more from this board than any class I've taken. I've taken a beginning class and a PP class a long time ago.

    Nobody famous, but they should be! I took several FMQ classes with the same excellent instructor. This is one skill that a 'real' class makes such a big difference. I also took a machine applique class where 4 or 5 DIFFERENT techniques were taught. really great. Showed us every which way to do it, explained which technique would work with different situations. Love having different options. Again, excellent local instructor.
    edited to add: With a local instructor the class sizes are really small, 4-6 around here, so you really get instructor attention.

    8-week quilting class which used the "Machine Quilting Made Easy" book by Maureen Noble. Took some of the fear out of it.

    Also took a Fabric Folding class. Didn't like it at the time, but it made a perfect center for my Round Robin.

    Then I took a Crayon class a while ago. That was fun for my inner 6-year-old. Next I plan to take an embroidery class even though I don't know why.
