You can reach your goals for 2022 through creative mindfulness!

Creative mindfulness for personal growth

Creativity for personal growth and joy

The past years have been chaotic for everyone. There is so much stress, division and overstimulation in the world. Creative mindfulness will get you back on your own track.

Creativity is a way to separate yourself from the chaos of the world and focus on your own wellbeing. Also, it gives you confidence to keep focus on your path. 

I propose mindful quilting as creative practise. 

What mindful quilting can offer you

Quilting has helped me to keep sane for the past 10 years. The confidence and satisfaction I get from making beautiful quilted objects with my own has given me tremendous joy. Also, by using second-hand fabrics and old clothes, mindful quilting also contributes to a better world. To me, any effective mindfulness practise also needs to be good for the planet.

Are you ready to allow yourself a mindful and joyous 2022? Are you ready to say goodbye to always feeling overwhelmed, anxious and like life is running you instead of the other way around? Do you have one goal you want to reach in 2022? Take control back of your life with the magic of mindful quilting

  • Time for yourself to focus on your wellbeing, and get clarity on your career and goals in life.
  • Mindful quilting is sustainable quilting.
  • Confidence to follow your own path in life and to reach your goals.
  • Space for personal growth and development.

  • A way to repurpose beloved garments and old fabrics and contribute to a sustainable future.
  • A sustainable hobby to do with your friends

People who have discovered the magic of quilting

I like Quilt College because I didn't need to buy any specialist equipment and emphasis was on enjoying making something, rather than making something perfect.

Creating a quilt had seemed like a large and difficult task, but following this course helped me. After completing each lesson, I feel like I can tackle a larger quilt project on my own.

I have just made my first quilt thanks to the easy-to-follow instructions and videos. Who knew fabric scraps could be so useful and no waste. I have a new hobby, that’s for sure.

What is in the Mindful Quilting 2022 Kick Off Bundle?

1. Learn the basics of quilting with a small project

Study all techniques to create a quilt in one class.

The magic of quilting is turning fabric scraps into something beautiful. You can turn the scraps into a blanket, bag, coaster, coat, and anything else you can imagine! With the beginner class, you learn the basic quilt techniques you need by making a mini-quilt coaster.

The lessons are with text & video on-demand and divided in small parts to fit in any busy schedule. 30 minutes of quilting a day by hand or machine is perfect to finish your mini-quilt in 1-2 weeks. After that, you can apply the quilt techniques to make your own laptop sleeve.

2. Sustainable quilting: to reuse clothes and fabrics

Use your old clothes for the quilts

Recycling old clothes and fabric leftovers has always been the tradition in quilting. This is an age-old method of sustainable living. In the quilt class, you learn how to repurpose fabrics into quilts too! This is not only sustainable, but also makes every quilt unique.  

Every year, tons of usable textiles end up in landfills. Also, tons of new textiles are produced for quilting. By quilting sustainably, fabric gets a second life, which diminishes the need to produce new materials. Mindful Quilting is good for the planet in 2 separate ways!

3. Unlock the magic of mindful quilting

Quilting as tool for peace and joy in your life

Quilting as daily practise helps you to separate yourself from the chaos and business of daily life. Working with your hand decreases stress, which allows you to get clarity on your goals and ambitions in life and your wellness. Creativity expands your horizon and gives new ideas.

Practices creative mindfulness for 30 minutes a day turns that moment into an anchor in your life. With practice, it becomes easier and easier to de-stress, find your purpose in life, and enjoy the daily moments for yourself to be creative.

4. Community to support each other in Mindful Quilting 

Grow within a community of like-minded people

Personal growth through mindfulness works best within a save community. We all have days things work better than other days. With a group of people around you, you get the motivation to pick up the needle every day.

Daily quilting is something you can do with your friends, family, or with new friends you will meet in the online community. The most important part is to feel inspired in your quilting projects and mindfulness practices. I am here to help you blossom as a quilter and to reach your goals.

The lessons exude enthusiasm! They clearly follow a mission of embracing sustainability and mindfulness. It has been great fun to collect old clothes from family and friends, to mix and match the fabric pieces, and create something new from them.

Since I am not very skilled at sewing yet, it is great to find that the lessons provide step-by-step details (using video, text and images) for hand sewing and machine sewing. I am currently travelling and took with me fabric scraps, a needle and thread: I'm happy to continue learning this craft and being creative wherever.
