JOIN MEANDER
 

EXPLORE

Explore quilt styles and techniques from all over the world, and learn how to mix and match them to develop your own unique and distinctive style. 

LEARN

Learn all about color so you can confidently choose your own fabric palettes from your stash-- no more relying on kits!

CONNECT

Connect with quilters from all over the world as we go on this journey together.

Included with Meander

I've also designed Meander very intentionally to guide you through your Artist's Journey. There is structure and a clear path, but also a lot of room to explore what's inspiring you.

Workshops

Each month, we "travel" to a different part of the world & learn the quilt style that evolved there + the specific techniques that accompany that style!

Color Curriculum

Dive into a full color curriculum with a new class added each month! Master both the Art & Science of Color and pull fabrics with confidence and ease. 

Block of the Month

Explore a bunch of fun styles easily with our new Block of the Month Program! Choose from a 6, 9, or 12 block project. Get ready for your most creative year yet!

Pattern + Tutorial Library

A growing Pattern Library, each includes a small ("experiment") version, so you can try out the style quickly + Sewing Tutorial Library!

International Teachers

Meander was created by International speaker/teacher Shannon Brinkley. Shannon is the author of the book Scrappy Bits Applique as well as a quilt and fabric designer. A former elementary teacher, Shannon is able to break down all of the content so it is super simple to digest and quick to implement! She is known world-wide for her unique quilt-making style, and is excited to help you grow your own.

Guest Teachers

In addition to learning from Shannon, you'll also be learning from other talented and creative International and National Teachers. Here are a few recent teachers:

Giuseppe Riboudo

English Paper Piecing

Karlee Porter

Grafitti Quilting

Karen Eckmeier

Landscape Quilts

Debbie Grifka

Bias Tape Applique

Just a few of our Workshops

We add a new workshop every month. As a member of Meander, you have access to all past workshops as well!

"This group goes beyond the standard quilting techniques to challenge you in ways you may never have imagined. It pushes you out of your comfort zone and encourages experimentation. I love everything about it."

Juliet A

"More than your average guild! Technique, theory, history, and fun all wrapped up in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. I wait anxiously each week to see what comes next!"

Beth L

"It teaches things NO ONE else teaches and combines practical and artistic ideas PERFECTLY!"

Cynthia C

"The best $14 you will spend all month!"

Nancy M

"Binge watching Meander while sewing is way more inspiring and relevant than Netflix!"

Jacqueline P

"Join! You won’t be sad you did, Shannon brings so much information and content you will find something to try and a new technique to learn even if you are a well seasoned quilter!"

Hayle M

"It's better than a crafty class. Shannon is a clear, thoughtful and engaging teacher. I am taking the traditional styles, techniques, and color theory and mashing them into something uniquely mine."

I totally understand! I designed Meander just for you.

All the workshops get right to the point, no added fluff, so you can learn what you need quickly. All the patterns include an "experiment" version so you can try out most of the style/technique in under 2 hours.

You can devote as much or as little time each month as you'd like. If you have a bunch of unfinished projects right now, you can start by watching the Color Classes while you finish those works in progress!

I keep the materials requirements SUPER simple, so you likely already own everything you need for most projects, and I let you know what you can substitute for any items you might not have. I want to show you how to use what you already own to make something new. 

Join Meander

Enrollment for Meander reopens soon! Get on the waitlist to hear when doors open. You'll also get a great color mini-training as a thank you!

Have a question? Just shoot us an email and we'll be happy to help! hello@shannon-brinkley.com
