"Dorie presents a very systematic, comprehensive course suitable for all levels of quilters to create beautiful mandalas. The lessons are well designed and fun.
She provides videos and diagrams of everything that is taught and is readily available to answer any questions. I have learned so much from Dorie and highly recommend this course!" Vivian L

"Dorie is very helpful and patient. As a previous, non current, club member, I sent a question to Dorie about a large mandala project I wanted to start. She texted me back quickly and then arranged a time to talk about it with me via zoom later. She is very willing to take time with people who have questions and needs. I also appreciate how methodical and easy to follow her online course materials and videos are. Things are easy to find and maneuver. And I’m grateful that after a year of full-time membership, her materials are still available for year-long use." --Connie B

Is there a schedule, you ask?
Registration will close on December 8th, 2023.
The Welcome ceremony will be on Dec 14th 2023, held live on Zoom at 2pm cst. This is when you will first meet all the club members that are joining for the Winter session.
Your first Club meeting will be on Thursday, January 11th 2024, at 2pm & 6pm cst. This meeting is held monthly, on the first Thursday of each month (except for Jan 2024 when it is the second week), and is open to all Club members, including the members who have completed the Quilted Mandala 12 month course (also referred to as GOLD members).
New lessons will be made available each week, beginning January 1st, 2024.
In the first 3 months of lessons, we will focus on ruler work within blocks and borders. These are skill builder lessons and designs that you will use inside and around Mandalas.
The next 3 months you will learn about the 3 basic styles of Mandalas. This will include Mandala designs from 12"-24’’ and smaller projects, like table runners with multiple Mandalas.
After 6 months of basic techniques, we will move on to Monthly projects that include larger Mandalas, layered Mandalas, more Grid designs, border designs & connecting designs.
The lessons will be available on the Forever Quilting Kajabi website, under a secure login. The lessons are pre-recorded and available for you to watch and re-watch. These videos will remain in your library for an additional year after the 12 month course is complete, or as long as you remain a member with Full Club Access.
This is a highly value added class. Everything is very professional from lesson design right through to the video presentation. It is the most valuable series of classes I have ever taken, in person or on-line. - Marla S

Quilted Mandala Club, a place where you can expand your knowledge of machine quilting and take your quilting to the next level.
When you join the QMClub you will learn so much more than how to create unique, one of a kind, Mandalas!
Because, let’s face it, quilting a Mandala will take many, many different skills!

"A few months back I joined the Quilting Mandala Club put on by Dorie Hruska. Dorie is an expert in her field of longarm quilting with years of experience in teaching. I have always admired her beautiful quilted Mandalas but never thought I could do it. So, when I saw the club announcement, I signed up immediately. I have learned so many new things and gotten much better on things I already knew. We have done extensive work on fillers and ruler work including crosshatch and curves. Even a beginner level quilter would be able to succeed. The cost is a fraction of what you would have to pay for in person 3-day weekend class. And the club format is great because the experience is ongoing. Dorie is so patient and is always available to help with anything I need. I look forward to every weekly lesson and our monthly meetings. You will love the club!" Maryanne M.

What this Club is not
It’s not a ‘’class’’, it’s a Club. With access to the club community AND new lessons every month.
The Lessons are not crammed into a 6 week course. There is plenty of time allotted for you to work through each technique.
It's not just for the Longarm machine quilter. These techniques and designs can be done on a domestic or sit-down longarm machine also. This has been proven over and over, by many of the previous Club members.
You are not working through the lessons alone. You have access to a teacher, that you can contact with all your questions. And not for just 3 months but for as long as you remain a member of the Club. Dorie is there to help you along the way. Plus you have the support and encouragement of the other Club members through the private Facebook group and monthly meetings.
It's not just for the experienced quilter. The lessons will cover all the tips and tricks the beginner machine quilter will need to know, while challenging the more experienced quilter to expand their skills.
"I have been in this club since Dorie started it in 2020. She is a patient, methodical instructor, giving clear, concise directions every step of the way. Even if you aren’t obsessed with mandalas, you will learn many new designs, learn how to have better consistency in your design formation, and you’ll go at your own pace. Quilting circles can be challenging but Dorie breaks it down so that you will soon have the confidence to tackle designs that would have intimidated you beforehand. I am a very happy student, as you can probably tell." Mary S
