Welcome to the Thursday Club!

April brings us not 1 but 2 Lessons! Our first with guest teacher Cheryl Arkison is coming up soon! I invite you to join us for "Make Waves" Thursday, April 4 @ 12:00 pm PT, and "Painted Eggs" with {me!} Marisa Cummings Thursday, April 11 @ 3 pm PT. Remember If you can't join live, no worries. You will get a replay video recording of the Lesson, and as a Thursday Club Member you get access to ALL Creative Lessons past and future.

The Inspiration behind The Thursday Club: As a working artist and teacher, with a growing business and personal demands, who wants to get back to regular creating...I was thinking...

Wouldn't it be great to go from feeling overwhelmed + depleted, to carefree + creative, as you experience the fulfillment that comes from taking time for your creativity while learning and exploring alongside an encouraging and supportive community of kindred spirits?

This is the reason why I started the Thursday Club: To bring more energy and joy to your every day through a regular practice of creativity.

And it's also the BEST reason why I get to bring you a new LIVE lesson every month with inspiring and encouraging guest teachers, like modern quilter and author Cheryl Arkison.


April's Guest Teacher Lesson

Thursday April 4, 12 pm PT

"Make Waves" with Cheryl Arkison.  Join us for our LIVE lesson @ 12 pm PT  This is the very first time Cheryl is making this workshop available live and online. You won't want to miss it!

Thursday Club this month takes on sewing. Quilt making is a magical process. And a process it is. If we wanted a finished quilt we can go to the mall and buy one. It really is about the act of making instead. This particular block embraces improv piecing, some gentle curves, and colour play. Make 1 or make 100! But make every day. It doesn’t matter if you make a whole quilt or a single block.

 Class will cover the basics of picking fabric, cutting for the block, sewing, pressing, and a finishing the block. We will also discuss how to turn a single block into a single miniature quilt. The concept is adaptable for more and more blocks.

 "And oh, the fabric! Bits of woven beauty inspiring us to cut it up only to sew it back together again" ~ Cheryl

Back when I started quilting it was practically unheard of for a 23 year old to do so, but there I was. Now, 20 years later I haven’t stopped. In addition to my own creative work, mostly in improvisational piecing, I love to teach, write books and articles, spread the gospel of improv, and design quilts. Every now and then I make a garment, my Grade 8 Home Ec Teacher would be proud. ~ Cheryl

Cheryl and I first met online 12 years ago. A student of mine in the early days of my business for artists teaching, I've had the privilege of watching Cheryl take her love of modern quilting and transform it into to 3 beautiful, heartfelt books, countless gorgeous quilts and workshops taught all over the world.  Cheryl brings her passion for color, fabric, sewing and daily creating {famous for her Morning Make practice} to everything she creates. If you don't yet know her, or you've been following her for years, you will love learning from Cheryl.  ~  Marisa

"Thank you for the inspiration, the process, the tips, your good humor and great stories. You really are a terrific teacher, you empowered us"

So tell me more about The Thursday Club

You want to be more CREATIVE! You want the time do more of what's most meaningful to you in your life.

Yup that's me!

But you feel like you can't find the time?

You wish you had more encouragement and support, especially on the days when that little voice of self doubt tries to creep in telling you "you're not creative", and questions your talent and abilities to try something new. {how dare it!}

And yet you know how fulfilled you feel when you put those doubts aside, and take the time to make something {and even better, finish a project!}

You know that having a supportive group of creative friends could inspire you and keep you on track, yet you feel more introverted and you'd really rather not leave your house.

You'd love to learn new techniques to get those creative juices flowing again, but you don't have the time to jump into a bunch of courses or figure out who you want to learn from and you'd also really rather not haul your supplies everywhere

You wish you had a consistent way to kickstart your inspiration and keep your creative motivation going, that feels easy and fun {not one more thing on your to do list}

You might also be a successful Creative Entrepreneur, yet now your business demands so much of your time you hardly have a moment to breathe, let alone find the inspiration to create something new.

It really makes you happy to make art for you.

And you love the synergy that happens when you are with a group of kindred spirits and CREATE together!

What if

You had a regular creative date, with a wonderful group of supportive friends, and fantastic teachers sharing new techniques and projects with you, and you didn't have to leave your house, or haul all of your art supplies with you? What if the joy you feel from tapping into your creativity more often, makes you happier every day. What if the momentum of feeling more inspired encourages you to do amazing things you've never tried before? What if your life just gets better and better simply because you made time for what is most meaningful to you. I know it's possible because this is how it happened for me, and this is precisely why I feel so passionate about bringing you The Thursday Club.

"I am loving Marisa's community so much. I've had some shifts already! I'm painting up a storm. And I've had a big shift around the whole teaching possibility. I am starting to feel out what aspect of art-making really calls to me, what would I want to delve into and share with other artists in the form of a little online course. And this is coming from a place of inspiration and excitement. I'm amazed that I'm even typing all of this!"
