Hi, my name is Martha (Penner) Novacek, If you are looking for a fulfilling de-stressing hobby, yet totally cost efficient, then my easy simple 7 step instructional quilting course may be just what you are looking for. Your family and friends will cherish YOUR handmade, homemade quilts for many years to come. I grew up quilting and almost 30 years later I still have a passion for it!

Coming from a German Mennonite heritage, the women in my culture all learned to sew and quilt at a young age as a way of life. However, I've set up the instructional videos so anyone at any age can do it!

Hi Martha, I thought you would like to see my first attempt at a quilt, using your guidance.  It is a present for my daughter's 21st.

...I am delighted, your instructions were so easy to follow and you gave me some good tips - especially chain sewing the squares & making the triangles.

My eldest daughter now wants a quilt as a wedding present - here we go again, at least I don't have do make it in secret this time! Regards, Cally

I hope you like it!

In that culture we were very frugal.  I teach you how to use what you have and get by with the simplest of supplies. A while back, I made a twin size quilt from scraps in a box my sister picked up by the street curb for free.

My husband thinks it's not the most eye pleasing quilt, but when I told him why I cherish the quilt and enjoy looking at it, he looked at it differently too. I cherish it so much because every time I look at it, I feel the satisfaction of having taken fabric that was junk to someone else, and I made a cherished quilt, and very useful blanket!

Learn in the comforts and privacy of your own home, or even when traveling.  Go at your own pace watching videos, which is much easier than trying to learn from an e-book.

Forget about sifting through countless YouTube videos, or dealing with frustrating advertisments. Enjoy commercial free quilting! Rest assured you are learning from an experienced quilter. Making quilts has been my business for the last 10+ years as Custom Care Quilts, both locally and online.

Doubtful you can learn from my instruction? Don't think you can do it? Just ask Jayel, a 13 year old whose already made 4 quilts using my course! She's given some of them away as gifts for babies and the mothers are just flattered by what she's made for them!

With my video course you'll be able to review as many times as you like with the very affordable, one-time payment for a life-time, ONLINE membership.

Most Steps are Repeated Twice!

There are lots of close ups, and most steps are repeated twice, so if you didn't get it the first time, you will usually see it demonstrated again. Each step is CLEAR, saving you from any frustration or uncertainty, ambiguity, or confusion.

You will be able to spend more time actually quilting than trying to understand. Many steps are also videoed from different perspectives, from the front, the side, or even from the bottom, to accelerate your learning.  So you comprehend quicker.

Do You Give Gifts Anyone Can Give?

What about making home-made, unique gifts? You'll enjoy the pleasure of seeing your quilt you gave your niece or grandchild becoming their most treasured possession. Enjoy the "ooh's" and "aah's" from your new quilting talent.  At bridal or baby showers, get the most excitement and exclamations from your personalized quilt.  Be remembered for your loving, hand-made gifts.

Hi Martha, I live in New Zealand and purchased your online quilting program a few months ago. I had just started quilting and did not know a thing about it. I have always been a sewer, needle pointer, scrapbooker and I paint as well but quilting was new.

After looking at books and talking to others I was nearly put off the whole idea until I came across your class.

I found your approach and instructions amazing and particularly liked your "don't worry if it is not perfect approach very refreshing".

I have since made five small quilts including two from your class and I am now starting on needle turn applique.

I would like to thank you most sincerely for your help in letting me know that it is ok to follow your heart when quilting.

...here are the photos of the quilts. As you can see most of them are still being quilted or bound.The little one with the round balls is an attempt at an art quilt, I painted the background.

I am not sure that I like the paint with the cloth but it was an experiment. As you can see I like colour and my hand quilting is more like sashiko.

The quilt with all the flower baskets is my needle turn quilt and it is my favourite. You will probably laugh at my method of putting all the tops together then having a heap of hand sewing but I do the hand sewing in my lap when I am watching TV at night.

Your class was the beginning of all this and even though I have developed a funny way of quilting I am having a wonderful time. Thank you again and I will be checking in at your website frequently.

Cheers Meryle


I gave a baby quilt to my niece when she was about one year old, and till this day, as a five year old, she plays with that quilt with her dolls and cuddles with it as with a teddy bear, and takes it wherever she goes. How special I feel that something I made for her has become such a prized possession to her!

Handmade Gifts are Always the Most Prized and Loved

Who made this quilt for you? "Aunty Marta".  Other gifts might lose importance or they'll forget who gave what, but your handmade quilt will always be special and they won't forget who made it.

Recently I was in a clinic waiting and working on an appliquéd quilt block to go in a quilt for my niece, and a lady struck up a conversation with me, saying that when her son grew up, she got rid of all his baby items, except for all the handmade items.

She kept and treasured what was handmade.

I Feel the Embrace of Your Love

Another quilting friend of mine told me of how some ladies at her church had made a quilt for a friend who was dying of cancer. While making the quilt, they prayed a lot for their friend and all her family.

Their friend past away before they finished the quilt, so after they completed the quilt, they presented it to their friend's husband and told him about all their prayers while making the quilt.

The husband was very much cherished and later declared that whenever he would feel lonely and really miss his wife, he would wrap himself in this quilt and just feel comforted and surrounded by the love and prayers of these women who had made the quilt.

Send your love and lots of hugs in the form of a quilt made with loving care for your family who lives far from you.

Plus, we are leaving a legacy of quilting, and heirlooms that will be treasured for years to come.

We make Learning Affordable!  

You don't need expensive, digital read-out sewing machines, long arms, etc.. You just need some basic supplies and you're ready to get started! Forget the expensive high-tech sewing gadgets because they are only going to confuse you!

Stick to the basics first, starting out frugally… And, later on you can think about the expensive toys! My 36 stitch-by-stitch video tutorials are short, clear, and easy to follow, even for beginners.

Compared to E-books

Who really wants to learn hard stuff from a book anymore? Or a .pdf E-book? We don't. That's why we created an online video course to visually walk you through the quilt making process. There's no guess work when we guide you through each new step that you encounter.

Video is THE fastest way to learn, simply "watch and follow", over and over again, until you understand it for yourself.
