What Our Students Are Saying About MK Quilts University

“This has become my go to site for my quilting needs. Love the university! MK is a wonderful instructor... very clear and articulate. ”

Denise Wright

“Ellen, you are brilliant with combining ruler, PS, and free motion! You've blown my mind. I learned so much from you in this class, and I'm definitely going to watch again and do my practice, can't wait. Your teaching style is so fun, feels like I'm in studio right at your side. Thank you especially for your conversational way of thinking out loud, showing how to play and figure stuff out.”

Linda D

“If I did not have MKQU I would not have access to any consistent learning. ”

Jeannie Horton

“MK has been exactly the type of instruction I have been seeking. Online, time-saving, affordable and content specific. I don’t have time to go to classes and give up precious weekend time since I still work. I love it♥️ I started in March and learned more than I have in years. ”

Peggy Carmack

“I really like how you explain things in PS and PSD as they arise in a project.”

Gretchen Krasoski

“You are providing such a valuable service to this industry. I appreciate your willingness to share all of the tips that you have worked so hard to perfect. I wish I had known about you earlier so that I could have purchased my Amara, frame and PSP from you and signed up for MKQU from the very beginning. But so glad I did find you eventually. ”

Kelli Reinmuth

“You have increased my quilting ability 100%. Now when I watch the videos I am looking for a tip or something I missed earlier. Keep up doing what you do.”

Mary Warfield

“You guys are wonderful......the learning curve is high but having the classes available to watch again is a life saver. Many of us are doing this for personal use so a lot can be forgotten in the time between quilts. Melissa has a way of encouraging us, pushing us forward, but never belittles the place we may be with our progress. ”

Gay Losher

“Have enjoyed and learned a lot from the University site! ”

Jan Wheeler

“I honestly don't know where I'd be if I hadn't found you. I find your training exceptional and Paul's involvement with the IT is reassuring. You are professional, always positive, and have a true desire to share what you love. ”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the difference between a membership bundle and individual courses?

    All of our courses can be purchased individually for a basic course fee. To purchase individual courses, just click on the course title and then click on the price to checkout and make payment.

  • Once I've subscribed to a membership bundle, will my price ever go up?

    No, your monthly subscription rate will be locked in to the price you pay at enrollment. As long as you stay enrolled in a membership bundle, your price will not go up. Owners who purchased their longarm and Pro-Stitcher from MK Quilts and received free membership in the appropriate bundle will be locked into that bundle price at the time of enrollment.

  • Can I change my membership from one bundle to another?

    Yes, while you are able to switch from one bundle to another, there are limitations - so please consider your move carefully. You must first cancel your membership to the bundle you no longer want and then purchase the bundle you wish to be enrolled in. Please note that you will gain immediate access to the courses in the new bundle while remaining enrolled in the cancelled bundle for the remainder of the billing period. If you choose to re-enroll in a previous bundle at any time, please be aware that you will be charged the current bundle price at the time of re-enrollment.
