The Gap

I am here to bridge the gap many "launch that course" experts miss: the course! Without a well-designed course, it's difficult to create impact and revenue.


Let's expand on how you can take an idea for a workshop or course, design the curriculum and presentation for it, and then execute the course. If you've been waiting for months or years, stuck and not teaching, it's time to take action.

Tori lays out a well thought out and organised introduction to creating your course, which helps you to learn to do the same for your students. The information about how different types of students learn was fascinating and helped me to see areas where I could improve my students experience. The forms included in this class and her eagerness to offer real world ideas will only enhance your future class offerings.

This class is a great way to learn how to create an entire curriculum. I really loved taking this class from you. You were an excellent teacher.

If you want to learn how to easily create a class/course please enroll. Tori clearly shows how to do that from start to finish. She shares soooo much information. I started this class knowing nothing about designing a course/class but with Tori's guidance I now feel like I can confidently do so.

I Wanted a Better Way...

My name is Tori McElwain

In 2018, I was a new mom and a burned-out teacher. We were getting ready for our 5th move with our then 3-month-old baby boy and I was researching teaching certifications in the states we would most likely be stationed. It was disheartening. As a mom, an Active Duty Military Spouse, and a teacher I wanted a better way to provide for my family, so I could actually be present for, and easily move with, my family.

I start making quilts, then selling quilt patterns and teaching! I always find myself being drawn back to teaching. I've been a Quilting Instructor for 4 years in a variety of formats: online live, recorded digital courses, in-person workshops, and traveling nationally to present to Quilt Guilds on stage. I saw a gap in the creative world where many creatives make beautiful things and want to teach it, to create impact in their creative community, a but are stuck on the how. I want to fill that gap with the Quilt Patch Course Academy.




Darla was a quilter who had been quilting on her longarm for 15 years. Retirement was coming quickly  and she was looking for a way to create supplemental income for herself and her husband. She also wanted to create an impact and stay involved in her community. When she came across the quilting courses that Tori was teaching, it sparked an idea! She had so many people asking her to teach them how to free motion quilt, but no room in her sewing room. Could she create an online workshop?

With the guidance of the Quilt Patch Course Academy's framework, feedback and a few Strategy Sessions, Darla Hall now has her own set of Free Motion Quilting workshops that are organized and easily repeatable. Her first launch of her organic free motion series had 6 students, generating an extra $1,600 revenue! Darla has since launched her own website, been booked by several Quilt Guilds, and has welcomed new long-arming customers!
