Quilting Instructor, Fiber Artist, Geek

Classes, Workshops and Lectures

Every class begins with the reminder: "Quilting is your hobby – it should not stress you out!"

Everyone learns at a different pace and in different ways. I keep my classes small to allow students to work at their own pace, and each student gets personalized attention when she needs it. I bring samples to illustrate each step in the process.
