Workshops

I love teaching! I love being able to share what I know about quilting with so many wonderful people—and I am grateful for the many things that I learn in return.

I have been quilting for 30 years and teaching for 25. While most people know me as an appliquer, I am also a piecer and I enjoy teaching both techniques equally. Listed below you will find classes for both.

Every class below is suitable for all skill levels. Patterns for the class block are provided.
