I’m a lifelong sewist who had to figure most of it out by myself.

I love the challenge of taking complicated things and making them simple.  Teaching quilting combines my passion for fabric and design with the joy of seeing you succeed at something new.

It’s more than quilting, it’s showing you that you are capable of creating beautiful things.
