Teaching

I started quilting in 1977 and have been teaching since 1987.

Expertise:

  • Innovative embellishments
  • Beginners
  • Hand Applique

Origin of classes:

I read and experiment extensively and my classes are a combination of excercises that I have put together using the work of various fibre artists.


Teaching philosophy:

I try to inspire students to get the greatest satisfaction from my classes and excercises and to encourage them to experiment further.
