I am happy to work with your guild or business to create a workshop that suits your needs and interests. My workshops do not require previous experience, but of course, some experience provides a great foundation. I welcome students of all skill levels and abilities.

I have a degree in fine art which allows me to draw from my knowledge of the principles of art when teaching. I have been sewing since I was ten but I didn't discover art quilts until 1995. These twenty years have been spent experimenting and playing with technique and creating a voice for my art. Let me share some of that knowledge with you in my workshops.
