Lectures/Workshops

Zoom workshops or lectures are not available due to slow-speed internet issues in the rural area in which I live.

LECTURES

I offer informative and entertaining hour-long presentations for quilt guilds or other events. Lectures are a combination of slides and actual quilts. More information about the presentations and fees.  Contact me for teaching availability.

Workshops

I enjoy the opportunity of meeting new quilters and sharing my quiltmaking techniques. My classes are project-oriented — which means in class, you’ll learn a technique that can be applied toward making your own quilt — instead of ending the day with just a technique practice sample! Supply lists are provided for each workshop and most workshops include a cutting list so you can make the most of class time. All workshops require a sewing machine and are adaptable to all skill levels. More information about teaching and fees. Contact me for teaching availability.
