Teaching Quilting Classes

I’m a person who’s major fault lies in the fact that I love too many things.  Way too many things.  If you haven’t noticed, I like cooking, baking, gardening, quilting, a little sewing, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, teaching, working with youth, yoga, Pilate’s, reading & a thousand other things!

I recently took a break from one of those activities: teaching quilting.  I needed a rest.  I needed to find my creative juices again & rediscover my love of piecing, because I believe the best teachers are passionate teachers.

So I spent about a year in my studio, quilting away, finishing some UFOs, taking lots of classes & basically playing around- time well spent!

Then something happened & I realized I missed teaching the “hard” quilting skills.  About the same time, I met up with Jackie, owner of A Quilting Place.  Jackie has recently made an awesome addition to her business called Stashbusters, where you can sell quilting fabric by the pound & purchase new-to-you fabric for $4/yard! This is a great affordable way to create scrappy quilts!

Well, I’m super excited to announce that I’m going to be teaching some classes in her Stashbuster’s shop!

In June I’ll be teaching these 3 fun classes:
