Text or message me about your ideas and I'll begin the dialogue to hone in on your quilting, longarm, or educational needs! No project too small to discuss, even if it's how to thread your serger or read a pattern! I have completed commissioned quilt projects, produced award winning quilts, taught students aged 8-80, and made over 50 memory quilts for customers. My training is in traditional quilt block construction, but I have ventured into modern quilting construction as well. With modern technology, I can work with customers remotely on custom quilts.

Areas I've explored include: foundation paper piecing, English Paper Piecing, applique, embroidery, longarm quilting, digitized quilting, traditional piecing, art collage, improvisational modern.
I also have experience teaching art collage quilting classes, traditional piecing quilting classes, foundation paper-piecing classes, longarm quilting skills, rulerwork on both domestic machines or longarm, and serger sewing classes.
Students range from ages 8 - 80. I can teach 1-on-1 or a Buddy class with 3 or more students. Kids Craft Parties are unique and tailored to your group.
I usually have multiple projects in progress. Currently I'm working on:

Inspired by my mother Carolyn who let me use her Necchi machine to make stuffed animals as a child and my father's nanny Dollie who let me pump the treadle on her Singer while she quilted, I strive to explore and master every facet of quilting and sewing. If I want to learn how something is made, I take it apart, research, watch videos and enroll in classes.
I employ a fleet of Bernina machines, including a Q24 longarm with digitized Qmatic software and a Q20 longarm for free-motion quilting. My preferred materials are high-quality quilting cotton, Quilter's Dream batting and Glide thread. I've been quilting for the public since 2016, completing over 50 memory quilts for customers and hundreds of longarm jobs.
Do you have a question about my longarm quilting, quilting classes or sewing classes? Send me a message, or give me a call. I'll get back to you soon!
