I am a hands-on teacher and work hard to ensure my students learn the skills and concepts presented.  I combine enthusiasm, encouragement and one-on-one attention so students receive a rich day of instruction.  Contact me directly for pricing and availability. (Please allow 6-8 hours for all workshops.) Below are current workshop projects I offer to guilds, quilt shops and conferences.
