Workshops & Speaking Engagements

I’m happy to arrange a class for interested groups. I also teach private lessons at my studio and am available for speaking engagements.

My most popular workshops are one-day classes.  Students get enough basic knowledge to go home and complete or practice what they’ve learned.  I also do multi-day retreats that give quilters an opportunity to progress their skills and learn from others in a friendly setting.

 Please visit my Facebook page to find the details of all scheduled upcoming classes.
