My lecture “Finding Your Passion and Running With It” includes a large trunk show of my quilts when the event is in driving distance.

My second lecture which follows and builds on my first lecture called  “Cre-a-tiv-i-ty”which one to choose?   If I have spoken with your guild already, this is the perfect lecture for a return visit as it continues to build on my first lecture.

My third lecture is so amazing, “An Insiders Look into the Textile Industry” it’s all about the fabric industry,  highlighting Hoffman Fabrics.  As some fo you know, I have been their Ambassador, working with the family, designing patterns, handling the challenges and providing insider tours.

I offer a variety of classes for all skill levels and many classes can complete their projects in one day, which builds confidence!  List of classes available for you to  review 

I look forward to sharing my Passion for Quilting with you.

Biography

Art has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. I remember always being intrigued and absorbed with making things. My mother encouraged my exploration of all things creative and my life-long creative journey took off including painting, sewing, photography, ceramics, embroidery, gardening just to name a few.

My style, my passion, my energy is boundless… I love discovering, I love looking, I love seeing, I love the way others see, and I love doing!

I don’t worry about doing it wrong…. There is no such thing in the creative process. I like how Albert Einstein said, “The easiest way to be creative: try something different, even if you don’t think it will work.”

I look forward to sharing my story, work and passion with you.
