Personalized Workshop


Are you a shop or guild?  Want a workshop, but don't see what you're looking for?  I can personalize a workshop especially for you.  The class can be focused around one of my patterns (from my pattern shop, or from one of my projects featured in a quilt magazine) or a technique featured in one of my projects.  What could be better than that?


Dutch Windmills

Create the illusion of complex curved piecing with this simple fusing technique. Learn how to place floating circles and halfwedges over apieced background so that you end with a quilt that has spin and movement without the difficulties of sewing curves. Use up to 20 different fabrics and make a lap quilt or a wall hanging that will impress anyone who will see it.

Other faux curve options: Double Dutch, Antique Circles, My Quilt Bubbles Over





Primitive Stitch Sampler

Love the look of primitive quilts?  Ready to go beyond the basic blanket stitch?  Want to learn to work with wool and embroidery?  Create a lovely sampler and learn 8 different stitch options.  I've done mine in wool on fabric (batik), but you can work with any combination of wool on fabric, or fabric on fabric to suit your tastes.  Psst.....this isn't just for primitive sttchery!  Traditional and modern quilts can be beautifully enhanced with stitchery as well!




Christmas Cactus 

Inspired by my Mother’s Christmas Cactus, which bloomed and brightened many awinter morning with its delicate flowers, this quilt mimics those flat stems and spiky blooms with delicate points, easy piecing and a unique angled border. Paper piecing makes all those points very “quilter friendly”. Easy enough for a beginner, beautiful enough to showcase those special fabrics, and just the right size to top a table or grace a wall, this project is a perfect way to say thanks to a friend, or to stitch up to brighten your day.  

Butterfly Bowls and Bracelets

Looking for something a little different?  Then let's create a charming butterfly bowl (choose from Pop Art or Take Wing) or combine a bit of fusing with some hand stitching and make a fun cuff bracelet.  All projects use Bosal's Heatable Moldable, which allows you to shape your finished project.  These can be no-sew projects, but they are also a great opportunity to play around with decorative stitching!
