I've always loved to build, design and create things. Over the years I've excelled at woodworking and sewing. I have keep going back to sewing and over the last 10 years, I've enjoyed sharing my passion of sewing by teaching others how to quilt. I am moving forward with this passion by becoming Iowa's first Certified Instructor for Quiltworx - January 2018!
I continue to create custom designs, t-shirt quilts and long arm for others. Most recently in September 2017, I opened my training center/studio on our farm in Charles City, Iowa. This space allows for 9 students to have their own tables and design wall space. I also offer fabric designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, patterns by Quiltworx and paper piecing essentials. Custom kits are available - kits are created using Quiltster app.
I want to help you learn to sew. And if you don't sew, I'll do it for you!
Training Studio & Classes
Each class I schedule is, generally, at least two sessions.
I teach at other shops and venues, including guilds.
Schedule a retreat! Though we don't currently have beds, hotels and a lodge are not far away (7-10 minute drive). Choose the number of days and bring up to nine people total for a personal, custom retreat! Food can be included in the cost, or have you group take care of it!
Signed, returned contracts are required to reserve your date. I also have two machines available for rent for $5 per day.
