In my week, we will be learning about textile painting techniques in my Morning Glory class.  It’s been one of my most popular classes, and I’ve created a new video showing me actually painting on a sample.  So here’s your opportunity to take this class and have it forever!  And all the other classes by these fabulous artists to for one low price.

Here’s another sneak peak:

Posh, Pet Portraits

If you have ever thought of working with me, here is a rare opportunity to work with me in person! I am teaching at Bernina World of Sewing, Raleigh, NC, !   Some of you will remember a while back, I detailed the making of my posh pet, Huey, my kitten.  You can read about it here.

I still have 2  1 spot left, but this class will be full soon! This is a 2 day class, on two Saturdays (Feb. 13 & 27).  The  two weeks in between will give you time to work on your project.   The cool thing about this class is not only will you get a fab portrait of your pet, but you will also get tips on free motion quilting while you work on your project.  And the same techniques can be used to create other art quilts such as landscapes, seascapes, buildings, flowers, people, etc.  You can bring your own machine to class or use a class machine ( a nice BERNINA 350!)  Also, you get 10% off your class supplies at the store.  So if you are local, don’t wait to register, space is very limited.  Call 919-782-2945 to register.  Better yet, do it with a friend!



The Needle Felting Flower video IS ready.  So if you haven’t seen it and want to get your free pattern- just email me and I’ll send it your way.  See below.






New 6 month Private Coaching Masterclass!

 I have extended my private coaching program, from 3 months to 6 months.  I believe the transformation my students are looking for must take place over a longer period of time to have a lasting impact.

I want you to make the most amazing, original art quilts that you can.  That is why I am now accepting private students who are serious about their creative expression in the world of art quilting.  Take advantage of my 17+ years as a textile artist, and speed up your learning curve. To work with me privately, please set up your initial, no obligation,  free Get Creative Call here: Schedule Appointment You can find out more by clicking on the Testimonials and Private Coaching tabs to the right in the sidebar or at the menu at the top.
