Program: Sewing and quilting has been a part of my life for many years….although my long-arm business only began late in 1997. As long as I can remember, I have collected and created in all matter of media. My parents provided a great support for me in my creative endeavors…our whole family always making something…whether it was a mess, or building a house!! I graduated from Michigan State in 1964 with a degree in art. As an art teacher in California, my interest in quilting began in the 60’s, and in the early 90’s, when my sister introduced me to rotary cutters and mats, I knew I had found a great way to create art with fabric and thread.
I love wildly colorful quilts and using humor whenever possible, which is most of the time. Getting students to see that quilting should be fun and creative, freeing them from obsessive perfection, and just encouraging them to “play” gives most quilters a view of this art form that many have been afraid to see. That is why I try to make my classes a supportive, stress-free, and creative environment.
