I have been quilting for over 30 years and love to do art quilts, teach how to create art quilts using the Laura Heine method, foundation paper piecing, and also how to create memory quilts.

Looking for a Speaker or a Teacher?

I have been teaching quilting for 2 years now.  I come from a technical computer background and used to teach people how to use their computers and various software packages.  I also taught scrapbooking classes for over 15 years. Now I've turned my quilting and memory preservation passion into creating memory quilts for other people and teaching people how to make their own.
