I first found my love of sewing on a treadle machine, using a phone book to be able to reach the pedal. I pull from years of experience: from making my own school clothing by third grade, working in a jacket factory, a restaurant owner, computer programmer, accountant and now longarm quilter to combine techniques that apply across that experience to identify and solve problems (sometimes with some McGuyvering!) and increase your productivity. In all my classes, the goal is to give you an advantage: consistently square quilts, attaching binding using the longarm, shortening your learning curve on pantos and rulers, and avoiding problems in quilt tops and backs in preparation for longarming. I LOVE my job and I hope that you catch that excitement from me as you learn the tricks of the trade.
