I am a free motion quilter with a passion for teaching, giving quilters permission and the knowledge to do the quilting they want to do is the goal. I started machine quilting in 2006 after working on a hand quilting project for several years, deciding one afternoon that I was just done! Learning how to pair needles and thread, adjust tension (machine and me), and play made all the difference.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on classes and speaking engagements.
Sitting at the machine messing with fabric, thread, batting, and time is the highlight of my day.
I have a pattern in the upcoming Modern Patchwork magazine featuring Melanie Testa’s newest fabric line Florabunda. I’ve written for several publications including Generation Q Magazine and Quilting Arts. I am currently working on a book with C&T Publishing due out in Spring 2020. I’ve taught with American Quilter’s Society, Quilts, Inc. (Houston), Road to California, as well as Quilt Guilds and Quilt Shops.
In October 2017 I was the Featured Speaker at the Dutchess Heritage Quilt Show.
She is the Community Editor (talent scout) and blogger for Generation Q Magazine. My work has appeared in Quilting Arts, Machine Quilting Unlimited, Generation Q Magazine and two books by author Mary W Kerr
