I love teaching and passing on my knowledge. I have tutored on most traditional techniques and my personalisled machine applique and curved piecing methods. I especially enjoy showing new beginners the basics and watching them grow into great quilters, finding there own techniques they love to do. I tend to start simple and small and then progress into more challenging projects.

I have always loved to stitch whether it be traditional or arty. I also have experience in fabric dyeing and colour studies, soya wax resist and surface design and would be happy to discuss this also.

I have placed a deposit on a gammill longarm machine and look forward to advancing my free motion quilting.



See below for a class list.


Note: If you let me know your requirements I would be happy to tailor courses to suit any abilities.
