Once I got started creating this course I couldn’t stop.  I had so much fun making all these home decor and clothing items.  I have lots more in the works but thought it might be best to simply offer what I have so far and add more videos later.  Lot’s of ideas for fall and winter coming!

Is this for me?
  • Are you a beginner?
  • Are you experienced but are curious about specific techniques?
  • Are you an aspiring handmade maker hoping to sell your work on Etsy?
  • Do you purchase multiple books and magazines, trying to find the inspiration to make your garments, home decor items and/or bags?
  • Do you invest a considerable amount of time and money searching for patterns and fabrics?
  • Do you have lots of trial and error dealing with design, color, and execution of your work?

If you answer “yes” to any of the above this course will work for you.

I’ve learned from excellent instructors and mentors over the years.
  • I have also received multiple awards from quilt competitions, art shows and craft shows.
  • I have sold my work through fine art and craft shows across the country and I know what speaks to people.
  • My work has been installed in institutions such as Epic Corporation in Madison, WI, and Milton Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA.
  • I’ve been published in magazines such as Machine Quilting Unlimited and Art Quilting Studio.
  • I made my daughter’s wedding dress, all the bridesmaid dresses and my dress for the event (see above video for photos)

What will this cost me?

Many people spend upwards from $30-$60 per class to learn to sew one item at a local fabric store or sewing machine store.
Many people hunt online for individual courses teaching specific techniques.  All these individual courses also cost $30-$60 and they add up.  The cost of all the books and magazines you buy add up.
The value of this course, including all videos and downloads is at least $650.

I’m offering the whole course for $127.  You get access to the whole course at once.

we would also like to offer you access to the artful quilting course at a discount
