I love to talk about art and teach people how to make it. If you’d like to hire me to do so, please get in touch and we’ll make it happen. I’m happy to come to guilds, stores, retreats and mini-group gatherings. (FYI, I live in Burbank CA)

There’s Magic in the Lesson: Or Perfection is Overrated! A slide and trunk show of the various successes and failures of a life of making quilts and other things with a sewing machine.
Health and the Quilter
A slide lecture and demonstration of how to set up your workspace to fit your body, and how to stretch your tired muscles after a day at the machine – in which Sam makes quite a fool of herself on stage!
Wearing My Heart On My Sleeve
A slide and trunk show of fiber art and garments made over a two year journey during graduate school – while dealing with the aftereffects of a heart attack (and the lecture is way more upbeat than you think… I ‘m living to tell about it!)
The Proverbial Challenge
A mostly slide lecture of quilts created for the Proverbial Challenge. The quilts are humorous illustrations of proverbs, sayings, and riddles made by artists across the United States in response to challenges designed by Sam a few years ago.
Dyeing Fabric in Jelly Jars
Sam has been teaching fabric dyeing for almost 20 years in SoCal and has developed fun and easy recipes for making beautiful dyed fabrics.
Two 3 hour workshops are available:
Bright or Muted Colorwheel in 24 steps
Color Gradations – 6 steps each of 4 colors
Blanket Statement: A Paper-Pieced Alphabet
In this workshop, Sam teaches paper piecing with her alphabet patterns, and discusses compositional choices for using text in quilts.
6 Hour session.
Quilts, Quilts and More Quilts
Choose any one of the Hunter’s Design Studio pattern line and Sam will make a workshop around it! Head to the patterns tab to see the latest offerings. Most of the patterns can be taught in a 6 hour session.
