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 Portland, OR, 97008.
I’m a fun and relaxed speaker, and a helpful and encouraging teacher who irons and rips seams for her students! I’m proud to be part of the longstanding tradition of hands-on teaching of the needle arts. My goal is to make it fun to make more quilts 🙂
There’s Magic in the Lesson: Or Perfection is Overrated!
A trunk show of the various successes and failures of a life of making quilts and other things with a sewing machine.
A trunk show of the quilts and projects from my book Quilt Talk and the stories behind the quilts.
We Are $ew Worth It
A lecture and trunk show about calculating what you charge for making quilts, with a ton of information on how to educate your buyer.
I can teach a workshop for any of my patterns, or any of the projects from by book, Quilt Talk. I’m happy to have a conversation with you to find the best workshop fit for the interests and abilities of your group. Most patterns can be taught in a 6-hour session. Patterns, or a book discount, are provided as part of the workshop fee! Dingbats and the Chunky Wee Bag are very popular workshops, and the Oh Scrap! buckets from the book are crowd pleasers.
Lectures: $450 for a one hour lecture and trunk show (happy to do extra Q&A). If more than 50 miles from my home in Beaverton, OR (97008), then I would prefer to book the lecture to include a workshop.
Workshops: $500 for the first 10 students, and $20 per student thereafter, up to 20 students. Patterns are provided as part of the workshop fee (or a discount on my book if we’re using it for the workshop).
Small Groups: I’m happy to teach small groups – please get in touch to discuss.
Merchandise: I bring a wide selection of all my products with me to sell. I don’t pay commission to the guild on these, but offer them at a discount to your members instead.
