Continuing Education Courses
In the spring of 2009 I taught my first Quilted Fabric Picture class through Saratoga Spring's Continuing Education program. This 5-week class focused on making simple pictures and embellishment techniques. My students were great! About half of them have been quilting for years; their willingness to experiment with fabric and work without a pattern lead to some awesome discoveries about how fabric can speak to the sewer. The other folks had not sewn a lot in years; they were able to create incredible pictures and then sew their vision together.

Here are some pictures of my past students and their creations from my Beginning and Intermediate classes:
Spring 2010
Fall 2010
Skidmore College
In the fall of 2008, I worked as a consultant to teach a class of Skidmore students how to design and create fabric pictures. These students traveled to South Africa in spring 2009 as part of the Skidmore South Africa Education Study Abroad Program, and with my help they created story quilts about their experiences.
