My Classes

Traveling throughout the greater Portland, Oregon, Vancouver, Washington area gives me the flexibility to teach to a diverse, eccecltic group of sewists. Often times I learn as much from my students as they learn from me! And I enjoy sharing the many projects and problem-solving techniques that I've acquired from my teachings. Each and every student in my class receives as much or as little support as they need, based on their indiviual skill level.

Flip Flap Bag - Nov 22, 2016

This is designed as a cross body bag with two secret pockets and is fat quarter friendly. You'll be amazed by just how easy this project is  just a little time consuming! The bag lends itself to using multiple fabrics and using buttons as embellishment. I made a few changes to my sample by adding additional stabilizer, enlarging the secret pockets and adding a second pocket to the main bag as well as a key fob. Easy changes to make if you so desire.

Color Work Table Runner - Dec 07, 2016

Gentle curves are cut without a ruler or template then sewn together to create the main part of your project. This may sound scary but you will find it very freeing and surprisingly easy. Small bits of contrasting color(s) are scattered here and there to create interest in the design (I used all black for mine but you could use several different colors if you wish). I used very narrow strips of the fabrics to get the final look that I wanted but the strips could be made wider also (would go together faster!). I think this could make great placemats as well as a table runner; also a great wall hanging.

Cost: $ 40.00

Now, when you're ready to go home from your class or retreat, you can place the hot iron on the pressing surface, fold up the sides of the pressing surface, fasten the sides and you are protected from the hot iron.

Delectable Quilt - Dec 28, 2016

While this design may look difficult, it is very easy and is a great project to use a Layer Cake pre-cut (10" squares). The quilt is designed to finish at 77" x 90-1/2" (finished block size is 7" x 8-1/2") but I believe it can be made to almost any size very easily - think about making it as a table runner or bed runner. My sample is much smaller at about 47" x 54". This project can also be made using all the same fabric in each block rather than mixing them all up.

Cost: $ 45.00
