If you don’t see something on this list that fits your needs or timeframes, please let me know! In most cases, I can put together a class, lecture or trunk show that centers around the topics that you want to hear about!

Still not sure what you are looking for? See the FAQs below:


1. What is a “Hands On” class?

In a Hands On class, students bring their machines to the class and are able to practice the course materials immediately with guidance from me. For Hands On classes, you may want to limit the number of students so that there is enough time for individual attention.  Approximately 20 students or so. These classes can be 3 hrs or 6 hrs long.

2. What is a Lecture/Demonstration class?

In a lecture/demonstration class, I will teach the course material using by showing sample, instructing how the designs are broken down and then demonstrate the designs on a machine. This allows students to learn the designs and see them in action. These classes can be as large as the space allows.

3. Do you only teach on longarm quilting machines?

Definitely not! I can teach on any brand of longarm quilting machine as well as sewing machines.

4. What if I don’t see a class that I like?

Just let me know what you want to learn and how long you want me to teach. Chances are, we can work it out for you!
