I teach a mix of art and design based classes, free motion quilting, and traditional methods. Each class can be reasonably tailored to the group attending. Or if the group thing isn't for you, private tutoring to your specific needs is available.

If you are interested in group classes or private tutoring, please contact me via my email.
