Like so many quilters, my first experience sewing was learning garment construction from my Mom, who happened to be a fashion designer in New York. She also taught me do make quite a few home dec projects (I much prefer window treatments to upholstery).   Sewing took a backseat to college, career, marriage and family though somewhere along the line I became interested in quilts. In 1997 I needed something to do at 2 AM, that was quiet, and would divert my attention away from back pain – learning to quilt was the answer.  As every quilter knows somewhere, somehow quilting takes on a life of its own and sweeps you along with it. Since then I have enjoyed taking classes, learning new techniques, making quilts for family and friends and best of all teaching. I have been fortunate to be able to teach classes both in Denver and Virginia, and hope to continue for years to come.
