Classes and Workshops

I have been teaching classes and workshops for over 20 years to both adults and children. We’ve had fun exploring many types of quilting techniques from traditional piecing to folk art to embellishing. I love to see what people come up with for colour and fabric and I always learn new things too.

Here is a selection of some of my current workshops, I am also happy to discuss other topics, so please send me a note if you are interested.

Stained Glass Quilting- Introductory level quilts for new quilters and more challenging pieces for the more advanced sewer. These workshops require a full day. I also offer a half day introductory workshop. More Information


Embellishment Projects-From beading to embroidery, dimensional quilts and colouring fabric, there are classes and projects for beginner to advanced quilters. Fabulous Flowers offer a chance to add some beading and beginner thread play as well as alternative border/binding treatments. Sensational Sunflowers introduces dimensional flowers and Poppin’ Poppies utilizes water soluble stabilizer and a hoop to make vibrant 3D poppies. There are also classes for water colour fabric painting to make beautiful sky and water fabrics as well as projects such as SummerTime Ferns introducing Paintstiks. More Information

    I am taking your workshop with the Orillia Guild in a few weeks. I am wondering why the experienced sewers are to trace the pattern twice on the black background.
    Thank you and looking forward to your workshop

      Marion, sorry for any confusion. You need to trace the design twice-on the black fabric facing the right way (once) and on your fusible reversed (once). Only one tracing on the black, but two in total. I am looking forward to the trip too! I have made a page for the tutorial if you want to have a look-check out the “stained glass technique” tab in the header on the site.
