Instructor Bio:
I am living the dream! I get to spend my days working with beautiful fabrics, beautiful designs and beautiful people. AND I get to share about something I love! Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of hard work and stick-to-itiveness. But I am so blessed to have this vocation, to have been given these opportunities.

One of my favorite quotes is "Fortune favors the prepared mind." from Louis Pasteur. Let me tell you how I got here. There are really three key traits I have spent a long time preparing: creativity, teaching ability and performance.

I have always been creative and had a love of color. I remember organizing my box of crayons in color order. I fed that drive with books, magazines, tv shows and videos. (I call this part "vicarious crafting", because I often went long stretches not making a DARN thing, just reading about it!) I learned garment construction, embroidery and crewel, floral design and even an unsuccessful attempt at knitting. I often combined patterns, these sleeves, that neckline, this skirt, to get just the vision I wanted. When I started quilting, it brought all theses skills together and I was happily trapped. My little sewing space in the laundry was my oasis. To be a designer, you have to blaze your own trail. Others' ideas can be an inspiration, but you have to have your own point of view, blaze your own trail.

I come from a long line of teachers. My dad was a high school math teacher for years. My mother also taught English and Spanish before I came along. And my birth-mom taught special needs children for years. I always have an inner dialogue about how to teach something. "Now, when you add the potatoes to the pan, don't crowd them or they will steam." I was in my 40s when I realized not everyone has this running commentary! I spent 14 years honing this skill when I homeschooled my daughters.
