Presentation and Teaching Information
Innovative Appliqué Workshop

I designed Innovative Appliqué to make turned edge appliqué easy; lowering the learning curve, improving accuracy and productivity. A six hour class for up to twenty students is the best learning environment. This allows time for students to experience the process and be able to duplicate the method in the future. My teaching goal is to add appliqué to a beginner's tool box. For experienced appliquérs the goal is a new and improved tool box.
 
English Paper Piecing Made Modern Workshop

I love the look of English Paper Piecing but did not like the traditional method. Folding fabric over paper, gluing or basting, whip-stitching and then pulling papers out. There had to be a better way! I designed self-stick templates that can be reused until they no longer stick (5-10 times). The templates enable you to cut multiply layers or fussy cut your fabric. Straight stitch by hand or machine, eliminating the previous mentioned time consuming tasks. I teach you how to use the templates, pick the fabric/color and stitch it all together by hand or machine.
