Please see the Overview below for general information.

Learn basic hand and machine sewing skills and the nuts and bolts technical stuff of assembling your quilt top, tying your comforter and other hand finishing techniques.

Please note, I do not teach machine quilting or hand quilting involving stitching through many layers of fabric and padding.

I can recommend teachers who are better at color work and design.

About Kim

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 7 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children. I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience. Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing

I have been sewing since I was twelve and have been quilting for twelve years. I enjoy designing and working on quilt tops. I work from patterns sometimes but I really love to make quilts based on pictures and drawings.

About Joan

I have in Bachelor's degree in Accounting and Management Information Systems (computer science). I struggled with math as a child but asked for tutoring in Junior High and I was able to overcome my difficulties. I even got a degree in a math related field and had a very lucrative career designing and programming computerized accounting systems. I know first hand that a difficult subject area for a student can become their greatest strength. I learned to knit at the age of five and to sew at the age of twelve. I had a Halloween costume business for several years. I now spend a bit of my time each day making quilts. I host international students so I have several years of experience working with students on improving their English skills.

Marci H. North Canton, OH

All quilters are taught at any level. Make a quilt from start to finish, including piecing, quilting, and binding the edges. Bring a pattern and fabrics or a rough sketch and an idea.
I also make unique T-Shirt quilts out of baby clothes or really anyone's clothes. These are as unique as the individual who used to wear the clothes.

i focus on machine quilting. i will do just about anything to avoid hand sewing, but i do know several stitches and when to use them.

I understand patterns, how to change them, when not to change them, and how to make something easier!

Together, we can start at the beginning (how to use a sewing machine, what materials you need, etc) and work up to something amazing (queen sized bed cover perhaps!)

Personally, I am notorious for making my own projects more complicated than necessary but that's because i find a pattern I like and choose to alter it to my own specifications.

About Kat

Hi there! My name is Kat and I'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders. I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i have been teaching glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014. I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when I got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first experience ...

Quilting is a fun hobby that allows you to create beautiful works of art. Don't let the size of the quilt intimidate you, anyone can learn to quilt!

About Elizabeth

Hi, there! My name is Elizabeth and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2013 and have loved helping my students learn a new skill and gain confidence in their abilities. I went to UNCGreensboror and earned a degree in fashion design in 2003. I'm a patient and fun person and my teaching style is something I try to tailor to each student's goals and needs on an individual basis. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I've been teaching quilting now for 15 years. When I first was taught many years ago I took off and can teach anyone the basics of hand quilting as well as using a sewing machine. You will learn how to do basic quilting patterns, how many stitches to an inch, how color fabric works together and we will do a lap quilt using 4 different squares. I will also teach you hand made binding. I supply needles, quilting thread, and basic fabric to practice. I use all quilting books for studying and showing basics to students. Welcome all ages!

About Donna

I have been teaching art and crafting lessons in the Atlanta area for over 7 years. Mostly word of mouth, advertising & displaying my work in galleries. I went to the School of Visual Arts with a BFA in Art History and Fine Arts. I have 5 grown children and three out of the five work in the field of design due to my teaching them when they were young, giving them a desire to work further on their talent. I've taught craft classes in small and large church group settings. Example of my teachings: collage plates, handmade lotions and bath salts, making handcrafted note cards, teaching techniques in all mediums of painting, quilting one design for framing, lessons in home staging for selling homes on your own, interior design lessons in colors and placement of items. Before 2005 I lived in ...
