Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Katy this afternoon. She was able to put me at ease right out of the gate. She is very knowledgeable and is able to communicate the fine points clearly and concisely. The time passed quickly and I walked away with a new understanding and appreciation for the skill required. If you are in need of instruction in knitting I can think of no one better.

Let me help you turn your tee shirt collection into a memorable quilt! There are techniques to preserving your treasured tees as a keepsake quilt that you'll be proud to display on the bed or a wall. (Jump into it without careful prep, and your tee shirt quilt may end up a stretched out mess!) Let me help you make the design decisions, stabilize and stitch your quilt top--or, if you aren't too handy with a sewing machine--I can help you stitch your vision. There's a way to showcase the tee shirt graphics on the sleeves, small logos, autographs, kids drawings or even a memorable stain! If tees aren't your thing, but you want to hang onto memories from a loved one's clothing, I can help with that, too. Or fashion baby's outgrown wardrobe into a blanket or wall hanging.

I can help you piece the quilt (that's the top) and can give you advice about choosing a quilting method (how it is all stitched together). This is a great project for multiple family members, an activity for ...

I can teach you traditional quilting, paper piecing, applique, landscape or portrait quilting. Or we could do one of my original designs. My specialty is hawaiian inspired folk art designs.

What inspires you?

Donna is patient, kind, and delivers clear instructions that anyone can follow! She has a great eye for detail, color, and movement in her work. She makes suggestions when she sees a way to help make the process easier and more seamless (pun intended). I've known Donna for a number of years, and she has always been helpful and positive. Take a class or two! You'll love it.

Donna is not just a teacher, but also a quilt designer. She shared one of her own original applique designs with me. It turned out beautifully, and was so much fun to learn.

Have you always wanted to learn quilting? You'll make a completed quilt in your first lesson! I've been quilting now for 8 years and love it! As a former education coordinator for JoAnn Fabric, I've also been teaching quilting lessons for 2 years.
In our Learn To Quilt class, you'll make a completed Mug Rug mini quilt while learning all the basics, and a few hidden treasures I've picked up along the way. You'll join the ranks of our fellow quilters in no time!
