Kim has such an extensive background and is such a patient teacher! she is great at explaining the basics and getting you comfortable working thru patterns. I am so excited to see my progress as I continue lessons with her! She has reinvigorated my desire to knit/crochet and advance my skills! the only downside is having to do the lessons online from Florida! I wish I could take them in person with her!

We've had Dawn teach a variety of classes at the Simsbury Public Library (CT). Our most popular is the arm knitting class we open to Teens & Adults. Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves. We can't wait to have Dawn back to teach more classes this Fall!

Dawn is an amazing sewing instructor. She taught my 8 year old daughter to sew her first quilt, which later won first prize at the Terryville Fair. Dawn is punctual, energetic, and patient. My daughter enjoyed every lesson and learned the fundamentals of sewing, cutting, and following patterns. Lessons were effective and fun.

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 want to help you succeed.
We could work on your very first quilt together, or something more advanced. Individual personalized classes are the best way to learn.

I teach traditional quilting, paper piecing, applique, landscape or portrait quilting. Would you like to make one of my original designs?

What inspires you? Let's unleash your creativity.

I have had several quilting lessons with Donna and have truly enjoyed our lessons. She is patient, kind, friendly and supportive. She is creative and clearly passionate about the art of quilting. I highly recommend her if you are looking to learn how to sew and/or quilt.

Donna was very personable and nice. I learned a lot from her and she made sewing less awkward for me. I went home immediately and tried my new techniques. I was able to complete another project from what I learned earlier that day. Donna’s great!

My first lesson with Sonya was great. I have no experience and she made the process enjoyable. By the end of my first lesson she had me sewing.

I've really appreciated Sonya's hands-on teaching approach and guidance as I learn this new skill. She's equal parts teacher and coach, creating a comfortable environment to explore and learn. I leave energized after our sessions and look forward to the next one. She's also been very flexible with my schedule, removing the stress of juggling a hectic calendar. She's truly a world-class instructor.

Beginning students can learn to sew by creating designs with fabric. For the most part students will be doing straight line sewing which means fairly basic quilting squares. I teach mostly from the perspective of learning to sew, not designing quilts.
