WOW - I didn't think it would be possible to learn a detailed skill like crochet by video! But Kim made it so easy! I was so frustrated trying to use videos on YouTube. Kim is worth every penny. It was fun and easy - she made me feel relaxed and she was very patient with me! THANK YOU!

Very personalized session. She had prepared for lesson with my materials and determined, appropriately, where we needed to start. Time went quite quickly and I really enjoyed her relaxed and easy teaching style.

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 ...

MarKay has been wonderful with my 10 year old daughter. She is patient and my daughter has learned quite a bit in just a few lessons which is keeping her excited about each upcoming lesson! I highly recommend her.

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.

Donna is a great sewing teacher! She worked with my 11-year-old and was patient, clear, and engaging. Being 11, my daughter was underprepared, but Donna had a project lined up for her. Donna taught skills she hadn’t learned or mastered like zippers, buttons, ironing, and fabric choice.

I highly recommend Donna. And will be taking lessons from her myself!

I have been quilting for over 20 years. I absolutely love quilting and want to share quilting with all who are interested.
I have taught quilting to several individuals. I teach many styles: Piecing, Applique, Paper Piecing, Finishing the Quilt Sandwich, and Longarm quilting. I am interested in sharing this art with beginners as well as experienced quilters who want to learn a new skill.
Come join the quilting community! Let your inner creativity come out with fabric!

I've had a few lessons with Sonya under my belt now and I could not be happier with her as my instructor. I came into this with very specific things I wanted to learn or touch on and she has been very knowledgeable. I'm not an absolute beginner, more of an advanced beginner and she adapts her lesson plans accordingly. She knows her stuff, she's great at teaching, flexible and just an all around cool chick. Money and time well spent.

This is definitely a subject that requires patience to teach online! Sonya is well suited for this job both in patience and in knowledge, and in creativity to teach with a difficult format. You won’t be disappointed.
