High school librarian by day, crafter for life. I'm a certified BurdaStyle teacher, award winning embroider, quilter and knitter. I advise a high school sewing club as well as volunteer with Days for Girls and church prayer shawl ministry. Please note, during the summers my schedule is more flexible when school is not in session. Students will find I'm passionate about all needle arts and want to pass that along to all generations and skill levels. Learning to sew, knit or hand embroider can be intimidating, but with the right support can become a lifelong hobby that provides joy to your life. Let me show you how to get started. I look forward to helping you exercise your creative side.

Dawn is a superb teacher! My partner gifted me a few lessons for my birthday. I've been wanting to get into embroidery but have struggled to launch; lessons with Dawn were perfect inspiration and support. Dawn's analogies, warmth, enthusiasm, and attention to detail make for a wonderful learning experience. I can't recommend Dawn enough! I will certainly keep her in mind as I continue learning.
I'm 11 and Coach Dawn has helped me in so many ways. From teaching me how to do a bobble stitch to teaching me different cables. Coach Dawn is one of the best teachers out there. I knew a few thing about knitting before but Coach Dawn really help me get better at knitting and learn new things. Coach Dawn really is one of the best teachers out there.
