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 great! We have been working online and she has been able to walk me, a beginner, from learning simple stitches to making boxers and jackets! Highly recommend.
I had some initial knitting lessons with Dawn -- I am complete beginner with knitting and she is so patient. She helps you figure out what you might have done wrong, and how to correct it. I am now taking quilting lessons with Dawn and I am so excited. She has years of experience and can help you avoid expensive school of hard knocks lessons. What a treasure! I highly recommend Dawn!
Dawn is an excellent sewing instructor. She is working with my 14-year-old, who is a beginner at sewing. Dawn tailors the lessons to my child's level, ability, and interests. Dawn is very thorough, clear, and knowledgeable. I had doubts about my child learning to sew from online lessons, but it's been no problem--even though I can't help because I have very limited skills when it comes to sewing machines. Dawn has helped my child trouble-shoot when the machine's foot fell off, saving me the hassle and expense of taking the machine to a repair shop. Yeah! My child is excited about sewing and looks forward to each lesson.
