- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I understand patterns, how to change them, when not to change them, and how to make something easier!
Together, we can start at the beginning (how to use a sewing machine, what materials you need, etc) and work up to something amazing (queen sized bed cover perhaps!)
Personally, I am notorious for making my own projects more complicated than necessary but that's because i find a pattern I like and choose to alter it to my own specifications.

My name is Kat and I'm really looking forward to learning something fun with you! I consider myself a wannabe Glass Artist. I am currently working on a dinosaur quilt- completely done out of fused glass screen printed with glass powders.
I did not study Education at school, but for nearly two years i taught glass fusing and basic sewing (ages 5-93) at a great art facility (no longer in business). I have been providing private lessons since September 2014.
I have a BA in Art History from CU Boulder and a Masters in Art Museum and Gallery Studies from Newcastle University. I grew up sewing, learned to knit just over 10 years ago, and got into quilting about 4 years ago (when I got my own machine and could stop borrowing my moms.) My first experience with glass was 6 years ago and I've been hooked ever since!
I consider myself a patient, fun, and encouraging instructor. I like to cater each lesson to your individual desires and ability while being fun and challenging. Sometimes you gotta go back to basics but i try to do so in a way that encourages and exemplifies growth.
I'm located in the South Denver Metro area. I will meet at several different libraries, your home, or online!!
I hope to work with you and help you reach your artistic goals, the grander the better!!
I taught 2 hour classes 5 days a week in Glass Fusing, Machine Sewing, and Knitting
Great job all around.
