I love to talk and write about the quilting process. It is one that involves a physical, manual skill, but also a lot of psychological dimensions. I like to think of myself more as a quilting coach than a teacher, because skills can be learned quickly and easily. My experience has given me the ability to make the skills stick. Connecting with students, I make an effort to help students translate class skills to their home quilting spaces, and to help them find the methods and mindsets that make their quilting method as personally and creatively rewarding as possible.
