Lectures and Workshops


Having Fun In Your Sewing Room


Having Fun In Your Sewing Room, Trunk Show. Love to quilt but can't find the time? I can help you budget your time to include the passion you love, quilting! While showing my own quilts, I'll discusses choosing the right projects, setting up your sewing room or area, storage, plus other household tasks such as cooking and cleaning. Just a few minutes each day will produce quilts that you and your family will treasure.

Me, Myself & My Quilts


Me, Myself & My Quilts, Trunk Show. Let me tell you how I started sewing at a young age, how I started quilting & then eventually started my quilting business. I'll explain how I design quilts, where my inspiration comes from and how I sell my quilting designs world-wide. Specific trunk show of key quilts from my business are included.

Feed Sack Fascination

Feed Sack Fascination, Trunk Show. I'm fascinated by feed sacks & items created with them from this historical time when many seamstresses were creatively challenged to use feed, flour & sugar sacks for cloth to create for their families. Presentation will include a bit of history of the evolution of the tens of thousands of cotton sacks printed in this era, but I'll wow you with some of the  many period sacks from my collection along with quilts, clothes, doll clothes and other household items all made of sacks; many in unbelievable pristine condition. I hope you'll be inspired to sew with reproduction prints available today or maybe start collecting the originals yourself.
