Independent Workshops
Since October, I have been offering Independent Virtual quilt workshops from my studio to yours. Each of these workshops consists of four LIVE three hour long ZOOM sessions that are recorded. Workshops consist of lectures, demonstrations, free-writes, studio visits, and one on one consultants. I would love to have you join me. All sessions are recorded and available for students to review for approximately 45 days after the workshop ends.

You can determine what time the workshop starts where you live by clicking on this link.  Enter Anchorage, Alaska for my time zone and enter your location for your time zone.

Complex Pattern in Contemporary Patchwork
In this new ADVANCED workshop, we will explore complex pieced pattern. We will investigate the use of pattern across cultures, while also educating ourselves on how to create our own individualized pieced pattern work, and incorporate that work into authentic quilt compositions. It is recommended that students have either completed the exercises in my book Improv Patchwork or have taken a previous workshop with me.Thursday, July 15, 2021 2PM-5PM AKDT
