Teaching Schedule • Guild Programs

I am having the best time doing Zoom Guild Presentations and Guild Workshops. This has been one of the silver linings for our pandemic lives.

Guild Programs And Workshops label
Zooming is now possible all over the nation, and we can adjust timing to suit your particular time zone. I have three online classes, and currently one program (see below). Contact me to schedule one for your Guild by email at opquilt using a gmail.com suffix.  

•  Abecedary of Quiltsa series of stories about quilts, the people who quilt, and how quilting touches our lives.  More than just a “I-sewed-this-square-to-this-triangle,” I tell about how quilting reflects our lives, how quilts carry stories and memories and years of our lives.  At the end I talk about the Power of Quilting, nine impactful ways we are affected by, and affect others, with our creative work.

Since I’ve been quilting for several decades, I have mastered a raft of skills: appliqué, embroidery, wool work, piecing, designing, free-motion quilting, mid-size machine quilting, hand-stitching, English Paper-Piecing, modern quilting, and paper piecing.  In other words, I have a multi-skill approach to quilts.
