Learn with Me

I love to share my love of color and texture with other people! My “day job” is teaching Biology to non-science majors at the University of Redlands, I am very comfortable engaging my students and putting complex ideas into terms they understand. I’ve found many ways to reach students in a variety of settings:

Online Dyeing Classes

I have a series of online classes that cover a wide range of fabric dyeing techniques.  They are self-paced and access never expires, so they’re really more like books that have a lot of videos to walk you through the tricky parts, and you can ask the author/teacher (me!) questions if you’re confused! Find out more about them here.

Patio Classes

I also offer in person, single day dyeing classes on my patio! Read more about those here. There are also a couple of classes scheduled in the next couple months, look here on my current events page for more details on those.

Free Motion Quilting Classes

I teach several different free motion quilting classes each year at the Redlands Sewing Center. They have a great space with room for up to 16 quilters at a time, and most awesomely, there’s always a staff member on hand to help with any machine issues that come up, hooray! To see my upcoming classes with them, look here on my current events page, or call the Redlands Sewing Center  (909) 792-3994.

At Your Location

I’ve also begun travelling further afield to share my story and techniques with quilt guilds.
