I am a composer (DMA in Composition) and a fibre artist/teacher. I create small art quilts, and enjoy passing on my love of sewing and quilting by teaching others. Many of my beginner level classes are offered through the City of Long Beach (California) Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine. I am a member of SAQA, and the international group Fifteen Quilts.

More completed student projects
From l to r: Lisette, Loralee, Susannah and Dee Dee in their new aprons
Robert and Erin model their aprons
My last Beginning Sewing class for 2010 ended on Monday night. The students left with their new aprons ready to wear or give as Christmas gifts. A new round of City of Long Beach Parks and Recreation sewing classes will begin on January 4th. These classes are always satisfying to teach, especially when students finish their projects. It is wonderful to see how students gain confidence in their sewing skills as the class progresses.
