Promoted Instructor for Westalee Rulers
Rulers Rule! - Do you have a drawer full of rulers that you do not know how to use? Are you tired of purchasing one ruler that will only do one job? This program will solve your problems. You’ll learn which rulers can “multitask” and which ruler is the better option for a specific job. Also learn about notions that help rulers do their job easier. Includes a trunk show of specialty ruler sample quilts. [Combine with a hands-on workshop (Ruler Round Robin) to use those rulers sitting in your sewing room or try before you buy.]
How to Easily Quilt any Size Quilt on your Home Machine!
There are many ways to deal with the bulk of machine quilting. Learn some of the creative ways quilters have come up with to solve this problem. Preparation, products and techniques will get you started quilting larger quilts. Most quilts can be done using one or more of these methods so your quilt can be done with a size you can handle easily. See workshops for hands on version.
Make Your Mark!
Marking your fabric for quilting, clothing and crafts is so much easier today. We've come a long way from the lead pencil. There are so many amazing and innovative products to help us with this chore. Wash off, iron off & on, disappearing and more. What do we use, how does it work and will it go away? We'll cover when to use each type, how to remove them, the pro's and con's [they all have those!]. See for yourself; we'll have many available for a hands-on try- out.
Needles and Threads
From basics to specialty needles and threads that can solve problems, create interesting effects and help achieve the perfect machine stitch. There are so many styles/types and sizes/thicknesses of each available today. We'll take the mystery out of what, when and why to use. We’ll also cover: solving common stitching problems, various aids to stitching and getting a perfect 1/4" seam.
Retreat Visits & / or teaching – we are available to visit with our “wall of notions”, do mini demos on various products, teach a specific topic or project and be a “Teacher on duty” in the open sew room to advise, suggest different options and products and keep machine working smoothly.

There are many other topics if you are looking for something specific. Lectures are good for learning about new things but I believe "hands on" adapts the best to all learning styles.
