I’m only teaching two classes this year because of COVID. I’d love to have you in one of them! Bernina World of Sewing in Raleigh has opened up a spacious classroom next to the shop, and we will be able to spread out to work. Questions? Please contact me. To register, please go to the shop’s website, or contact them.

Here are two little pieces I made recently. They are both smaller than a piece of paper. Both started as drawings based on original photos. I scanned the black line drawings and had them printed on fabric at Spoonflower, then painted and free-motion stitched them. I love how all of my cross-hatching shows through the paint on these pieces, so that they have lots of texture. I’m making these pieces to have some original work at lower price points for the Orange County Artists Guild open studio tour this fall.
