Announcing Virtual Lectures and Classes!

Yes, I’m doing the “pivot,” and taking my lectures and most of my classes online.  The three lectures available are:

   – Easy Color for Quilters

– Secrets from the Judge’s Chambers

– Studio 180 Design Lecture and Trunk Show


Most of the workshops on my “Classes” page are available to guilds online.  Demos are available, too.

I also have a few virtual classes for individuals on my “Shop” page.



Click on the “Classes” tab or “Shop” tab for more information.


I’d love to come and visit you virtually!




My website will be updated regularly, so please come back and visit often!
