Blair gets it. Cloth and creating can be fraught with 'but I don’t want to ruin it!' but with her experience and guidance, fears step aside and you’re left with accomplishments- and friends!
Its a very digital world out there!
Take some time to get back to some basics and make something.
I love sharing the joy and sense of accomplishment patchwork can offer those of us willing to explore it.
Through my background career in the apparel design industry, as well as my current quilt making practice, I have developed techniques that I love sharing through workshops and trunk shows. I believe in letting the process of discovery take us in new directions. I also believe in encouraging us all to use what we have, to add our own chapter to a special fabric’s story.
Learn to cut into those treasured pieces and beloved scraps with confidence.

Great instruction, works for all levels - some aspect will be new for everyone, Blair is responsive to questions, lots of info is presented, helpful videos.
This class really took my sewing skills from basic to more intermediate. There were some things I needed to see to understand. Also, I love that as someone who works full time and struggles to find the time to participate in local quilting guilds, I could take these classes when my schedule allowed. Blair, you are a gift! Thank you.
(True confession- Me too!)
