Thread painting and I had a natural love affair from the first stitch. Being able to capture a favorite photo or familiar scene in thread and fabric has been an amazing adventure for me, one in which I would like to share with you. I invite you to stay a while and explore the world of thread painting.


  Virtual Workshop and Lectures  

For the past 20 years I have been traveling around the country teaching thread painting and thread sketching. Twenty-twenty changed all that by curtailing the safe travel from place to place. Meeting new students and seeing previous students are what keeps me teaching and that has been pretty much non-existent. To keep up with the times and to create an avenue where I can teach again I am excited to announce the addition of Virtual Workshops and lectures.  Above is a sample of one of the virtual workshops. You can access my Virtual workshops offerings by clicking here.

My New Competitive Quilt

Voices of Freedom
Declaration of Independence

Entering competitive quilting events is part of my DNA and for most of the last 3 ½ years I worked on the quilt above, Voices of Freedom. The quilt is a reproduction of John Trumbull’s painting of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I love challenges and Voices of Freedom did not disappoint. The 4,000 hours spent on the many aspects of making this monster was worth every minute.
