Booth at the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds-2014

This April my daughter and I attended the Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds presentation of Meet the Teacher. It was a fabulous event, where guild members were introduced to perspective teachers.

I have several lectures and classes that I teach for guilds and groups. If you are interested in hiring me for a lecture and to teach for your guild, please contact me at:

I found time to clean up the work room, and came across several small projects that have been waiting to be completed. So I hope to dedicate the next few months to completing some of these.

This is the first project, made from left-overs bits of this and that from a class that I teach, “Embellished Silk Treasures”.

The base is made from split silk cocoons, which were adhered to Lutrador, then machine embellished with gold threads. This was then embellished further with bits of painted vilene, fabric circles. A few embroidery and beading stitches enhance the components.
