Studio Tour #3


While I’m out of town teaching at the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) you get a view of my sewing studio back home. This is the fusing table where all the magic and mess happens. Note the piles of fused fabric scraps against the wall. There’s so much fabric I barely have room to make anything on the table top. Cleverly, the table top is covered with Teflon so I can fuse directly to it when making my art quilts. That is, when you can find the table top.

Studio Tour #2


Here’s how I left my studio before traveling to teach at the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) in Santa Clara CA. It’s a pit!

Visiting the Capital?
