Just want you to know a little about my sewing background

 I had my 1st machine( it was small) when I was 7, made my 1st garment when I was 10,(made all of my clothes after that) my 1st Quilt when I was 20. I have made a living Custom Sewing for the last 43+ years. During those years I have sewn everything from garment alterations, Costumes, Dance Wear, Bridal and Evening Gowns, Upholstered and Slipcovered furniture. From Doll clothes to Tailoring suits. Working with all different kinds of Fabric. I can’t think of much I have not sewn on. But that’s work

 I opened a quilt shop so I could teach again. And I Just Love teaching Quilting 101.      Thank you for taking my class, Denise

See you in the morning. Classroom will be open at 930
