Upcoming Classes and Workshops for all skill levels.
As a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor, Kathi finds great joy in sharing Judy’s process and techniques. She feels that it is so awesome to see and share “ah ha” moments with other quilters and when they see how easy and perfect their blocks and quilts turn out. She helps her students realize that they are able to do things way beyond what they ever thought they were capable of doing.
Kathi has won numerous awards, including 2 Best Longarm Workmanship awards at AQS Shows, 2 quilts placed at the IQA Houston Show, and in Feb. 2014 won Best Of Show at the Phoenix AQS Show among others.

Frieda finds each step of quilt making, from the beginning to the end, a real challenge. She loves the pure creativity involved in conceiving and designing a new quilt.
She loves to piece and to fuse. Frieda has found that by fusing smaller pieces, she can work out design issues. Most of her work is machine quilted and nature inspired.

ANITA GROSSMAN SOLOMON
With a degree in fine art, Anita Grossman Solomon moved to lower Manhattan in 1975 to paint. Within 3 years she put down her brushes to work with contemporary art collections. In 1990 she took up quiltmaking becoming a full-time quilt teacher and author.
She makes artful bed quilts from classic blocks using her signature non-traditional methods. Her “Why didn’t I think of that?” innovations make quiltmaking faster and easier. Her original techniques, efficient construction shortcuts, and no-waste methods have been featured in numerous magazine and books.
Her Workshop Blog is an indication of what you might expect in her classes. Take a peek at makeitsimplerworkshops.blogspot.com
Norma was greatly influenced by the warm utility quilts which kept her family cozy through long, cold Minnesota winters., of course, course were scrap quilts made by the women in my family. This is still the kind of quilt she is consistently drawn to.
Norma loves the culture of quilting – women coming together to create something of beauty for their homes, and at the same time sharing hopes, dreams, recipes, gardening tips, and soul sustenance.
Norma loves to create, design and work with fabric. She considers her quilts to be her legacy; they will help to tell her life’s story. And because she also loves inspiring, beautifully written words, they often find their way into her pattern packets and her quilt labels.
