To my Students, Customers, and Friends!

Hello, everyone!!!

After having "shut down" class-wise after pandemic/etc. through mid-2022 - I had a November class - and, I will have that same class in February 2023: One Block Wonder. Registration is ready at the store (Bernina World of Sewing - Raleigh); Registration is also available via the store's online Web Shopping site. Please see the comment below about possible other classes if you are interested.

I have started thinking about other classes/dates for Winter/Spring/Summer 2023 classes. If you have any comments as to what YOUR plans are as relates to my classes "down the road" - of course, just get back to me eMail-wise or while you are at the store. If you have some special "needs" now is the time to speak up.

I look forward to seeing you - and, working with you - in a class or at the store (Bernina World of Sewing, in Raleigh) eventually!!!!

For info:

  • One Block Wonder (Upcoming - February 2023)
    Class Description: Yes, the class is back! If you are ready for your 1st, 2nd or 3rd… choose a fabric that you really like - and I promise that you will have fun, with lots of surprises, while creating your One Block Wonder quilt. Join us for new adventures with your fabric!

  • Miniatures (Foundation Piecing) - All In The Family (Upcoming - May 2023.)
    Class Description: This class is for all who love foundation piecing and want to take a step further. The “miniature” is used for the small blocks; not necessarily the size of the quilt. We will work with 2” (finished) blocks.

    Use numerous class options - traditional to contemporary designs - from the family of traditional Log Cabin and Pineapple patterns.

    Class Workbook and Sew-on patterns are included in the class fee.

  • Beginners Start to Finish (May happen in Spring/Summer 2023 - We see.)
    Class Description: If you always have wanted to learn how to make a quilt - come and join us for two relaxing Saturdays. This class will teach you how to make a quilt from start to finish, including straight-line machine quilting and finishing the quilt with a binding. This is a true beginner's class. This is an ideal class for "busy" people -- almost no homework! Also, a good class for a young person who is experimenting to see if he/she enjoys sewing. Note: This class requires that you have a sewing machine, at home, for any necessary homework.
    Option-1 and Option-2

Send me an eMail if you are interested in the above classes Winter/Spring/Summer 2023. Just eMail to:

Good luck to you all - with YOUR projects.


Don't hesitate to give me a comeback if you have any comments/questions regarding my plans. Just eMail to: or, of course, I look forward to talking with you directly at the store.

Reminder: To register for my classes, please call the store (Bernina World of Sewing: (919) 782-2945) or (better yet!) stop by the store (on Glenwood Ave. in Raleigh - about two miles North of Crabtree Shopping Center). You may also register for the classes online - at the store's Website - however, you will have to stop by the store or contact me a few weeks prior to the class to obtain the class Supply List.
