Tips, Tuts, Templates and Classes


I teach regularly at the Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead and at Fancy Moon in Crystal Palace. Amongst my teaching portfolio are beginners classes to make quilted cushions and baby quilts, classes for advanced quilters on specific quilt blocks but also gift making classes; how to make frame purses, laptop and other media covers and much more.

I also teach one-to-one sessions at my home. If you are interested please contact me via e-mail:
