EVERY QUILT TELLS A STORY With her trademark humor, high energy and "done is better than perfect" attitude, Michele takes you on a journey through her 20 years of quilting. From her very first project to the latest award winning and book quilts, she shares the hilarious mishaps and missteps that shaped her into the quilt professional she is now. This lecture is a crowd pleaser for all, as a multitude of topics is covered while she passes around (yes, you can touch them!) over 70 quilts. From machine and bobbin quilting to designing for magazines to getting your work published, this lecture is the ultimate compilation of her three lectures.


"QUILT AS DESIRED..." Ideas for Machine Quilting your Quilt "Quilt as desired..." - don't you just hate those words?? Using LOTS of quilts, I'll show you the many ways you can machine quilt your completed tops. Feel free to bring tops along for a group or private consultation!

DESIGNING QUILTERS Many quilters have ideas floating around in our head - quilts we would like to make. This lecture will help you to take your ideas from your head and put them on paper. Whether it's a new block design, small wallhanging, or full bed quilt, I will give you tips and tricks to creating your own designs - the do's and don'ts of designing and how to incorporate a certain fabric into your quilts. We will also discuss where to find color inspiration as well as how to break down the color and value process. Lecture includes a trunk show of my original designs, published and non-published - more than 50 quilts in all.

Bobbin Quiltin' Fun! (3 or 6 hour class)

Why agonize over those breaking needles and shredded threads that you've bought for machine quilting put them in the bobbin when you can simply flip over the quilt and quilt it up-side-down? In this class, we will problem solve your way through a multitude of decorative threads and yarns (yes, we do LOTS of couching!) We'll first try different tips and tricks I've acquired over the years to put the threads through the top; if that doesn't work, we'll bobbin-quilt it! Get familiar with your machine and adjusting both top and bottom tension while learning all those cool quilting patterns that don't need marking. Other things we explore ­ free motion zigzag and a bit of fusible appliqué! This is information packed class! We'll also create a great wall hanging of threads and yarns to practice our new surface embellishment skills!

Machine Quilting 1.5 Machine Quilting 1.5 is the perfect fusion of a basic and advanced machine quilting class!

This class is PERFECT for a multilevel class.

A Little of This, A Little of That (3 or 6 hour class)

Using fusing, seamless piecing and decorator threads and yarns, you will create a small art quilt designed by you. Raw edge appliqué with fusible web, machine quilting and embellishment will express something important to you: a feeling, a person, a garden, the beach. The doors of creativity will open in this fast and fun class as we investigate free form cutting to build collage-type artworks that express YOU! Additional focus will be placed on color and line that can translate your feeling.
