Classes and Lectures Available!

Some of you saw my announcement about my recent teaching opportunity at Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington, NJ! I decided I want to teach sewing (I love teaching and I love sewing: boom) and Jan, the owner and a friend of our guild/monthly host, was very welcoming. I even have two other classes in the works thanks to her encouragement (hint: here's one!). I'll share more about my classes and my teaching style as time goes on. For guild meetings, I prepare like crazy but I allow for some of the inevitable unexpected - I'm sure I'll account for that in classes, too. :)

Some have asked for a pattern for my orange peel baby quilt (I'm flattered!), but honestly, I can't really create a pattern based on scrap and improv piecing. However, I am teaching this quilt as my first class ("Orange Peels and Improv"), and you will be able to create a quilt as similar as you want, or as unique as you want!

This class will meet for two sessions: Monday October 6 for the orange peel technique, and Monday October 20 for the scrap improv piecing part. You'll come out with your very own orange peel quilt on a low volume background, as well as strategies and tips for both techniques! You can register here. I absolutely can't wait!

On my Classes page, I've also listed lectures and demos I can tailor to accommodate any quilting event (a guild meeting would be ideal!). I'd really like to get out there do more quilty things in person, which is one big reason I'm just going for it!

As always, thanks for all of your support in my quilty adventures! :)


  1. Congrats on the class. I am excited for you! I am giving my first quilt talk by myself in September at the Molly Pitcher quilt guild. I am excited and nervous. It will be a talk and trunk show of my modern traditional work.

  2. How cool! I hope you get lots of fun teaching gigs :-)

  3. Congrats, Jess! Wish I lived close enough to join in because that's my favorite quilt of yours ever!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
