This group is for those interested in getting together once a month and working on an unfinished project.

I will not be teaching a specific project in this class, but will be available to provide assistance with design or technique.  Join us if:

  • You have a project that you have started and want to finish, but just don’t get around to working on it at home,

  • Have been to any of my classes and need assistance getting the project started again,

  • Want to design your own project, but not sure where to start, 

  • You just want the opportunity to stitch and be inspired by the work of others.

In this class you´ll learn how to crochet a cute little hanging plant. I will teach basic crocheting stitches and how to use them to create a planter, the soil, and the plant itself.


More advanced crocheters can pick from four different types of plants.


These unkillable plants make a great addition to any space that needs a dash of character! Give one as a gift to a friend with a less than green thumb, adorn your bathroom, plant one in your camper and never worry about watering it.


Suitable for all levels.

Do you want to make something quickly, that is useful and doesn’t end up as a UFO? Learn how to sew fabric into strips and squares then quilt-as-you-go to construct a table runner. This could also be made into placemats or a bag. You should be able to make a whole table runner, bag or up to 4 placemats during the class. Further embellishment such as machine embroidery or sashiko stitching will be discussed and can be added later.


This class is suitable for beginner quilters, but basic sewing machine experience would be helpful.


A sewing machine is a requirement for this class.
