Great Instructor, I highly recommend her 👍

Very nice, patient and knowledgeable teacher. Easy to follow her instructions. Kathy has great tricks that she easily shared and made sure we understood before moving on. Highly recommend one of her classes.

Great group instructor…AND personal follow up!

Kathy was very helpful during Qultworx University. She provided helpful tips and shortcuts, written cue cards. I found her group instructions to be helpful and appreciated individual follow up after the demonstration. She was also quick answer individual questions and requests for help with problems. I enjoyed learning to know and work with Kathy.

Thank you Kathy…

Thank you for help. I loved the card you gave us for the steps on paper piecing. Quiltworx University was a large class, so I really appreciated all the times you came to my station to offer help and advice.

I would fly to Texas to take another class from her!

Kathy is an amazing instructor! Don’t miss an opportunity to learn from one of the best! I’ve taken two of her classes. I  live in Indiana, but I would fly to Texas to take another class from her!

Your trunk show at our guild was stunning….

Kathy, your trunk show and presentation of your work was stunning. You have given me the ambition to try tackling these stunning patterns. All I can say, if you have the chance to see Kathy’s trunk show- you must! Her personality shines through and is only embellished by her quilting talent.

A Confidence Booster!

I had never tackled anything like the Dinner Plate Dahlia before.  I was really skeptical whether I could do it, but Kathy made it do-able.  I really appreciate not only Kathy’s help and instruction, but especially her support!  Great class, even better instructor! I met some really great classmates as well!

I took a four class series for the Dinner Plate Dahlia.  The picture shows my homework from classes 1 and 2. Class 3 is next week and I am ready! Kathy is a great instructor with lots of patience, I really appreciate her availability in between classes for help! (We “faced-timed” to troubleshoot when I… Read more “Ready for the Next Step…”

Best class I have ever taken…and I’ve taken alot!

One of the very best classes I have ever taken. And I have taken a lot!  I am absolutely sincere in my praise, there were some real “light bulb” moments.  Thank You! (Oh and Yes, I did get my Stormy Seas Table Runner top done!)

Wonderful Day with Genesee Stars

Genesee Stars Quilt Guild had a workshop on April 20, 2018. She taught the Quiltworx pattern, Stormy Seas, and we had a wonderful day! She was patient with our questions, and offered followup help to finish the project. We would definitely have her come again. Thanks Kathy!

First Time! Signed up for More

This was my first Quiltworx pattern. Kathy made it easy & kept checking in with me after she got me started. Mistakes were easily corrected. I took considerably longer than the 2-6 hours but it came out really well.    I felt like I had the experience to tackle a more complex pattern.   Now I… Read more “First Time! Signed up for More”

I was nervous before I started the Fractured Star quilt class.   Kathy made made it easy!  I loved the step by step instructions.  Maybe the Vintage Rose is next!

Wonderful Class – Talented Instructor

I had a wonderful time learning how to paper-piece the Quiltworx “Seasonal Table Runner”. Kathy is a seasoned instructor and well versed in the Quiltworx philosophy. She presented many additional tips and tricks of the trade that ensure your ability to remember and persevere on your own after the class. Topics covered in addition to… Read more “Wonderful Class – Talented Instructor”

Experienced Paper-Piecer

I had already done a couple of Judy patterns, so I already knew the paper – piecing process. Nevertheless, I still really enjoyed this class.  Everything was OUTSTANDING.

Lots of Shortcuts…

I loved Kathy’s enthusiasm!. The class eval didn’t go high enough — it topped out at “Outstanding”. I learned lots of shortcuts. The class was challenging because I tend to be slower sewing in a group.

Diane P.

Inspired!

I really liked the way you checked in at each table. Everything was outstanding. Your workshop made me get moving again!

Class by Kathy? – Without Hesitation!

I loved the class.  I learned not to be so awed at the idea of the complex process and the many components to this quilt.  Kathy taught us to be methodical and follow the provided instructions. Kathy worked with us every step of the way and stepped in when we made mistakes. While I previously… Read more “Class by Kathy? – Without Hesitation!”

What a Great Class!

5 Stars on everything! She provided superb verbal descriptions of what we needed to do.  Then she was calm, consistent and helpful as we worked through the process.  I  really felt supported. It was just a great class!

Judy K.
Leabu Sewing Center, Ann Arbor, MI

Great class, Can’t wait to take another!

She was very patient, she didn’t ‘over-teach’.  She’d let me try a new technique, but she would catch me before I made a serious mistake by asking me to explain what I was going to do next.   This really helped me understand the process.   She provided lots of little tips along the way…… Read more “Great class, Can’t wait to take another!”

Kathy is a Great Teacher!

Kathy provided clear detailed instruction that did not assume we had ever used that technique before.  We never felt talked down to.  Her class was EXCELLENT !   I know  — I took home finished parts! Thank you Kathy
