workshops

Let's spend some time together! My workshops are PACKED full of inspiration and no-nonsense techniques. I promise you will be a changed quilter after EACH experience (doesn't that sound good?) 

Here's some feedback from gals that have taken some of my workshops . . .

"Oh man, where does one begin. Her instructions are so clear that I don't think I have ever scratched my head and said "Huh?". I love that Sharon doesn't think that a quilt can't be done by a beginner, that ANYONE can quilt." 

Kathy, Lethbridge AB

"I have taken several classes from Sharon. Her teaching style is a great combination of insight, tips, and hands on learning. I highly recommend her classes and I look forward to taking more."

Joan, Airdrie AB

"Sharon is teaching all the time. She has a wealth of experience and expertise. Once, while popping in to pick up a quilt, Sharon took the time to share with me both pressing instruction and a sewing technique she was using for constructing log-cabin blocks. Sharon is a generous and enthusiastic teacher!"

Connie, Airdrie AB

"Sharon provides detailed step-by-step instructions as well as numerous videos sharing techniques. Sharon is always available to support and answer any question, big or small. She is an amazing instructor who's creative spark has no limits!!" Kim, Houston BC
