Comments from Real Students:

I took your class at Keepsake Cottage. It was such a great class. I learned so very much. I enjoy your teaching style. You're friendly, easy going, and I appreciate your "Do it my way just today" way of showing something new and giving permission for individual ways.


"Your knowledge, skills and ability to communicate really benefit all of us."


"I owe everything I know about applique to you. I appreciate the fine standards that you set for us."


On-line learning:

You don't live where you can attend a class in person? Then take a class from me online, in the comfort of your home, at AcademyofQuilting.com Classes are taught on-demand, you start when you are ready, any time! Go ahead, start now!

Here is just one comment from an on-line student:

"I just finished your 3rd lesson. I wanted to tell you how much I thoroughly enjoyed this class. It was the first time I've ever taken a class [on-line]. Your lessons are so great, very easy to understand and follow. I really learned some new things. So thank you for all of your wonderful projects and lessons. I am now hooked on all of it."


I travel to teach where ever I am invited. Sharing my love for hand applique is my greatest pleasure. If you are interested in hiring me to teach in your area at your quilt shop, guild, show, or event, please visit my Workshops and Presentations pages, then see my Rates and Contract. I look forward to talking to you soon.

Piggy-backing is good! If you want me to teach at your shop or guild and see that I will be teaching in your part of the country, contact me to see if additional engagements can be arranged during the same trip. If I'm able to schedule multiple events, then each group shares in my travel expenses. That way EVERYONE WINS!


More Comments from Real Students:

"I can't thank you enough for all I learned. Never have I taken a class where the teacher managed to spend the amount of time that you did with each student! My points have never looked so good! And the extra attention you paid to the beginners was fabulous!"


"You're probably not even on the plane yet, but I have to write and thank you for the wonderful class you taught on 2 Fabric Applique. Your presentation of the material and your teaching style is superb. Thank you for your time and patience teaching us this wonderful technique. You certainly opened my eyes to new possibilities of applique. I look forward to attending another one of your classes in the future."


"I took a class from Nancy many years ago at Quilt Market and I think it was the best class I have ever taken."
