History of Teaching Venues since 2012

(In alphabetical order for the last 5 years only)

I began teaching in 1982, when I taught my sister, Janice, to make her first Hawaiian quilt. I have been teaching ever since, but you don't want to see the complete list (trust me, it would be very long). So, I am just showing you the guilds and shops I have taught at the past five years (and even that list is plenty long). Use this list to give yourself assurance that I travel wherever I am asked to teach and am frequently invited back, or use this list for references (though some of these shops are now closed).
