May Educator of the Month – Shanna Rendon

April showers bring May flowers… and our Educator of the Month

Shanna Rendon

Shanna Rendon

Shanna has been sewing most of her life, first learning quilting from her grandmother and friends at quilting bees, and then sewing from her mother, her grandmother, school and 4H. Her skills advanced until she could do tailoring and teach Stretch and Sew classes. Then she learned to do machine embroidery, to digitize designs, and to piece quilts correctly. Her quilting method of choice was quilting in the hoop with her embroidery machine, but when the Westalee quilting rulers appeared at her local quilting store, she was enthralled.

She started teaching ruler quilting classes in 2016 at the quilting store followed by Leonie’s Quilt As You Go series multiple times and most of the project classes available from Sew Steady, Continuum, Janet Collins’ patterns, and a few of her own. She taught a three-day event which included a trunk show, beginning ruler class, and ruler template folder project. She has spoken to quilting guilds and taught at a guild rendezvous.


Shanna is known for her clear, informative instruction during her classes as well as being organized, with a good pace so all can follow along and learn the various tips, tricks and new ideas using Westalee Design Templates & Rules.
