About The Instructor

My name is Carol Ockerman, owner and operator of Sew Ease, which provides personalized
sewing and quilting lessons for individuals who want to learn the basics to those who are
amazing and want to enhance the skills they already have. This includes quilting ruler work
using the Westalee Design / Sew Steady products.

I cannot remember a time in my childhood where I was not sitting at the sewing tables of my
mother or grandmother. Having learned from them the skill of fabric piecing and apparel
making, I completed – and wore to school – my first outfit when I was only 9 years old! Yes,
I’ve been sewing ever since and it is one of my great passions.

I have sewn countless bridal and evening gowns, hand-crafted veils, sewn for entire bridal
parties, crafted infant and baby crib ensembles, sewn heirloom christening gowns, ballet and
recital costumes. For more than a decade I’ve embraced and love sharing the art of quilting.
Proficient in a variety of quilting methods, I especially favor patchwork and hand-appliqué
Having found the Westalee Design / Sew Steady product line and techniques has been a true
blessing. I endeavor to share my knowledge and skills in this field when and where I can. I
enjoy teaching people of all skill levels, and want to encourage promotion of this proud and
historic art.

  1. I took the Quilting Made Easy Party Class in Conroe Texas at the Sew & Vac Store where Carol was the teacher. She went over how to properly use the Crosshair ruler and I know understand the importance of this tool!! We were able to do several designs which Carol taught us. She is amazing–very clear in her instructions, makes everything so easy to do!! She made the class very fun and you felt like you were definitely accomplishing something.
    I would definitely take another class with Carol as the instructor.

  2. I took the Quilting Made Easy Party Class with Carol. It was wonderful. Carol did a great job explaining how to use different rulers to enhance your project; she was patient and her demonstrations were great. I would definitely take another class from her anytime! I understand how to use the rulers so much better than just trying to do this on my own.
    She had a great camera which enabled the class to see what she was doing.
    I am ready for the next class!!

  3. Enjoy the class I took last week with Carol. She was very good at explaining how use the templates and demonstrating how to use them. Loved her show and tell. Great ideas for how to use the templates in many different ways. Now I feel comfortable in using the templates that I bought at Festival last year.

  4. Hi, Carol, I am the Program Coordinator for 2021 for the New Braunfels Area Quilt Guild. I am just getting started with the planning for 2021 and wonder if you do presentations for quilt guilds and teach classes for guilds. NBAQG has monthly meetings with presentations from artists and teachers during the meeting. We have the capability for full day 6 hour or half day 4 hour classes. I’m excited to find someone locally and look forward to hearing from you.
