About The Instructor

Originally from the Chicago area, I have lived in Tucson, AZ for more than 35 years.

I love to quilt and I love to teach. For over 8 years I have enjoyed educating sewers in various quilting methods. I also love notions. Free motion had always been a technique that I just couldn’t get.  Last summer (2015), I discovered the Westalee Design by Sew Steady® ruler foot and templates. I was hooked and now I have conquered a new skill.  Whenever I try something new, I spend some extra time thinking about various ways it can be taught.

I became so enthusiastic about this product, I contacted Sew Steady®. You can now find me demoing Westalee Design by Sew Steady® ruler feet and templates at Quilt Shows and Sewing Expos. I really enjoy meeting fellow quilters. The expression on a customer’s face when they try free motion with a ruler foot for the first time is the highlight of my day.

In store events and classes are another way I connect with quilters; this setting allows a more hands on approach giving customers the tools they need to go home and start quilting.

Why Westalee Design Templates: “Westalee Design  has given me the tools I needed to take my quilting beyond a walking foot. Each template is a starting point that encourages me to challenge my creativity.”

  1. Hi Pam,
    I’m looking to buy the fabric for “Making Applique Easy With Westalee Design Leonies Selection Tempates.” Do you carry all the supplies on your website including the fabric that is in the picture on Sew Steady’s website? Where would I find Meadow 22″ by 5 1/2 and Sky 22″ by 51/2″? I want the exact fabric and designing as the picture. Do I need the special Westalee foot for metallic thread or will the regular one work just as well?
    Thanks for your help, and hope to hear from you soon,

  2. I really enjoy online classes with Pam. I’ve taken her online sampler class, which gave me SO Much confidence to step out of the box and try new things. The next class was the Feather Templates, again I learned how to use the templates I’d had for a year! No matter how many utube videos I watched I couldn’t get them right. Yet Pam being such a great teacher with her online LIVE classes with Q & A after helped me learn them. I certainly look forward to any future classes she has!
