Westalee Design Accredited Teacher
About The Instructor
My sewing and textile journey began as a 12-year-old and first year high school student. I had an inspirational textiles teacher at school and my interest and education continued from there. Quilting came later and have only been doing it for about 15 years but have always loved to sew. Since beginning patchwork and quilting, I have tried various techniques, though have always wanted to complete the whole process from start to finish. Having come across the Westalee quilting rulers, I began to see how I could achieve the final major part of quilting myself. I took a couple of classes and was hooked. It has now become something that I am passionate about and inspired to share with others.
Having always been a “sewer”, I have always had a passion for textiles and for making items from them. Quilting is something I fell into and have loved it and loved sharing what I have learnt. I get a lot of satisfaction from enabling others to create. Teaching I also fell into through a friends business “The Quilt Fairy” who required someone (me) to help her with teaching. I took an online course “cert4 in Training and Assessment”, (for another reason) and found that it applied to the teaching I was doing within my hobby. After which I discovered the Westalee Quilting Rulers when they were released and have been using ever since their release. From there I decided to make it a small business, which is where I am today.
