Frequently asked questions


Can I use one of your patterns to teach a class?

That being said, I would absolutely love for you to teach one of my patterns but I do ask as a courtesy please contact me before hand and I will offer you printed patterns at wholesale pricing, or create a special discount code for your students to use for PDF downloads. I ask that you please do not purchase one copy of a PDF pattern and print off multiple copies or email to others. I spend a great amount of time on these patterns and it is not okay to distribute content from my site without my permission.

What kind of sewing machine do you use?

I am currently using a Janome Memory Craft 6700P that is on loan to me through Janome America. I have this machine while participating in the Janome Maker program.

I also am the proud owner of a Juki 2100 Q, a Janome Memory Craft 6500P and an entry level Singer sewing machine that I started quilting on in 2010.

What is your favorite method to mark a quilt before quilting?

I am a die hard hera marker fan, these little white pieces of plastic help create a nice slim crease as your guide without permanently marking your project. I also frequently use my walking foot guide and sometimes painters tape if I need to get a straight diagonal line across a quilt.
