Great news to share with those that have been following my "sew" fun news.


I have been using Accuquilt since the moment I purchased my first sewing machine. It is the tool that got me interested in sewing in the first place after I saw a demo.

Blocks purchased from Raven House Antiques, Downtown Baraboo.

It is something that makes sense, it's practical because I spend more time sewing and makes me happy. It is also the tool that I have used to teach different technqiues to my talented group of quilters since joining Ardyth's Sew n Vac Shoppe. 


Yes, I teach other sewing classes and also use a mat, ruler and rotary cutter but Accuquilt is my favorite tool and one I have shared with friends to use in their quilt assembly process.


In the spirit of following this dream, I will be teaching monthly Accuquilt club as an independent instructor at Nancy's Notions. For those that don't know what Nancy's notions is, think ultimate dream location to get all the sewing and quilting supplies you need in one place and never, ever, want to leave!


Ok, maybe I'm being a little over the top, but seriously, it is a huge honor to be part of this family and still be able to teach in my hometown.


I'm thrilled to be in the company of many talented artists and grateful to learn more about and teach others to use something I have loved since 2009.


A while back I posted about a new die I wanted to use on my next Accuquilt project and I finally purchased it. Follow the link below if you are curious. I met Bill Kerr briefly last year at Quilt Expo. He was there again with Modern Quilt Studio this year. 

I can't wait to use this die with the Drunkard's Path die and create something amazing. 

My favorite technique is curve piecing.

This is all for now. I go back to getting ready for Roberta Condon's pine needle basket weaving class tomorrow (, Barn quilt Classes this Saturday downtown at Ardyth's Sew n Vac Shoppe. There are just a few spaces available if you are interested in joining the fun.


Have a great week in whatever positive endeavor you undertake!
