Thank you for your interest in my lectures and workshops. After 37 years of nearly full-time travel I decided to grow some roots, and created a wonderful studio and workshop center in Paducah Kentucky where we offered workshops from 2006-2014.

In January of 2013 I married Dr. Ron Gentry, and in June of 2014, we sold the Paducah studio and moved, full time, to Port Townsend, Washington. Pictures of the new studio are available on our NEWS page.

I have retired from teaching hands-on classes, but I will still consider doing lectures and seminars if I am in your area. I will be traveling in conjunction with my solo exhibitions (see schedule).

I will continue to share what I have learned through my patterns, instructional brochures, and complete workshops on CD. My fabrics, patterns, and workshops on CD are now available through Joy's Fabric and Quilts and Paper Pieces, the folks who bought my building in Paducah.
