Designing applique patterns and teaching my timesaving applique technique has become a major part of my life. There are many applique techniques, and all of my designs can be easily converted to use the method of your choice.

Needle- turn applique technique is my preference because it is so forgiving. The needle is used to to turn the edges under so there is very little "prep work" envolved. The results is a soft rolled edge that gives wonderful dimension to your finished project. Please contact me for  information about visiting your Guild for a trunk show and personalized workshop.

The web shopping pages offer applique patterns, kits, block of the month kits and notions. My hope is that my patterns give you inspiration and enjoyment.
