I have been reading for a few days and thought that it was time to introduce myself. Sewing since elementary school and quilting for about 30 years. Love to write patterns and teach. Have attended the same retreat (where I teach) for 20 years.
Other huge interests are gardening and knitting. Aerospace engineer by day. Creative diva by night. Very patient DH.
Question: I need references for a brand new quilter. Normally I would just go on over and help her out, but it is a 30 mile drive each way and so am trying to help her virtually. She loves step by step instructions (my teaching style) and so I am looking for books or online resources that will suit her style. Helped her make a pillowcase about 3 years ago. It was her first sewing project and she has kept my contact info since. Life has settled for her and so now is her time to learn.
