My Students

The word student and the individual person make them special. MY students are polite, courteous, curious, enthusiastic, creative and God's little angels. I have the unique opportunity to teach them and expose them to an almost forgotten art, that incorporates math, technology, social skills.

We live in an age of technology and because of this many people fail to see the importance of teaching handicrafts.

The family unit has changes, families live all over the world, and the tradition of passing heritage from one generation to the next is forgotten.

Handwork develops focus and concentration. It encourages

following a process in order to complete a project. It enhances critical thinking and math skills.

It promote healthy, interpersonal relationships between adults and children. This past May, several students broke down crying thanking me for spending time with them, being patience with them, teaching them and teaching them a craft that they love. They told me how something their home life is chaotic, and they just relax with the skills I teach.

My Project

When my students walk through the door, their creative juices begin to follow. They are so excited to know that their is really no right or wrong with their selection of fabrics. Everyone project will be as different and unique, as the person who made it. The art of quilting is an excellent creative outlet, quilting does improve their mental and emotional health. Keeping ourselves mentally and emotionally healthy is related to their overall physical well-being, which is why creative arts like quilting, sewing, and other crafting is so important in our daily lives. This is a stress free environment. Not only does quilting carry on a time-honored tradition of artistry and skill, but it also brings people together and allows them to express themselves using fabric and textile art.

The students will make quilts, pillow cases, T-shirt/Memory quilt, tote bags, microwave bowl, cell/tablet stands, aprons, learn measurement, 1/4 seams, tissue holders, etc.

In order to do this they need supplies.
