Carla and her quilting companion - the infamous Westie, Brody

From Carla...

I am a traditional quilt teacher by trade and therefore regularly teach both in my home studio and at the local quilt shop. Through this work, I have honed my teaching skills, drawing on my background as a community college teacher. I strive to create a fun, engaging, and dynamic learning environment, adapting to the interests and strengths of each group both from class to class and within each class. My success at the local level has opened opportunities for me to travel throughout Ontario as an invited teacher and lecturer for numerous guilds and groups.
