about me

 I’m Teresa, a maker and writer with a penchant for sewing, quilting, teaching, and adventure.

These days I’m working for Shannon Fabrics in Los Angeles, California as the National Education Coordinator, planning and teaching at educational events nationwide  in addition to managing educational and material support for small quilt shops and fabrics stores.

I also write and design my own patterns for both Crinkle Dreams and national magazines.

My quilts and sewing projects have appeared in BustQuilty, StitchQuiltmakers’ 100 Quilt Blocks, Generation Q and American Quilt Retailer and I have spoken at both local and national conventions about topics as varied as social media marketing for quilt shop owners, divorced mothers and shared housing.

I am available for quilt guild presentations, lectures and sewing/quilting workshops. If you think we’d work well together, I’d love to hear from you!
