I’m Teresa Coates, a sewing educator,  quilt maker, travel writer, pattern designer and relentless adventurer. I’m here to help you fall in love with sewing. I design sewing and quilting patterns with beginners in mind and bridge the divide between sewing and quilting. Crinkle Dreams pattern are available from me for both retail and wholesale; here are a few of the stores that carry my sewing and quilting patterns.

Currently, I work with ByAnnie.com, assisting both Annie and local quilt shops. For four years, I was the host of Sew Together Tuesday, a live, instructional show for Shannon Fabrics that feels like an in-person workshop, except that it’s on YouTube! In 2021, we launched Sew Together Tuesday: On the Road and spent more than a year visiting quilt and fabric shops across the country, turning it into The Great American Shop Hop , which I continue to do any chance I get.

If you’re looking for quilt guild presentations, lectures and sewing/quilting workshops, send me a message. I’d love to hear from you!
