Important Pointers from Becky!

I always recommend that you wash your fabric in the washer and dry it in the dryer before you begin. Watch my videos and you will see that there is more to this decision than you might think.

Hand sewing is easier if you have the right tools for the job at hand. I’ll show you a variety of tools that make hand quilting easier, including marking tools, needles, thread.

There are lots of options when it comes to finding the best thimbles, protectors, and finger protectors to protect your fingertips and I’ll show you a wide variety so that you can choose what will work best for you.

If you have not hooped up yet, now is the time to try hand quilting!

Think calm thoughts, be kind to yourself, and before long you will be hand quilting as if you have always known how. -Becky

Hear from Becky's Skillful Students

Great for All Ages

My mom and I took an appliqué class of Becky’s at the 2010 NQA Quilt show in Columbus, OH.

It was such a delight to see all those instructions in the Piece o Cake books come to life!

It was a very informative class....and taught by a very personable instructor!  For us, that class was the high point of the show!!!


Becky is a warm, informal speaker, and at the same time very organized. We were impressed with her careful allotment of time to each phase of building our Bullseye panels, giving clear instruction, then having you come back together for each section to be fully explained and questions answered.

You come away with confidence to finish your Bullseye, but also collect so many tips and suggestions from her lifetime experience as an educator, author and business owner.

A thoroughly positive experience!

Trust a Pro

Becky is not only a friend but one of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is upbeat and always supportive of her students. She offers help and encouragement to everyone in her classes.

Becky gives clear and easy-to-follow instructions in class and she shows you exactly what you need to see to be successful. She listens to her students, and answers questions thoughtfully. Becky’s students finish class with big smiles on their faces and confidence in themselves.
