A Note From Laura

Come into my home studio as I show you how to build a house. You are the architect, landscaper, and home decorator—no need to leave your comfortable chair. With fabric, needle, and colorful thread, we create your whimsical house in the woods the easy way with hand embroidery stitches.

Hand embroidery is an art form rich in color and texture. Designs bloom and grow as you create. Join me in a celebration of handwork and stitch this small scene of serenity, your little house in the woods.

Laura’s presentation was filled with energy, creativity, and beautiful quilts. Laura sang and shared her amusing songs with us and showed us her bright, colorful quilts from her large quilt collection. Laura also showed us the steps to creating a fused quilt and her process with fusible web. It was a delightful hour-long presentation, and our members truly enjoyed it.

Infused with Joy

I have taken several classes with Laura over the years. The upbeat mood in each class, the sharing of her contagious enthusiasm made each session a treat and an infusion of joy.


I had the pleasure of taking a class with Laura a few years ago. I came away so inspired.  She has a gift of explaining the techniques in such a pleasing way. The hand-dyed yarns are so yummy. Happy colors and a fun class. Looking forward to more classes and tutorials.
