I teach quilting because it has the capacity to make people feel good and better about themselves with some basic tools and materials. Quilting had made me a stronger and more confident person. Within the Kick-Ass Quilts College, I've created quilting and teaching methods anyone can follow. All of this based on using materials you already own. This is the most creative, interesting and sustainable way to create quilts.
My methods are rooted in the rich tradition of quilting of make do. These days overconsumption is ruling the day, and that is neither sustainable, nor conducive for creativity.
With Kick-Ass Quilts I am taking the roots of quilting back to the modern day. Making it relevant for a new generation of quilters!
