Since my travel teaching schedule has been derailed by 2020, I’ve decided to embrace a new adventure. I’ll be present quilt guild trunk shows and workshops via Zoom. I’ve never used Zoom and I’ve never even made a PowerPoint presentation. But there’s no time like the present! I’m determined to learn everything I can and if I make a fool of myself it won’t be first time. LOL

If your quilt guild or group is scheduled for a visit from me, or you would like to have me visit via Zoom, please email me at butterflythreadsquilting at gmail dot com or leave a comment with your contact information.

I’m super exited to share my trunk shows featuring my books SCRAP QUILT SECRETS and STRIP QUILT SECRETS as well as my fun presentation of IF QUILTS COULD TALK that includes some published quilts as well as many from my private collection.

The first workshops I plan to prepare for teaching via Zoom will be my most popular UNDER THE MISTLETOE and LIME TWIST.  I’ll be adding others on an ‘as needed’ basis.

The part of my job that’s most rewarding is meeting and spending time with amazing quilters, so I’m very sad that hasn’t happened since March but maybe this will be the next best thing. Who knows, maybe I’ll learn so much I can even offer online classes and videos? There’s just no telling what we will all learn before 2020 is over.

Until then, enjoy every stitch and wash your hands!

PS. Buddy (shown in top photo) is currently recovering  from a torn cruciate (doggie ACL). We are hoping to avoid surgery and we truly appreciate all of the kind messages and love that have been sent his way. I've read them all to him and I can tell he is thankful, and so am I!


  1. I love how you dive into each new adventure. So fearless!:)

  2. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it quickly. I figure if others can do it, so can you!

  3. Looking forward to seeing your presentation at my RI guild!
