Classes- Teaching

qiadlgoAs a Certified Quilt in a Day Instructor, and Accuquilt Block Design Contest winner two years in a row, I love teaching classes and doing all-day workshops and retreats! I live in Largo, Florida. I am very likable, calm, patient and can teach any Accuquilt, Quilt in a Day or Blue Bear patterns, to a wide range of sewing skills, even those that have never sewn a quilt before. Here is some basic information for shops and guilds, or other organizations.

Please contact me with any special requests.   reed@bluebearquilts.com
