Quilt Patch Teachers
Jane LeBlanc, a retired pharmacist, has been a serious quilter since 2010. She loves taking classes, meeting other quilters and seeing what they're making. Jane started officially teaching quilting classes at Quilt Patch in June 2017, although she had already stepped in as a substitute teacher whenever needed. Many of Jane's classes feature gentle curves made easy with the Quick Curve ruler. Jane is married with two grown sons.
Kay Giese has been a longarm quilter for over 12 years and has quilted more than 10,000 quilts during her longarming career. Kay's focus turned to teaching with the idea of die cutting the students' fabric choices rather than students purchasing a pre-selected kit. Classes include the opportunity for you to use the die cut machine yourself or you can have Kay cut it for you ahead of time for a small fee. Imagine beautiful, perfectly cut kits with your own favorite fabrics! No worrying about rotary mistakes or painstaking templates - just sit down and sew. Join Kay in her wonderful world of die cut quilts!
Deborah Young has been quilting since 1994. She manages Quilt Patch Fabrics, creates commission quilts, designs and publishes her own line of patterns and recently designed and printed her first fabric panel. Deborah started teaching in 2005 and loves seeing the different vision each student has of a single pattern. Her classes range from basic techniques for beginners to new techniques for the intermediate quilter to adventures in collage quilting with a few bags, wallets and other fun little items thrown in. Deborah's favorite quilts are "sofa sized," because they are easy to decorate with and work up quickly. Her favorite quilt patterns look difficult but are secretly simple to make.
