Krista teaching


I am teaching all over the place! Check the listings for a location close to you.



Lecture/Trunk Show:

Diamonds are a Quilter's Best Friend

Krista tells her story, how she started very young and went on to design her own quilts and patterns.  She typically works in design concepts and color theory while showing different quilts. She loves to do Q&A if there’s time! It's always a crowd-pleaser. About one hour, plus Q & A.


Two-day classes: Bumblebee Blossoms, The Wreath Quilt Sampler, Fanfaire, Snowflake Lane, Fresh Fruit.

One-day classes: any pattern except the two-day patterns above can be taught as a one-day Workshop.

Workshops are usually six hours long. Krista can accommodate 30 to 40 students in a Zoom class, and 25 to 30 students in person.

Call the quilt shops below to inquire about lessons or buying patterns


An evening Trunk Show and 2 or more days of full-day Workshops are required for Krista to travel, plus all the travel costs. The Zoom lectures and Workshops are also very popular.
