I'm a quilter, author, teacher, publisher, speaker, videographer. I live in Alaska in the summer and travel in my RV in the winter. I make quilts, write books, self-publish, teach, and lecture professionally at craft trade shows. I maintain several websites and have a talent for marketing.

I am an Alaskan author of 7 books. My first book was an active title with F&W Media for ten years. I have successfully self-published 6 books (print and e-book formats). I am a national quilt teacher and my specialty is quilt-as-you-go and ergonomics. I am a professional lecturer on both Self Publishing for Craft Professionals and Video Marketing. I am YouTube Partner, with over 2.5 million views and more than 13,000 subscribers.
When I’m not home in Alaska I’m on the road in my RV, traveling and teaching quilting or speaking at craft industry shows or just sitting in the desert looking at the sand and stars. In Alaska I squeeze writing and quilting in between the demands of supporting a commercial salmon fishing family.
I created The Quilter’s Calendar to connect quilt guilds with teachers who travel. I am on a mission to make it easier for guild program chairwomen to find and contract traveling quilt teachers.
