I am a sewing 101 teacher and I love to refer the first time sewers to Diana Rupp’s Sewing Studio as homework for when they leave my class! It is really a great class for building up skills!

I would love to find someone in my area to help me learn to quilt. I think that this would be great to do, unfortunately I’ve looked into some groups in Louisville and they meet in the summers when it’s inconvenient. Once school start it will help with football schedule running.

Thanks if anyone can help me.
