with Courtenay Hughes
Courtenay Hughes has been quilting for more than 20 years and working in the industry for more than 15. After teaching herself quilting, Courtenay went to work at her local quilt shop. With co-workers as wonderful mentors, her skills increased, her confidence grew, and she eventually became an instructor, as well as the pattern designer and owner at Chip and Dale Designs. Courtenay's favorite part of teaching is when her students' eyes light up and they realize that yes, they can (and will) succeed.
