Studio Coaching

When you need a trainer who knows a sewing machine better than a rowing machine.

Life is busy, you are busy and waiting for the right workshop, finding the right book or even the right online video takes time and energy that could be put to a more constructive use. Susan is offering one-on-one coaching sessions in her light, airy studio. (If you like to collaborate, bring up to three friends.)

You’ll love the new way your quilts look and never have to worry about having the right materials again! Your quilting repertoire will grow dramatically by learning these surface design techniques. And Susan sets the schedule around your schedule. Susan has put together a solid list of tightly focused topics that can be well covered in 2 – 4 hours.


Coaching Session Details: Each session is $30 per hour for one to four people with a minimum of 2 hours. If you want Susan to provide supplies, add $5 per hour per student. Chocolate provided at no charge!
