I teach at Montavilla Sewing Center‘s Lake Oswego, Oregon location, former home of the Pine Needle Quilt Shop. I also also teach and do trunk shows for quilt guilds. If you are interested in having me teach or do a trunk show, please email me at dawnwhitepdx(at)gmail.com.
*Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all classes at Montavilla Sewing Centers, including the one in Lake Oswego, Oregon where I teach, are canceled for the time being. When classes resume, I will update my teaching schedule.
Upcoming Classes at Montavilla Lake Oswego

Need help starting or finishing a quilt? Stuck on an ongoing project? I’ll offer suggestions and advice while you work on any project you like in a relaxed and supportive setting. You’ll build skills and develop new friendships. All skill levels are welcome! Classes meet once a month for three hours.

Quilter’s Tote Accessories *to be rescheduled
originally scheduled Sundays, June 14 and 28, 2020, 12 noon – 4 pm, $45
How about a suite of accessories to go with your favorite quilter’s tote? In the first class you’ll make a rotary cutter “coat” and a 4″ x 4″ x 4″ fabric box that makes a great threadcatcher and doubles as a small storage container.
In the second class you’ll make a stylish scissors case and a quilter’s tool caddy to hold your favorite small tools. Not only are these wonderful accessories to make for yourself, they also make great gifts.
