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.
Upcoming Classes at Montavilla Lake Oswego
I am thrilled to report that in-store classes are resuming in September 2021 after a 17-month interruption caused by the coronavirus. Students are required to wear masks per store policy. Although the shop does not require that students be vaccinated, I have requested that only students who are fully vaccinated register for my classes.
Sew with Dawn
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.
