2020 - 2021 Class Offerings

The following are the full day and half day classes I am currently teaching.  I am happy to talk with you about customizing classes for your group.  I am also available for a lecture/trunk show of my quilts.  Please email me at jacquietps@gmail.com for information on rates and availability. My calendar of events is under the Schedule tab on the blog.  Please read below for class descriptions and to see sample quilts. 
I am currently adapting all of these classes into a virtual format. All lectures are available virtually through Zoom as well.

Lecture/Trunk Shows

Intuitive and Outsider Design
Learn Jacquie's design philosophy, process and influences as she shares stories and quilts in this entertaining and informative lecture/trunk show.



Finding My Voice: An Artist's Journey
With a trunk show of quilts Jacquie will share how she continued her journey to find and develop her artistic voice and how she continues to grow and change as an artist. In this lecture Jacquie gives you a peek into how she works, what she studies and the results of those processes. 

Quilting: An Essential Design Element
Jacquie will share her quilts in this special trunk show that focuses not only on the pieced design, but on how quilting can be used to support, enhance and complement the piecing to create a cohesive, effective composition. Jacquie will highlight walking foot quilting but the principles she shares will apply to whatever quilting method you prefer.


No Pucker Walking Foot Quilting
Jacquie will share her tips and tricks for quilting with the walking foot and achieving satisfying results with no puckers! Along with the great advice, Jacquie will add a mini trunk show to show you what's new in the studio and what's she's been working on lately.


Quilt your quilts beautifully with the walking foot.
