HELENA FOOIJ

Helena has been managing our Block of the Month program for several years

option. Although she came to us as a hand piecer she now dabbles in all areas

including appliqué!

Cath brings a strong history of hand work and reproduction style quilts

but over the years has managed to cross over to the most modern

techniques and palettes with designer flair.  Once our Friday manager,

she is now teaching Chuck Nohara and soon a beginner class.

 

 

MEGAN MANWARRING

valued teachers at Material Obsession.  Her attention to detail,

skilled eye for color and her professional manner make her a

perfect teacher with full classes from beginner to advance appliqué.

Grace is our beginner teacher. Her kind and gentle nature combined with

years of teaching experience make her a welcome addition to our staff this year.

Grace has been managing the introduction of quilting in the evening classes

through the year and has set many a beginner off

and running in a short amount of time.
