Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I am a busy, outgoing artist with a passion for quilting and creating! I am an award-winning quilter and a well-known teacher, lecturer in the quilting industry. Born and raised in Long Island,NY,living in Berks County for the past 20 years, recently returning to NY. I have traveled and taught at quilt shows,quilt guilds and quilter's gatherings as well as other quilting events on the east coast and Canada. I bring a fresh outlook to my classes and techniques, and encourage students to be progressive and innovative.
I sincerely enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others; my enthusiasm for the art and dynamic personality are contagious, and bring a positive sense of energy to all of my classes and gives students confidence. My work is collected by private collectors and corporations and she has received awards locally, regionally and nationally for color, design, hand and machine workmanship. Teresa wants you to feel the passion she feels when she is planning a quilt.

Hi Teresa thanks for responding. I purchased my pfaff performance 5.0 at sew time in Queens and I love it. I also have a passport. I haven't joined any groups as of yet. I will search the groups and take your suggestion.
Nice to meet you, Teresa. Yes, I still quilt...have been since the early 80's. I love doing paper piecing, and right now I am going crazy doing Jelly Roll quilts. I also purchased an Accu Quilt fabric cutter, and I have been having a lot of fun using that. What are your interest in the world of quilting? Grace
Remember me? I'm w/ NSQG and had lunch w/ you at Lancaster. I'm going through all of the 106 pages of quilters to see if I know anyone and your name/face just popped. And your quilts are amazing. So good to see them.
No, I do not come that often. I took photos of the lighthouse and then printed on cottom material I used Computer Printer Fabric by June Tailor. Yes, I love my quilts. I have never made two alike and have given them all away except two. But I will have my sister go by the shop when she can. Thanks, Peggy
What a small world! It must have been at least 12 years ago, that some quilting friends and I travelled to Lancaster, and we made a detour to visit the shop in Oley. We were so impressed with the shop that we made a 2nd trip a year or two later, when the shop had a new owner. You were in the shop both times we were there.
My husband and I travel down to Lancaster at least once a year so I can stock up on quilting supplies( the US has a much better selection of fabrics, and better prices!) I'll have to look up those shops you mentioned for our next trip.
