About Judith

I have thirty years of experience in embroidery, smocking, quilting, tatting, knitting and needlepoint. I was a member of the Smocking Arts Guild of America from 1987 through 2005 and a member of the Embroiderers Guild of America from 1997 through 2002.

I have taught individuals knitting in the past and some basic hand piecing techniques to beginning quilting students.

My expertise is in my needlecrafts and I sold embroidered projects at craft fairs for twenty years.

I am friendly, flexible and willing to encourage the next generation in crafters. Please contact me for help with your needlework.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Needlework

I have been knitting since I was age 10 and learned embroidery, quilting, and tatting thirty years ago.

I participated in the Smocking Arts Guild Artisan program but was unable to complete the final steps due to the loss of my primary job, which was unrelated to needlework.

I created embroidered and tatted projects for sale at craft fairs for a 20 year period and sold every thing that I made.

Sewing

I made many of my clothes for years until my regular job did not allow enough time to do so.

I studied fine handsewing for 20 years in seminars given by the Smocking Arts Guild of America. I still make my dresses when I go to special occasions such as a party or wedding.

I also have quilted since 1990 and pieced some quilts by machine and some by hand.

I am familiar with Singer sewing machines.
