Just Imagine

Dotty Levine

I have been quilting for more than 25 years and started to Appliqué 20 years ago. Twelve years ago, I started teaching hand Appliqué locally to Quilt Guilds and other groups. I also taught a Block-of-the-Month at our local quilt shop for 10 years.

Appliqué to me is meditation with a needle. Just having a needle and fabric in my hands makes me happy. I have been creating appliqué patterns and find it exciting to teach and share the joy of Appliqué with students. I would love to have you join me so we can go down this enjoyable path together.

Monthly Get-Togethers

We have two Zooms every month. One on the first Thursday of the month and one on the third Saturday. All the Zooms are recorded. Every month there will be two new and exciting patterns. The patterns will be available for you to download. Although the patterns are designed for hand Appliqué, they can be easily adapted for machine and fused Appliqué. Instructions are for hand appliqué. My completed blocks are downloaded on our private Facebook page.

On the third Saturday of the month, we have Q&A and Show & Tell and lots of time for fun and chit chat.
