close to 20 years of experience in teaching quilting classes,
we usually customize our classes for each group
of students. Among our customers are quilt guilds or quilt
shops that want us to give a weekend class for their members
or customers, and we do a lot of travelling.
Our most popular classes are those based on the triangle
making tool “Magic with Triangles” which is so
versatile that no two classes are exactly the same. We love
good basic skills, but do not hesitate to include new and
time saving techniques whenever appropriate. Fine hand quilting
and clever ways to add borders and binding to the quilt tops
are also among the skills that every serious quilter will
In connection with the release of our book “Hooked
on Triangles” in September 2004, we will visit many
quilt guilds and shops (in Norway) to tell about our book
project and give small classes and/or workshops based on
Magic with Triangles. We are also open to travelling abroad.
Our classes are tailor made for each group whether new to
quilting or more experienced, so tell us what your group’s
level is when booking and we will make you a class built
on your skills.
We are registered teachers with Norsk Quilteforbund (the
Norwegian national quilt guild)
