Hey Y'all ... I'm Yvette.png

I teach quilters how to build their confidence with new techniques.

So glad you're here!  Hands up if you want to do all the things.  Yep.  Me, too.  I've been quilting for over 20 years and I'm consistently learning.  My fave technique is Foundation Paper Piecing. Of course, I love traditional piecing, too.  But FPP is my jam.  I taught myself and I can teach you, too.  I've got some mad skills, y'all!  I've spent the past few years building up a community of quilters who love and support each other.  I hope you're here to stay and become part of my tribe.

Meet Yvette

I started quilting in 2001, soon after we moved to Connecticut.  I just decided to do it and bought a Baby Lock Ellure.  I went to a class to learn how to use my machine and then mostly taught myself how to quilt.  Jim and I lived in Sydney, Australia from 2012-2015.  I quilted while in Sydney, but not very much.

Upon returning to the US, my quilting mojo really kicked in.  I started a YouTube channel, where I was a prolific un-boxer and influencer.  Eventually I focused my channel mainly on quilting and finally to Foundation Paper Piecing.  I taught myself to FPP and now I teach others.  I have a small online quilt shop and I've started my own quilting retreats to teach FPP and have fun doing it!

I've built a wonderful quilting community and thrive on seeing others succeed at things they thought they couldn't do.  I love to teach!
