Quilters Cupboard has a great group of passionate teachers who will guide you on your quilting journey. Whether you are new to quilting or interested in learning new skills, our teachers will be there to support you every step of the way.
Leianne started this wonderful thing we call our quilting hobby when she moved to Ontario in 2001. In addition to working at Quilters Cupboard, she is excited to share her knowledge through classes, quilt shows, workshops and trunk shows for Quilt Guilds
Leianne’s discovery of the accuracy of the Studio 180 Design rulers and love of Lemoyne Star quilts are a perfect fit for sharing with students. Some might call her “star obsessed”, and they don’t mean movie stars!
Leianne brought Tucker University to Quilters Cupboard in fall of 2017 and has developed a following of enthusiast students eager to learn how to use their collection of Studio 180 Rulers to their fullest potential!
Maddie started quilting in 2007 and was instantly hooked. The first class she taught was “How to Make a Rag Quilt” but she soon discovered appliqué, big stitch, embroidery and working with wool. Given a choice between a project with a sewing machine and something involving handwork, Maddie will choose handwork every single time!
Maddie finds inspirations from the works of other crafters on Pinterest and that encourages her desire to create her own designs (although that’s still a “Work in Progress”!) Maddie rarely makes anything according to the pattern. She always likes to add her own flair – after all, the original pattern has already been done.
Maddie is excited to be introducing Punch Needle Classes starting in the Fall!
Are you looking to add some flair to your projects, then Tammy might just be the teacher for you!
With her bag classes, Tammy focuses on modern and stylish bags from Swoon that are a stylish addition to any bag lover’s collection. Her Rolled Up Tote Classes (featuring her very own pattern) are always in high demand.
Tammy is a long arm quilter and shares her quilting expertise in several free motion quilting classes. She will help you move beyond ‘quilting in the ditch’ and start to bring your quilting up a notch of two! Do you have a ‘Fear of Binding’? Tammy will even help you to conquer that too with her “Finishing School” class.
Tammy’s not just a quilter… if you’ve been admiring the new look in the store in recent months, it’s because of Tammy! This summer she’s been locked in the classroom and has been working away at bringing a fresh look in there.
