More workshops are to be added and repeated in 2024, such as Korean Bogaji and Osage Ribbonwork.
My workshops are dedicated to fabrics that have already been worn and used. (One exception is Hawaiian Appliqué and Osage Ribbonwork.) They are full of traces of life and continue to be used. The sewing traditions have their origin in the creative and sustainable use of our resources.
The stitching classes are designed to get you excited about hand sewing and deepen your knowledge of the fantastic history of textiles from different parts of the world.
The hand stitching classes of 'The Power of Quilting Workshops' draw their inspiration in craft traditions from around the world. Enjoy hand sewing as a personal experience! It is an intimate and creative process that is organic and has a relaxed concentration as its foundation. This cultural practice, thousands of years old, is rarely used or taught anymore.
These courses aim to change that. All courses are suitable for beginners and advanced students alike.

Working with textile materials goes back to our oldest cultural techniques and textiles were - and still are - made for each other and with each other. In their history, women are the protagonists and are hardly ever told.
Please note: In my sewing courses and workshops, the focus is on the respective craft methods and not on a design concept. The design aspects result from these processes. I do my best to take individual personal stylistic preferences into account. You should not expect a complete result at the end of the sewing courses. Instead, you will find guidance and inspiration, gain some practical experience and develop a solid understanding of how to proceed on your own.
