Ami Simms Lecture - How NOT to Make a Prize-Winning Quilt

 ---from Ami's website

I was trained as a teacher, and long ago in another life, I taught second graders. I loved it. After a few years, however, my school district claimed they ran out of students ("declining enrollment") and gave me the boot. I was devastated, but it turned out to be the luckiest day of my life.

I became a professional quilter, combining my two loves: quilting and teaching! After 25+ years on the national circuit I still look forward to every trip. I get to work with people who never fail to inspire me. I only teach subject matter about which I am truly passionate — no spelling or long division — and giggling in class is highly encouraged. I'll show you everything I know as long as you realize there isn't just ONE right way to do anything. You get to pick what works for you.

I am convinced that a life without quilting is pretty dull. Let me show you how much fun quilting can be.
