Instructor: Christy Riblett
Instructor Bio: My passion for sewing and quilting started after an 8th grade Home Ec class. I loved it so much that I spent hours in the local fabric store planning my next project which led the owner to offering me a summer job. Throughout the years I have honed my skills be taking classes from various teachers around the area. I myself have taught preschool and kindergarten for 15 years and several levels of bible classes for 30 years. I love meeting a young person that just got their first sewing machine and leading them through this wonderful craft. Recently I purchased a midarm and quilting frame and my learning curve took another steep climb! My day isn't complete if I haven't made it to my sewing room. Sewing has given me much joy and peace walking through the different paths of my life.
