Press and Projects

Television: 

Quilting Arts TV:  Episodes 1409, 1413, and 1509, filmed with the fantabulous Susan Brubaker Knapp. For each segment, I demonstrated a different project created just for the show.

 

 With Susan Brubaker Knapp, a spectacular host and guide!

 

 

 

Carrie Bloomston was on the same episode- boy is she talented and has great stage presence!

 

 

Books:

There's a book by La Todera!  It's called 'Adventures in Fabric, La Todera Style,' published by Stash Books, a division of C&T publishing. 

I was incredibly honored to have book reviews by both Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably included on the back cover of my book.  Not only do I consider them my idols and mentors, but I am a superfan of their fabrics, which play a huge part in this book.

 

Here's a video promotion, shot by Brewer Sewing:

I was also fortunate enough to be a contributor to another C&T book, 'Make-Pincushions, 12 Darling Projects to Sew.'

 

Teaching:

 I'm honored to have been an instructor at The Houston Quilt Festival:
