Diane Stoffel, Brewster, MA
 Diane’s color sense makes this a great class.  She is most comfortable color planning and is more than willing to share her knowledge with you. Her enthusiasm is contagious and you will have a rug you love when finished. She is a McGown certified teacher and ATHA member who is at ease with all cuts from fine to wide and with all types of designs or patterns. Her talent shines with all rugs.

Carrie Martin, Covington, LA
Carrie’s enthusiasm will make the class fly by.  She makes color planning easy to understand. She will be sharing her secrets to putting together handbags and dolls.  Her mini lessons are a hit. Your needs will be her needs. Another McGown certified teacher that will work on any project of your choosing, but loves those wide cut floral, geometrics, orientals.

  1. How exciting for you to have such great teachers coming! We had Diane in Utah a couple years ago and she was awesome. I'm not familiar with Carrie so I'll have to look at her website.....
