Here they are!  These are the "first" group of Laura's Certified Teachers and Shop Owners

Each student came to my Certified Teachers and Shop Owners collage class in June of 2018.  They all learned my technique, the supplies and the secrets of making a successful collage quilt!  I spent time with them in my shop explaining how I kit, collage, fold and merchandise collage kits.  You will see them develop their own kits and offer classes using my method!  I am happy to have them as part of my collage team as I cannot possibly travel everywhere and teach everyone my technique.  Help each of these small businesses be successful!
