Here they are!   Laura's Certified Teachers!

These people attended my Certified Teachers Collage Class.  They were taught my technique, the supplies I endorse and the secrets of making a successful collage quilt!  I spent time with them in my shop explaining how I choose fabrics, kit, collate, 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!  Please contact them if you would like them to teach a class or retreat for you.
