I have done some informal teaching, leading a friend from start to finish through a lap-sized quilt, and have made an informal quilt tutorial on YouTube for a particularly tricky technique on a National Quilt Museum BOM because no one could find any resources and they were stuck. I have had leadership/teaching experience through my church and through my work as a nurse."
