Since retiring from teaching middle school in 2017, I have been quilting more, and sharing my quilts with others who love quilts and quilting. I design most of my own quilts, and love creating on fabric with different mediums, Jacquard decolorant in particular. I love to share and tell the stories that go with my quilts, and if I can teach you something and make you smile at the same time, it makes my day.

"OMG!! One of the most entertaining speakers we've had in a long time!! Colleen had us entertained and in stitches with her songs, her stories, and her quilts! What a fantastic speaker!"

"Funniest and most entertaining presenter I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Great stories straight from her life" Colleen, you did it again - entertained us, made us laugh, and shared your wonderful quilts. I heard a comment that I want to share: "I've heard her twice and I could just come back and hear her again tomorrow. Such a good time!"
