Instructor

Brunner, Belle
Belle Brunner began quilting in her mid-40's at the onset of the pandemic of 2020 and quickly fell in love with the craft. In 2021, after taking an intensive pattern writing course, she began designing and publishing patterns. She focuses on confident beginner patterns and techniques and believes that all people, of any age, can learn to quilt. Having spent years helping non-profits and boards of directors, Belle expanded her Seams Sew Me business to also specialize in providing leadership, governance, consulting and education for quilt guilds’ boards of directors. She believes that strong inclusive guilds contribute to strong communities. She leads and teaches with her two leading values: of compassion and understanding.
