Hi there! My name is Teresa Kent. I am a former elementary school librarian, quilter and dog mom who lives in the northwest Atlanta suburbs. I like to dabble in all the things fabric related – quilting, garment sewing, home dec, hand embroidery and cross-stitch. I also love to teach others how to sew and explore the geeky side of crafting.
From 2014-2019, I ran a successful maker club for students at two different schools that was funded, in part, by grants and donations, with the rest paid for by me. It was truly a labor of love. My students’ work has been exhibited in the 2015, 2019 and 2022 Georgia Celebrates Quilts show sponsored by the East Cobb Quilt Guild. I have taught children’s and adult sewing classes at Stitch N Quilt, Cottontail Quilts and the Southeast Quilt & Textile Museum (SQTM). I currently teach privately in my sewing studio. Now that COVID fears are easing-up, I am working on classes to be offered at an area quilt shop in late Summer/Fall 2022.
When not behind a sewing machine or lost in a book, you’ll probably find me volunteering with CAREing Paws, a therapy animal group, of which my dog, Sadie, and I are members and a registered R.E.A.D. team (R.E.A.D. stands for Reading Education Assistance Dogs). Sadie and I are also a nationally registered therapy dog team through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD). We read at the local public library, visit schools, colleges, and the local children’s hospital.
