Hi I'm Pam Varner, Westalee Design Accredited Teacher, and Owner of My Sassy Notions.

I love to quilt and I love to teach. For over 10 years I have enjoyed educating sewers in various quilting methods. I also love notions. Free motion has always been a technique that I just couldn’t get. In the summer (2015), I discovered the Westalee Design by Sew Steady® ruler foot and templates. I was hooked and now I have conquered a new skill. Whenever I try something new, I spend some extra time thinking about various ways it can be taught.

Why Westalee Design Templates: “Westalee Design has given me the tools I needed to take my quilting beyond a walking foot. Each template is a starting point that encourages me to challenge my creativity.”
