Want to Spend Time With Veronica?

So Friday we gave you two sizes of the pineapple block as our Friday Freebie and told you that if  you checked back, we'd tell you why we gave you the two sizes ... Well, we wanted to give you a peek into Veronica's teaching and lecture world which includes a program on miniature quilts.

Veronica, owner of Bear Thread Designs, Inc., has taught quilting classes and provided lectures for more than 12 years. She has traveled extensively, teaching a variety of classes and speaking to guilds and groups on miniatures and fusible applique using The Applique Pressing Sheet.

For the miniatures lectures, Veronica shows a variety of  quilts ranging in technique, size and difficulty. Her lectures includes up to 60 quilts which is only a tenth of what she has, allowing for a revolving variety for those who participate in the program.

Veronica also teaches a number of different classes and provides lectures on fusible applique, particularly fusing various fibers, threads, scraps, organza, and Angelina and Crystallina fibers to create Art Quilts.

Many of her miniature quilts also feature her applique technique. She has demonstrated the technique at quilt shows, quilt shops, cruises, quilt guild meetings, and on television. Veronica and The Applique Pressing Sheet has been featured on America Quilts Creatively in numerous series, and she has taped a segment with Quilter's News Network.

Veronica's most popular lecture, Take a Walk on the Wild Side, uses The Applique Pressing Sheet and Batiks to create raw edge applique quilts. This lecture also includes about 60 quilts, featuring wild life, sea life and jungle animals as well as a variety of flower and whimsical quilt patterns. 

Veronica's favorite class is call Pick a Chick, where participants pick from a variety of Debbie Hubbs patterns to learn the raw edge applique technique.

Veronica is always looking for more groups and guilds interested in having her provide a class or lecture. You can get a complete list of classes by contacting her. If you are interested in scheduling Veronica for a lecture, trunk show or class, please send an email to or call (281) 462-0661.
