HoopSisters Diamond Skill Builder Shop Exclusive is very versatile! Each block builds a skill to be applied to the next block.

 Richard’s passion for sewing began at a very young age, learning early on how to cut out quilt pieces for his family of quilters. It seemed only natural that he would end up becoming a quilter as well with a keen eye for design in quilts that fall into the art quilt category. As a Hoffman Challenge winner in 2017, Richard’s quilt, “The Sisters” was part of a travelling trunk show. His “Learn, Inspire, Create” concept is evident in his teaching style and one that he loves to pass along to his students. Richard had taught all over the US and Canada and looks forward to each opportunity to connect with his students.
