Karena Wells

[sample] As a lifelong artist with a passion for teaching, quilting and working with textiles, Karena Wells added making tuffets to her repertoire. In March 2015, Karena traveled to North Carolina to study the process, and she is now a Tuffet Source Affiliate.  

Karena enjoys traveling and will take tuffet classes on the road to an area near you. Not interested in a class? Contact Karena to make a custom tuffet for you!

Soon she will have a home base in the Pacific Northwest. She also regularly teaches classes at Ghost Ranch, in Abiquiu New Mexico. Please email her for class location requests.

Kerin Ferrin

In the spring of 2018 when I published an inquiry for interested teachers, Kerin Ferrin responded immediately with enthusiasm, energy and excitement.  My vision and Kerin’s previous experience as a program affiliate were beautifully aligned.  After many conversations and brainstorming sessions filled with ideas and spirit, Kerin and I set out to co-create a comprehensive Gem Affiliate program – “teach the teacher” retreats to build a dynamic team of quilting instructors certified to teach in-person classes based on my gemstone quilt patterns.

Prior to adding gem quilts to her menu of classes, Kerin was an early adopter in the tuffet business just as tuffets were taking the quilting world by storm.  In 2014, Kerin travelled to North Carolina to become one of the first members of the Tuffet Source Affiliate Program. She became one of the most successful Tuffet Source Affiliates in the country, teaching more than 100 classes in 14 shops throughout New Hampshire and Maine.

Kerin has become a valued part of my team. In addition to assisting me with Gem Affiliates and another Gem Affiliate program scheduled for April 2019, Kerin will be teaching both Birthstone Series Block of the Month and technique classes in New England beginning in January of 2019. Kerin has been teaching quilting since 2009, and lives in Rye, New Hampshire with her family.

Please contact Kerin to schedule a gemstone class today!
