Not only is Dara’s quilting creative and beautiful, but the finished quilting matches the theme. I can count on Dara to complete my quilts in a timely manner – usually within a week. Taking a slow-motion course by her is informative and enjoyable as her instructions are clear and she sets a pace that works well for everyone. It’s evident that she loves quilting and loves her customers and students.

Dara is one of those people who change your life in so many ways. She is kind, funny, honest, thoughtful,energetic and very creative. She came to my store all dressed up for a Halloween sale and she stayed ….as a friend and as a creative genius. She has touched the lives of so many women here and took us all on grand adventures in her classes and wth her amazing, crazy talent. She is my forever friend.
