New Instructor: Chris Tibbetts

Chris Tibbetts is a trained and experienced teacher (M.Ed., M.A.) who has taught a variety of disciplines to students of many age groups. Currently, she is employed full-time by Mitchell Community College as an English instructor. Out of a desire to share her love of the art of quilting, Chris also teaches quilting on occasion. She has recently relocated to Mooresville from Asheville, where she worked as Chairperson of the English Department for the local community college and also taught classes for several quilting shops on the side. Chris loves to introduce beginners to the joy of color and design, and is very patient with sewing newbies. Her goal for her quilting students is that quilting should be fun and not stressful. She helps her students quiet their “inner critic” to enjoy the process of learning new sewing skills to express their own creativity through the medium of fabric. Chris will be teaching our new class for beginners (no sewing experience), "First Time Quiltmaking".
