Introducing Roxane Lessa

Hi, I'm Roxane Lessa, the Art Quilters Coach, aka fiber artist and teacher, aka mother of 2 girls.  I live and work part time at my art quilt coaching  and teaching, I make art quilts and I work part time in a local BERNINA store in Raleigh, NC.

Q:  Do you have your own studio or do you work wherever you can find a spot?  What is your favorite and least favorite feature of your work space?
A:  I have my own studio, which I wish had more natural light.  My favorite feature is my Bernina 750 QE, and a closet for most of my supplies.

Q:  Do you offer a professional service?
A:  Why yes I do!  I offer a private art quilting program for quilters who want to take their art quilting seriously.  This is a 6 month program called the Private Art Quilt Mastery Program.  I work with students from afar by live video meetings.  In this program, I have distilled my 17 years of art quilting into do-able lessons, and customized coaching.  I also have some online classes.  All information about classes and coaching are listed on my blog menu at   I am also quite active on my FaceBook page at    
My online portfolio is at

Q: In addition to art quilting, do you engage in any other artistic endeavors?
A: Yes!  I am an avid West Coast Swing dancer, and I love to knit.

Q:  Do you ever get up in the middle of the night and start sewing?
A: Nope, never.  Sleep is too important to me!  And I do my best work when I am rested in the morning.
