Dianne Barnden

I am passionate about quilting and all things quilting. My quilting journey began 20 years ago when I signed up for a community education class “Beginners Sampler Quilt”, little did I know just what an impact that class would have in my future. I am thrilled to be able to introduce quilting into the life of another like minded people and to see their journey unfold. Through quilting I have met the most amazing people and found a creative outlet which at times pulls us through those little humps in the road.

I am a trained Montessori Teacher and currently am the head Teacher at Tawa Montessori Preschool. I am married to the most supportive husband. We have a grown up son who now insists he has enough quilts!
