The Coffee Creek Quilters program was featured on KATU’s AM Northwest morning show on July 15th. In the segment, host Helen Raptis interviewed CCQ instructor Dawn Yoshizumi and former student Angie Ptomey.
Dawn explained how our program works and what our goals are. In addition to teaching technical and artistic quilting skills, “…our program teaches students self-esteem, confidence, and an ability to believe in themselves,” Dawn said.
Angie talked about what she learned in the program, both in terms of learning a craft and life skills. “I was so blessed to be a part of the program when it started in 2002. I still quilt to this day. It’s one of those creative outlets I can use when I’m having a hard time,” Angie said.
