About the teacher, Dianne Noe

Dianne loves to sew and bring new life to things that would otherwise be tossed. She is currently exploring unique ways to use the vast amounts of very usable textiles in thrift store finds or from friends. Alter, slash, or hack...she is just painting with fabric and ending up (usually!) with something new and fun to wear or use.
