Instructor: Myra Ortmann
Instructor Bio: I was inspired to learn how to sew from my Home Economics teacher in high school. I started quilting in 2002 but was more interested in a project that could be completed in a shorter period of time. My favorite thing to sew is purses and wallets. So, I began teaching purse/tote classes in 2013. I love to add my own variations to patterns and encourage others to do the same. I am a mother of 3 grown children & a grandmother of one. I currently attend college at Savannah Technical College and am studying to be a dental hygienist.
