About the Instructor:
Vanina Doce-Mood has been sewing and creating since she was a teenager, but didn’t start quilting until she was pregnant with her daughter, 9 years ago. She fell in love with it and hasn’t stopped making quilts since then! She loves bright colors and mismatching patterns, and the endless possibilities textiles offer. She lives in a red house in Oakland with her husband and daughter, a dog, a cat, a fish and 4 chickens. When she's not sewing, you can find her on the dance floor of different Bay Area locations teaching dance to kids and adults.
