STEM - Sew STEM - Diane Podgornik

I am a science teacher that has been sewing since I was a young child. I left my full-time job as a classroom teacher to pursue multiple business interests. I have a farm with an Airbnb Farm Stay, I teach part-time at a university, I design quilt and sewing patterns, and I sell my crafts at art and quilt shows.

My Sew STEM pattern line contains many science-themed patterns. I am fascinated by science. technology, engineering, and math. My favorites are space, geology, and freshwater. I have always been interested in inspiring the next generation to pursue a STEM career and I am hoping that I can inspire a few students through my patterns and artwork; especially girls!

But, not all of my patterns are about science because I have a few too many hobbies and never enough time. Most of my quilt patterns involve piecing but I do a lot of raw-edge applique as well.  I love paper piecing, so expect patterns in the future that involve this technique. I also have toy and doll clothes patterns.

If your quilt guild or quilt show has room, I would love to come and give a quilt presentation, teach a class, or workshop.
