I'm Shruti, and I live in Sangli, a quaint little town in India!!! I love getting up early (4 am), making quilts and teaching!

My favorites are quilts that break rules and I enjoy teaching surprisingly easy ways of making quilts! Be prepared for a lot of 'un'learning when you attend my classes. I also love helping Creative Women Entrepreneurs start and grow successful home-based businesses!!!
