Claudia's Creations: July 21-25, 2021

Claudia Burch Dinnell is a native of Phoenix, Arizona. Her love of quilting began with applique and has grown to hand quilting, piecing, and machine quilting. Her award winning quilt, Stars in the garden, won 1st place for creative digitizing, embroidery, and color.

Now, with more than 25 years experience, she's all about the embroidery module! Her imagination is unleashed through each applique piece- highlighted with pattern run stitches, fills and outlines that create an awe inspiring look.

Claudia's specialties include large Redwork Style Designs, creating her own technique for multi-hooping and teaching innovative beginning and intermediate free motion machine quilting classes.

As a Bernina Ambassador, Claudia shares her knowledge with the Designer Plus V8 Software classes.

Claudia motivates students to create their own works of art and enjoys teaching embroidery, quilting and digitizing workshops throughout the United States. She continues to digitize her own designs and her patterns are available through mast quilt shops.

Here's what our customers are saying about our Trips, Retreats, and More...


"Please don't hesitate you will have new friends from across the country for a life time. It is fun and regardless if you are an older beginner or an advance quilter you will learn and pass your experience on to others. You will not be disappointed. PS I am a shy person and relaxed and had a great time."

-Land Ahoy Orlando Traveler

"This is the first trip of this kind that I have taken and am already saving to take another! Our "bus moms" Sandra and Nancy were beyond great! The value of the experience, tours, acoomodations, etc. were well worth the price of the trip!."

-Linda A.

"For transitioning from cruising to land for a quilt retreat, Stitchin Heaven did an amazing job. There were lots of little gifts and surprises along the way. Chocolate was handed out when called for. The excursion to the fabric shop was lovely and the lunch they provided top notch. The trip to the Titanic Museum was one that I will not forget for a very long time."
