Additionally, her work has been featured at art centers and galleries in Europe, USA and Chile.

Since 2020 she has been teaching online quilting and design classes, and she also creates many on demand classes for those who need to learn at their own pace and time. Online classes allow her to connect with students from many different countries, which is a very enriching experience. She has taught many quilters and quilt guilds all around the world.
