"I met Laura Quilligan while taking an online business course. Because of our mutual interest in fiber arts, we became good friends and accountability buddies in the class. This relationship carried over into a second class we both took online and we decided to continue our weekly contact after the classes ended. Laura has been immeasureably helpful to me and my pursuit of my handmade bag business, not only on the creative front but also in the business world of the artisan.
Over and over, she has generously offered advice, counseling, references, knowledge and wisdom that has proven to be invaluable to me. In the area of my inner game, Laura has helped me recognize and overcome obstacles that would have otherwise stopped me in my tracks and stifled my productivity.
She has a powerful way of walking me around troubling situations, showing me different viewpoints and different vantage points, thus allowing me to discover for myself, what is the best practice for overcoming that which blocks my path.
Many times I have discovered that I am the obstacle in my way and Laura has helped me to get out of my own way without condescension. With love, acceptance and validation of who I am, she has helped clarify my tendencies of self doubt, guilt and judgement. I greatly appreciate Laura as my accountability buddy, and inadvertently, by her own organic nature, my creativity coach".
Thank you Laura. Patricia Mastrandrea "Build a Bag", "Upcycled Sewing", designer/artisan
"Laura creates a safe and supportive container for her coaching clients. I found her to be an attentive and deep listener. Laura guides you gently and works in a very affirming way. I felt very held, supported and empowered by the process, as she really helps you to find the answers that are already inside yourself. She has an ability to read between the lines and helps to bring clarity and focus. I would highly recommend Laura and her creativity coaching"

"Laura has a special gift of “rooting” out a problem and providing the perfect solution. In my case, I was struggling with transferring my emotions to paper. I have been journaling for years and it dawned on me, I never journal how I feel and feeling is everything. Our feeling is our creative juice! I have resisted feeling. Experience has taught me it’s best not to.
She suggested I start “audio journaling” about events that bring emotion as they happen (as I am feeling the emotion). My voice carries the energy of the emotion – Genius! This exercise led very quickly to journaling on the page, with feeling. As a result my creative work is moving forward again. Thank you Laura! You are a wonder and I will be forever grateful!"

As a fiber artist Laura Quilligan is able to apply her intuition, passion, knowledge and skill into creating brilliant vibrant colorful works of art on cloth, that is not only beautiful but wearable too. As a coach she is able to help you create your own beautiful work too! She can hear your passion and ideas and is able to provide insightful questions, exercises, writing prompts and so much more so you can clarify and then integrate your creativity into your unique form as well as function. I looked forward to my creativity coaching sessions with Laura and found that through her gentle approach I was able to enthusiastically complete my writing and graphical project.
