Useful Information for you:
Sewing and quilting have long been family traditions. I learned to handstitch first and then progressed to machine sewing. As I look back, I always kept my hands busy while also feeling creative. This is what I love about making things! Since I received so many quilts from my grandmothers and aunts, I focused on other sewing interests for many years. It was in 2001 when I saw a longarm quilting machine for the first time and I had to get my hands on it. The adventure began. I discovered the thrill beyond traditional piecework and quilting while exploring the endless creative options through use of color, fiber, decorative stitchwork and surface embellishment. Every quilt is a unique and personal expression of its creator. I would love to be part of this creative process and assist you in the quilting.
