I am an artist, wife, mother, grandmother, and a great grandmother. I live at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Where I take a lot of my inspiration from. My passion has always been to own my own fabric store.
I love to create clay sculptures, carve wood, but most of all design and create quilts! Sharing my passion with others is the highlight of my day. You can always find me in my shop working on something and waiting for someone to come in to visit.
Come and visit my store soon. Send me a message. It doesn’t have to be about purchasing fabric. Just a message to say Hi or to chat about the latest products. I love to visit with my friends and customers. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Creating is my passion
I began quilting again almost three years ago. After the death of my sewing buddy, some 17 years previous. I had given all my sewing machines, fabric, and accessories away at that time. Claiming I would never sew again. Last year my daughter begged me to take a quilting class with her. I had no desire to quilt because I believed all the quilts were still being, tediously cut out with scissors, pinned together and sewn by hand. Then stretched on quilting frames, and hand quilted. Believe me, I have had my fare share of hand quilting. It is back breaking work to sit in a chair with a needle and thread and stitch each line that was hand drawn on top of a quilt. I truly admire those women who would lovingly sit and quilt for hours.
But she was persistent. Then one day she was showing me a couple of quilts she had completed and the tools she had used to cut them out. (GO machine, rotary cutters, etc.) She then told me about the long arm quilting machines. WOW! What a difference this made in quilting and VERY easy too. So, I relented, bought my first sewing machine in over 16 years, and took the class with her. The day I got home with my new machine, I went on YouTube.com. One of the first videos I ran across was of Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. Well, I was hooked!
