Bren McCloskey's Profile

About

I'm very excited about my store. Belonging to my local Quilt Guild has enabled me to take classes with many nationally known quilters such as Ami Simms, Gwen Marston, Anita Shackelford, Linda Jenkins, Marianne Fons and Sue Nickels. My 1950 Singer Featherweight is one of my favorite sewing machines to piece with. I love to machine piece, machine quilt, hand applique, and hand quilt as well as adding embellishments. I am designing more and more of my own pieces and love the freedom that it brings to my creativity.

My Quilting Philosophy: Quilts bring comfort, love and warmth. Heirlooms.

Every time sewing or quilting comes up, my friends will say: 'well, brennie quilts'. So that's how my store name came about.

I love quilting - how different the same patterns can be with different fabrics. I love the peacefulness of sewing and piecing, the handwork, and how artful the quilts can be. Quilts make such wonderful heirlooms for our friends and families. I hope that comes through in all my pieces.

Feel free to ask any questions that you might have. Please convo me.

Each brenniequilts item required hours of sewing and almost all require some hand sewing. For shipping I package all items sealed in plastic to prevent water damage. I also ship in recycled boxes when I can just to save a few trees here and there. Please know that many hours of care and commitment have gone into making your item.

Just for the record I do not smoke. Prayer and positive thinking have gotten me through a lot of hard times, and I believe in kindness to others.
