About

Like many other folks, I learned to sew from my mother and grandmother, around the age of seven or eight. I have been making outfits to wear since I was about 9.

In the fall of 2001, I became addicted to quilting, and nearly every new baby in the family has gotten a handmade quilt since. I also enjoy cross-stitch and frequently incorporate it into small quilted wall hangings.

My daughter joined the 'fray' at age eight on her own machine, a Janome SewMini (this is a real machine, folks, not a Toys'r Us special!), and completed her own first quilt in December of 08. She's now graduated to using my Varimatic. She makes her own pouches and other small items to sell for fundraising. I'm exceedingly proud of her, as you can imagine.

Occasionally, I can be found making renaissance garb and fantastical costumes as well as semi-precious stone jewelry.

I have 3 cats & 2 dogs that are always willing to help 'supervise' and always put in their .04.

I am always willing to talk to you about a custom order quilt or jewelry, so please email me!
