Nancy K Turner's Profile

About

My name is Nancy K (Stoner)Turner and I started sewing when I was about 8 years old (a long time ago). My sisters and I learned to sew on a treadle sewing machine first. Knitting followed closely behind sewing and as a young girl became facsinated with making anything!

The treadle was a wedding gift to my Grandmother from her husband. Along with the treadle sewing machine he gave her an iron bed and a cow, I can't imagine getting that as a wedding gift today but I am sure she felt blessed to have it then! They lived in the hills of Pennsylvania in (I think) Riddlesburg. I still have that sewing machine! And when my son was about 3 we used it to made (a couple of the) quilt blocks for his quilt that he still has today (he is a senior in college).

I hope you enjoy what you see here. I take pride in what I do and each piece is made…
