About

My name is Terri.
It feels like I've been crafting and sewing my whole life. It's like breath to me. My earliest memory related to crafting is from summer vacation at my grandparents' farm in Mississippi. I learned "liquid embroidery" and how to make a Barbie prom dress out of the sleeve and cuff of my grandfather's button down shirt. I've made my own clothes and have cycled through needlepoint, counted cross-stitch, crochet, stenciling, rubber stamping, and jewelry. My husband and I moved to Wisconsin in 1990 after 9 years in the Air Force. It was there that learned how to quilt in 1999 and knew I had found "the one thing". One thing led to another and I opened my longarm quilting business in 2004. Since then, I've discovered pattern designing and fabric dyeing.

I worked in a quilt shop for three years, where I learned the importance of customer service. In the last few years, I was blessed with the honor of teaching quilting classes at a local technical college. There is nothing more rewarding than creating that "light" in the eyes of brand new quilters or having an experienced quilter tell you they love your class because they are learning from you.
From there, I moved into running the longarm studio at the technical college.
Our latest development is another relocation. This time, to Prescott Valley, AZ. As of October 1st, 2014 I am, once again, in a warm climate and I couldn't be happier.
My longarm business is now full time pattern designing and quilt-making for profit. I find that these things accommodate my ever changing schedule and allow me a flexibility I didn't have before. And all those ideas in my head are going to see the light of day!
I have begun to increase my number of listings rather quickly, however, if you don't see something you like, please check back now and then. Until then, may God bless your life in ways you never imagined!
