Welcome to my Patreon page! I'm so glad you're considering sponsoring me.

I’ve been sewing for more than 40 years. My mother was a professional seamstress, and she taught me to sew at a young age.

I began by sewing my own clothes (as well as clothes for my dolls and Barbies). I sewed all my own clothes through junior and high school and into college. When I married, I sewed curtains for every room in our house and set about learning to make slipcovers and do upholstery.

I took a basic quilting class through my local Viking sewing dealer. The instructor quit halfway through the class, but I was lucky enough to get some help later that summer from a quilting instructor at Mid-Appalachian Quilters (MAQ). The year was 2003 or 2004 (I didn’t know then to put a label on my quilts!).

Since then, I’ve taken dozens of classes, attended many quilt shows, and some of my quilts have won awards.

I began teaching quilting in 2006 at my local Joann’s store. I have since taught at several quilt guilds and teach at local quilt shops. I also give lectures and present trunk shows.

I have made quilts in many styles, but my focus these days is making “memory” quilts–quilts made from clothing, that contain photos or other mementos, or that are made for a special occasion.

I also design quilts and sell patterns--everything from small wall hangings to king-size quilts. Most of my work is commissions. I own a longarm, so I finish quilts that were pieced by others but I also make custom quilts from start to finish.

I'll be sharing posts about the process of creating, and I'll ask for your input at times. You can help me test new quilt patterns and even suggest names for new patterns!

Your support here will enable me to create new patterns and create how-to and quilt-along videos.

I'm excited to get to know you here!
